Acupuncture Rydalmere

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 primary purpose of acupuncture is to restore and rebalance the flow of Qi, the vital energy, within the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body consists of a network of interconnected meridians, which serve as pathways for the flow of Qi. When there is an imbalance or disruption in the flow of Qi, it is believed to result in physical or emotional symptoms. By strategically inserting acupuncture needles at specific points along these meridians, practitioners seek to regulate Qi and facilitate 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.

Your acupuncture session will last between 20 and 40 minutes. During your acupuncture sessions, you will lie down while one of our physiotherapists gently inserts the thin needles into your specific points to stimulate the nerves under the skin’s surface. We ensure the acupuncture process remains sterile by using sterile, single-use acupuncture needles.

Your Acupuncture Questions Answered

Does acupuncture hurt?

  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.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with acupuncture?

At NDPE, your safety is our top priority. When it comes to acupuncture, we follow strict guidelines and use sterile needles that meet Australian standards. Our experienced physiotherapists are well-trained in performing acupuncture safely and thoroughly. We understand that improper acupuncture techniques may lead to adverse reactions, which is why we emphasise the importance of choosing a qualified and experienced therapist for your treatment. Rest assured that with us, you’re in safe hands.

Do I need to rest after a session?

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.
