Acupuncture Telopea

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 is a component of Chinese medicine that has been in practice for over 5,000 years. It has gained popularity in the Western world as a holistic and natural form of healthcare and is used by millions worldwide.

The primary objective of acupuncture is to restore and rebalance the flow of Qi, the vital energy, within the body. Traditional Chinese medicine views the body as a complex network of meridians, or energy pathways, through which Qi circulates. When there is an imbalance or obstruction in the flow of Qi, it is thought to manifest as physical or emotional symptoms. By strategically inserting acupuncture needles at specific points along these meridians, practitioners aim to regulate Qi and promote 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 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.

Acupuncture sessions typically range from 20 to 40 minutes in duration. During these sessions, you will lie down comfortably while one of our experienced physiotherapists carefully inserts thin needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. These needles are sterile and designed for single use, ensuring a clean treatment environment.

  Exploring Common Inquiries About Acupuncture

Does acupuncture hurt?

Concerns about pain during acupuncture are understandable, given the association of needles with discomfort. However, acupuncture needles are incredibly thin and designed for minimal sensation. The needles are typically inserted gently and smoothly, resulting in a generally painless experience. While individual responses to acupuncture may vary, many patients find the process relaxing and soothing. It’s worth noting that any minor bruising or small spots of blood that may occur at the needle insertion site are usually harmless and temporary. Rest assured that acupuncture is known for its gentle approach and is widely regarded as a comfortable therapy.

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.

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.
