Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that helps in the management of many conditions. At NDPE we offer quality care including acupuncture for local residents in West Ryde and surrounding areas such as Eastwood, Denistone, Epping, and Ryde.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient practice that originated in Chinese medicine over 5,000 years ago. Today, it is widely recognised and utilised as a holistic approach to healthcare in the Western world. Millions of people worldwide have benefited from its natural and comprehensive approach.

The primary objective of acupuncture is to restore and rebalance the flow of Qi, the vital energy, within the body. Traditional Chinese medicine views the body as a complex network of meridians, or energy pathways, through which Qi circulates. When there is an imbalance or obstruction in the flow of Qi, it is thought to manifest as physical or emotional symptoms. By strategically inserting acupuncture needles at specific points along these meridians, practitioners aim to regulate Qi and promote its smooth and harmonious circulation.

During acupuncture, small and fine needles are gently inserted into the skin to stimulate the nerves and tissues. This process encourages the affected area to heal and relieve tension, stress, and discomfort. It is important to understand that acupuncture is typically not painful. You may experience a mild sensation of dullness or a slight tingle, but many patients find the experience to be calm and relaxing.

What can you anticipate during your acupuncture appointment?

During your initial appointment, our experienced team will conduct a comprehensive assessment to evaluate whether acupuncture may be a suitable treatment option for you. We will discuss your symptoms, medical history, and treatment goals to create a personalised treatment plan.

Acupuncture sessions typically range from 20 to 40 minutes in duration. During these sessions, you will lie down comfortably while one of our experienced physiotherapists carefully inserts thin needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. These needles are sterile and designed for single use, ensuring a clean treatment environment.

Your Acupuncture Questions Answered

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture is often perceived as a painful treatment due to the use of needles. However, acupuncture needles are designed to be as thin and delicate as possible to minimise any discomfort. The needles used in acupuncture are significantly finer than those used for injections or blood tests, and they are carefully inserted into specific points on the body. Most people describe the sensation as a mild tingling, warmth, or dull ache at the site of insertion. It is rare for acupuncture to cause significant pain. If any discomfort is experienced during the treatment, it is usually temporary and subsides quickly.

Is acupuncture considered a safe treatment?

At NDPE, your safety is our top priority. When it comes to acupuncture, we follow strict guidelines and use sterile needles that meet Australian standards. Our experienced physiotherapists are well-trained in performing acupuncture safely and thoroughly. We understand that improper acupuncture techniques may lead to adverse reactions, which is why we emphasise the importance of choosing a qualified and experienced therapist for your treatment. Rest assured that with us, you’re in safe hands.

Is there a recommended downtime or recovery period after acupuncture?

Following your acupuncture appointment, it is beneficial to allow yourself some rest to fully experience the effects of the treatment. While light activities can be resumed immediately, it is advisable to avoid intense exercise and alcohol for a few hours. Acupuncture induces a sense of calm and relaxation, which may make you feel sleepy afterwards. We suggest considering this possibility and planning accordingly, particularly for your first session. Prioritising rest will derive the maximum benefit from your acupuncture experience.
