Acupuncture Chatswood | What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture in Chatswood is a traditional, oriental healthcare practice. The technique has been in use for many thousands of years and is now increasingly utilised in hospitals and aged care facilities.  It is enjoyed by people around the world from a wide variety of cultural and social backgrounds.

The World Health Organisation in a 2003 report stated: “In its 2500 years of development, a wealth of experience has been accumulated, attesting to the wide range of diseases and conditions that it (acupuncture) can effectively treat” (Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trial).

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into anatomic sites called 'acupuncture points' to clear energy blockages and promote the regular flow of qi (energy). Further enhancement is possible by stimulating the acupuncture points with other techniques such as moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation, and massage.

Acupuncture may be recommended by many health practitioners as an adjunct treatment alongside conventional medicine for common health conditions.

The important thing to recognise is the fact that acupuncture is a natural treatment and is generally considered to be safe (including children, pregnant women, and the elderly) but occasionally may be associated with possible adverse reactions in individual cases (as with all health treatments).

There are other situations, such as addiction, stroke rehabilitation, headache, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and asthma, in which acupuncture may be useful as an adjunct treatment or an acceptable alternative or be included in a comprehensive management program” (NIH Consensus Conference.
