At Acuharmony in Melbourne we have acupuncture treatments available.
Acupuncture is a system of traditional medicine that has been developed in China for over 2 thousand years and is now being practiced in many parts of the world.
Acupuncture utilises fine sterile stainless steel needles which are placed in various acupuncture points in the body. These needles are stimulated to obtain a slight tingling or numbing what is referred to as (de-qi – energy activation). This stimulation will cause the body to react to the stimulation and cause organs in the body to activate and bring about change.
It is said that the body becomes ill or sick if the flow of energy around the body is disrupted. Energy in the body can be disrupted in many different ways. There may be insufficient Qi or Energy. It may be lacking and be deficient in blood and or fluids. It may even have blockages of Energy or blood thus causing pain symptoms to arise. There may be numerous factors that contribute to ill health so it is best to go through a diagnosis.
Af practitioner would assess the bodies condition by looking at signs and asking about the patients symptoms. He/she would then feel the pulse and look at the tongue to gauge how the body is performing.
Once a diagnosis has been made the practitioner would write up a treatment formula with which is the best way to treat the condition to bring the body back into balance. He may use many different methods including Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxibustion
