Acupuncture

Acupuncture at BodyWise is a combination of traditional Eastern philosophies incorporating nutrition and lifestyle advice, as well as more modern science-based electo-acupuncture. Your therapist recognizes and facilitates your body’s inherent capacity for self-healing and repair. This is incorporated into your acupuncture treatment which also encompasses unity of body, mind and spirit.

Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine that was developed thousands of years ago. Supported by its longevity and proven by more recent clinical pain research, acupuncture is an ever-evolving practice that was originally based upon observation and experience, but now has scientific validation.

Traditional acupuncture operates on the Chinese Medicine philosophy that health is not just the absence of disease, but rather the complete balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. The philosophy also recognises that your body has an inherent capacity for self-healing, and all attempts are made to work in collaboration with these bodily mechanisms.

Treatment methods include:

  • Acupuncture (and electro-acupuncture),
  • moxibustion (heated needles),
  • nutritional and lifestyle advice,
  • cupping
  • Tuina (Chinese Massage).

The modern principals of electro-acupuncture may also be incorporated into your treatment. This treatment has been proven to stimulate the release of pain-relieving substances from your central nervous system.

At BodyWise, Acupuncture is often combined with Physiotherapy treatment principles or Cranio-Sacral techniques. The direction of treatment will be guided by your therapist taking a comprehensive medical history during the 1 hour consultation.
