Acupuncture Chatswood – So what is it? Our Chatswood health team explain…

Acupuncture is classed as a complementary medical practice that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Originating in China more than 2500 years ago, acupuncture techniques involve inserting very fine needles into specific body points to alleviate pain. However, contrary to popular belief, acupuncture is more than just a form of pain relief. It is, in fact, a complete medical protocol which is also used to diagnose and treat disease in addition to improving a person’s overall health. It is also often combined with Chinese herbal medicine.

The traditional explanation for how Chatswood acupuncture works is that it modifies or balances the body’s flow of energy (known as the ‘qi’ or ‘chi’) to address a wide range of disorders. But in addition, there is also evidence to support the fact that the fine needles influence the activity of a bodily substance called adenosine. This is an amino acid which becomes active in the skin after an injury to help ease the pain.

Acupuncture Chatswood – Frequently asked questions

Acupuncture Chatswood - Can I expect immediate results?
More often than not this depends upon what the patient is being treated for. If you’re being treated for backache pain, for instance, you may notice immediate pain relief. However if you’re being treated for an internal imbalance or disharmony, then results make take several more treatments
Does acupuncture in Chatswood hurt?
In a word no! The most that a patient normally experiences is a slight dull ache around where the needle is inserted. Remember needles are extremely fine and designed not to cause pain upon insertion. Sometimes when needles are inserted into body extremities such as fingertips or the end of toes, these areas can sometimes feel a little ‘sharp’. However, this sensation normally doesn’t last for very long.
Are there any side effects to acupuncture in Chatswood?
Patients can feel a little light-headed or tired for an hour or so after treatment. However, this is good because it’s a sign of the body rebalancing. Symptoms usually only last for a few sessions until the body gets used to it. The best acupuncture in Chatswood has an immediate therapeutic effect and most patients look forward to this calming feeling.
How many sessions of acupuncture in Chatswood will I need?
Unfortunately, when it comes to acupuncture, Chatswood patients should note that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer. However, and usually, the severity of the condition would normally determine treatment length. For example, people with symptoms of flu or cold may only need one treatment. Whereas, for someone who is in recovery after a stroke, a much longer treatment (12 courses or so) is usually normal.
