Your visit with us

There are 3 main ways we can help you:

> Treating specific disorders to provide relief of symptoms and reduce complications. Acupuncture is also used to treat the cause of the disorder and reduce the likelihood of its recurrence.

> Maintenance treatment of a long term problem: this is to provide a more comfortable state of health and reduce the need for medication and surgery.

> Chinese Medicine is an effective form of preventative medicine because of its ability to detect and treat energy imbalances before they lead to disease. The earlier a disorder is detected the better, so regular check-ups are recommended.

How many treatments will I need?

The number and frequency of treatments depend on several factors. These include how long you have had the problem, the duration and intensity of your present disorder. Your age, constitution, individual circumstances and your desired health goal are all taken into account.

We will inform you of how many visits you might need and develop a treatment plan in your initial consultation.

Please note that under national law claims of efficacy of treatment are required to be made with reference to evidence of a high standard. Traditionally acupuncture has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions however not all have evidence of efficacy. The following conditions have been listed based on a range of strong evidence to inconclusive evidence. Note the colour key below for clarification on evidence level for conditions. For any clarification you please view the Acupuncture Evidence Project. To date additional conditions may be potentially treated using acupuncture and Chinese medicine however current western scientific evidence does not exist for these.
