Acupuncture Tennyson Point

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 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.

Acupuncture is a gentle procedure that involves the careful insertion of small, fine needles into the skin. These needles stimulate the nerves and tissues, promoting healing and providing relief from tension, stress, and discomfort. It is important to note that acupuncture is not a painful process, although you may experience a mild dull sensation or a slight tingle. Many patients find the experience to be calming and relaxing.

What will be your experience during your acupuncture appointment?

During your initial appointment, we will conduct a thorough assessment to determine whether acupuncture may be beneficial for you and discuss your treatment plan and goals with you.

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.

Your Acupuncture Questions Answered

Are there any discomforts associated with acupuncture?

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.

Is there a recommended downtime or recovery period after acupuncture?

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.
