Acupuncture North Ryde

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, a key component of Chinese medicine, has a rich history spanning over 5,000 years. Today, it has gained widespread popularity in the Western world as a natural and holistic form of healthcare, with millions of individuals benefiting from its practice.

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 should you be prepared for during your acupuncture session?

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 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.

  Exploring Common Inquiries About Acupuncture

What can I expect in terms of sensation during acupuncture?

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?

Safety is paramount in our acupuncture treatments at NDPE. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists ensures that every precaution is taken to provide you with a safe and worthwhile experience. We adhere to rigorous standards and use sterile needles that meet Australian regulations. It is crucial to entrust your acupuncture treatment to qualified and experienced therapists, as improper techniques may pose risks. With our skilled practitioners, you can have peace of mind knowing that your well-being is our utmost concern.

What precautions or self-care measures should I follow post-acupuncture?

After your acupuncture session, it is advisable to take some time to rest and allow your body to fully benefit from the treatment. While you are able to resume light activities immediately, it is best to avoid vigorous exercise and alcohol for a few hours. Acupuncture has a calming effect on the body, and it is not uncommon to feel sleepy afterwards. We recommend considering this and planning accordingly for your first session.
