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 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.

During acupuncture, small and fine needles are gently inserted into the skin to stimulate the nerves and tissues. This process encourages the affected area to heal and relieve tension, stress, and discomfort. It is important to understand that acupuncture is typically not painful. You may experience a mild sensation of dullness or a slight tingle, but many patients find the experience to be calm and relaxing.

What Can You Expect During Your Acupuncture Appointment?

During your initial appointment, our experienced team will conduct a comprehensive assessment to evaluate whether acupuncture may be a suitable treatment option for you. We will discuss your symptoms, medical history, and treatment goals to create a personalised 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

Is acupuncture a painful procedure?

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?

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.

Is there a recommended downtime or recovery period after 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.
