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

Acupuncture is a gentle technique where thin, fine needles are delicately inserted into the skin. These needles stimulate the nerves and tissues, triggering the body’s natural healing response and aiming to alleviate tension, stress, and discomfort. It is worth noting that acupuncture is generally not painful. You may feel a mild sensation of dullness or a slight tingling, but most patients find the procedure to be relaxing and soothing.

What can you anticipate during your acupuncture appointment?

When you come in for your initial appointment, our skilled team will conduct a comprehensive assessment to assess whether acupuncture may be appropriate for your condition. We will have a detailed discussion about your symptoms, medical background, and treatment goals to establish a personalised treatment plan.

Acupuncture sessions typically last between 20 and 40 minutes. You will lie comfortably on a treatment table while one of our skilled physiotherapists carefully inserts thin needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. These needles are sterile and single-use, ensuring a hygienic treatment process.

Your Acupuncture Questions Answered

Are there any discomforts associated with acupuncture?

  If you have concerns about the potential pain associated with acupuncture, rest assured that acupuncture needles are not like the ones used for injections or blood tests. They are incredibly thin, much finer than a hair, and are inserted with great care and gentleness. As a result, most people find the experience to be painless and even relaxing. It’s important to note that everyone’s sensitivity to acupuncture may vary, but the overall consensus is that the procedure is not painful. Occasionally, minor bruising or tiny spots of blood may occur at the insertion site, but these are usually harmless and resolve quickly.

Can I trust the safety of acupuncture as a healthcare option?

Your well-being and safety are of utmost importance to us at NDPE, particularly when it comes to acupuncture. We prioritise your health by strictly adhering to Australian standards and using sterile needles for every acupuncture session. Our physiotherapists are highly skilled and experienced in performing acupuncture safely and carefully. We understand the potential risks associated with improper acupuncture techniques, which is why we urge you to choose a qualified and experienced therapist for your treatment. With our team, you can trust that your acupuncture session will be a worthwhile experience.

Should I take rest or avoid any activities after an acupuncture session?

To maximise the benefits of acupuncture, it is recommended to rest and give your body time to integrate the treatment. While you may engage in light activities right after your session, it is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for a few hours. Acupuncture has a relaxing effect, and you may feel pleasantly sleepy afterwards. It’s important to be aware of this potential effect and plan your schedule accordingly, especially for your initial session.
