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 main objective of acupuncture is to restore and rebalance the flow of energy, known as Qi, within the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body consists of interconnected meridians that serve as pathways for the flow of Qi. Imbalances or blockages in Qi is believed to manifest as physical or emotional symptoms. Through strategic placement of needles at specific acupuncture points along these meridians, acupuncturists aim to regulate Qi and facilitate its smooth and harmonious circulation.

Acupuncture is a gentle procedure that involves the careful insertion of small, fine needles into the skin. These needles stimulate the nerves and tissues, promoting healing and providing relief from tension, stress, and discomfort. It is important to note that acupuncture is not a painful process, although you may experience a mild dull sensation or a slight tingle. Many patients find the experience to be calming and relaxing.

What will be your experience 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.

Acupuncture Questions and Answers

Is acupuncture a painful procedure?

It is understandable to be concerned that acupuncture may be painful because it involves needles, which many associate with pain. However, acupuncture needles are very different to those used for other medical purposes. The needles are so fine that they are thinner than a hair and are inserted very gently. This makes for an experience that generally does not hurt. Some people may experience slight bruising or small spots of blood at the insertion site.

Is acupuncture safe?

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.

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

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.
