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 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 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 Can You Expect During Your Acupuncture Appointment?

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 last between 20 and 40 minutes. You will lie comfortably on a treatment table while one of our skilled physiotherapists carefully inserts thin needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. These needles are sterile and single-use, ensuring a hygienic treatment process.

Acupuncture Questions and Answers

Are there any discomforts associated with acupuncture?

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.

Is acupuncture considered a safe treatment?

Your well-being and safety are of utmost importance to us at NDPE, particularly when it comes to acupuncture. We prioritise your health by strictly adhering to Australian standards and using sterile needles for every acupuncture session. Our physiotherapists are highly skilled and experienced in performing acupuncture safely and carefully. We understand the potential risks associated with improper acupuncture techniques, which is why we urge you to choose a qualified and experienced therapist for your treatment. With our team, you can trust that your acupuncture session will be a worthwhile experience.

Do I need to rest after a session?

Following your acupuncture appointment, it is beneficial to allow yourself some rest to fully experience the effects of the treatment. While light activities can be resumed immediately, it is advisable to avoid intense exercise and alcohol for a few hours. Acupuncture induces a sense of calm and relaxation, which may make you feel sleepy afterwards. We suggest considering this possibility and planning accordingly, particularly for your first session. Prioritising rest will derive the maximum benefit from your acupuncture experience.
