What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a component of Chinese medicine that has been in practice for over 5,000 years. It has gained popularity in the Western world as a holistic and natural form of healthcare and is used by millions worldwide.

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.

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?

During your initial appointment, we will conduct a thorough assessment to determine whether acupuncture may be beneficial for you and discuss your treatment plan and goals with you.

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

Is acupuncture a painful procedure?

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.

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?

Rest is recommended so you can get the most out of acupuncture, but you can generally resume light activities immediately after your appointment. You should refrain from vigorous exercise and alcohol for several hours. As it is generally a calming and relaxing experience, you may feel sleepy afterwards; we recommend you take this into account before your first session.
