Acupuncture Putney

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, an integral part of Chinese medicine, has been practised for over 5,000 years and has gained significant recognition as a holistic and natural approach to healthcare in the Western world. It is embraced by millions of individuals worldwide.

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.

Acupuncture Questions and Answers

Does acupuncture hurt?

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 considered a safe treatment?

When performed by an experienced therapist, such as our physiotherapists at NDPE, acupuncture is a very well-tolerated treatment for a range of conditions. We use sterile needles in accordance with stringent Australian standards to ensure your health and safety. Acupuncture that is performed improperly can result in adverse reactions, so it is important to choose an acupuncturist who is qualified and experienced.

Do I need to rest after a 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.
