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 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 Expect During Your Acupuncture Appointment?

At your first appointment, our dedicated team will conduct a thorough assessment to determine if acupuncture may be the right approach for your specific needs. We will discuss your symptoms, medical history, and desired outcomes to develop a tailored treatment plan.

During your acupuncture session, which usually lasts between 20 and 40 minutes, you will lie down in a relaxed position. Our highly trained physiotherapists will gently insert fine needles into specific acupuncture points on your body, targeting the underlying nerves beneath the skin’s surface. Rest assured that we prioritise your health by using sterile, disposable acupuncture needles.

  Exploring Common Inquiries About Acupuncture

Are there any discomforts associated with acupuncture?

  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.

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.
