Acuharmony Acupuncture Clinic is Melbourne’s renouned acupuncture clinic servicing the public for over four years now.
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 points help the movement of qi (energy) and assist in unblocking or energy tonification. 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 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.
A practitioner will assess the bodies condition by looking at signs and asking about the patients symptoms. The pulse is then felt on both wrists to feel for imbalances. Lastly the practitioner will look at the tongue to gauge how the body is asimilating food, fluid and energy.
Once a diagnosis has been made the practitioner will write up a treatment formula and decide which points to select to best treat the condition and help bring the body back into balance. There are many different methods of treatment including Acupuncture, Cupping, Gua Sha, Blood Letting and Moxibustion.
The amount of treatments that you require depends on the condition. Many cases only require one or two sessions. Otherwise a series of treatments and/or program is required.
