What's the goal of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are traditional treatment methods that have been developed over thousands of years. Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny needles into specific areas of the body to induce a specific medicinal effect.

The main goal of acupuncture is to improve circulation and the free flow of Qi (or energy) within the body. By enhancing circulation, acupuncture can help deliver oxygen, nutrients and white blood cells to areas of the body that require healing.

What does the evidence say about Acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be effective in the treatment of acute and chronic ailments as shown in research studies which have been collated in the Acupuncture Evidence Project. Acupuncture treats the whole person, addressing the underlying causes of the condition, as well as the symptoms.

Our Acupuncturists take the time to listen and treat the individual, taking into account the complex interplay of your body, mind and emotions.

Our experienced acupuncturists also use cupping and gua sha in their treatments where appropriate.

Cupping therapy is a Chinese Medicine therapy where a sterilised glass cup is placed on the skin and, using heat or suction, pressure changes cause an increase in blood flow to the affected area. Cupping can be used on acupuncture points in the body and directly on symptomatic tissue.

Gua sha is a traditional Chinese Medicine therapy in which the practitioner uses a smooth edged tool to massage the symptomatic area to produce an area of controlled microtrauma within the soft tissue. It resembles a small rash-like area of red dots. This increases blood flow to the area and causes a local inflammatory response, increasing the bodies healing response locally.

Chinese herbal medicine has a long history of use, dating back millennia, and it continues to be used in many countries today as the first and primary treatment of choice. Herbal medicine traditionally involved the use of raw herbs boiled in water for a period of time, with the subsequent broth reduced to concentrate the active ingredients which was then consumed as a liquid tea.

While raw herbs continue to be used in contemporary practice, a range of other options for taking herbal medicine are also available.

Our practitioners are experienced and highly trained clinicians specialising in the use of Chinese herbal medicines for a wide range of illness and dysfunction. Our staff can assist you in deciding whether Chinese herbal medicine will be of benefit to your health.

While it may not be a guaranteed cure, acupuncture can potentially provide several benefits:

  1. Symptom Relief: Acupuncture can target specific points related to your respiratory and immune systems. This may help alleviate common hay fever symptoms like congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and itching.

  2. Immune System Support: It might help regulate your immune system’s response to allergens. This means your body may react less strongly to pollen and other allergens that trigger your hay fever symptoms.

  3. Inflammation Reduction: Allergic rhinitis involves inflammation in your nasal passages and airways. Acupuncture could help reduce this inflammation, making you feel more comfortable.

  4. Stress Reduction: Stress can worsen hay fever symptoms. Acupuncture is known for its relaxing effects, which could indirectly improve your condition by reducing stress.

  5. Energy Flow: In traditional Chinese medicine, they believe in balancing your body’s vital energy, known as “qi.” Acupuncture can help unblock and balance the flow of qi throughout your body, potentially improving your overall well-being and reducing allergy symptoms.

Acupuncture may offer several potential benefits for improving sleep:

  1. Stress Reduction: Acupuncture is known for its calming and relaxing effects. It can help reduce stress and anxiety, which are common contributors to sleep disturbances.

  2. Regulating Sleep Patterns: Acupuncture can help regulate your body’s natural circadian rhythms, promoting a more regular sleep-wake cycle.

  3. Pain Relief: If pain is contributing to your sleep problems, acupuncture may help alleviate pain by releasing endorphins, which can lead to better sleep.

  4. Balancing Energy: In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture aims to balance the body’s vital energy, or “qi.” When your energy is balanced, you may find it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night.

  5. Enhancing Relaxation: Acupuncture sessions often include a calming and peaceful environment. This, along with the needling process, can help induce a state of relaxation conducive to sleep.

Remember that acupuncture is not a quick-fix solution for sleep issues, and it may require several sessions to see noticeable results. By working with a qualified acupuncturist and coordinating with your healthcare provider, you can develop a comprehensive approach to improve your sleep quality and address the underlying factors contributing to your sleep problems.
