Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture involves the surgical insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic pressure points on your body. Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Many practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and conncetive tissue. This stimulation turn boosts yours body's natural ability to fight pain and decrease inflammation.

 

Electro Acupuncture

 

Electro-acupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a weak electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. According to some acupuncturists, this practice augments the use of regular acupuncture, can restore health and well-being, and is particularly good for treating pain.

Acupressure

Acupressure is the ancient art of healing, which uses finger pressure on key points of the body, to stimulate the body's natural energy systems to promote healing. 
It employs the same diagnostic methods as in Traditional Chinese Medicine to investigate the health problems of the patient. Acupressure massage applies gentle, effective finger pressure, to acupuncture points to rebalance the energy flow.

 

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is an essential part of Chinese medicine which uses moxa, a soft woolly substance prepared from mugwort leaves (Artemisia vulgaris). In moxibustion the moxa is placed either directly on the skin or held just above it, over specific acupuncture points or meridians. The herb is lit and as it smoulders slowly, a therapeutic heat permeates the skin and affects the flow of "Qi" (energy) and blood in the area being treated.

 

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy involves the rubbing and kneading of soft tissues and muscles in the human body. This is to promote healing and enhance a person's health and well-being. Today, massage therapy is widely available.  In recent decades, massage has gained steam in the sports and beauty industries. It has proven beneficial for tackling the pain, discomfort and emotional distress.  

 

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of medicine in which a local suction is placed on the skin. Practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction effect is created by using heat (fire) or pumps.

 

Chinese Herbs

Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. Tradition as a whole greatly emphasizes  lifestyle management in order to prevent disease before it occurs. Chinese medicine recognizes that health is more than just the absence of disease and it has a unique capacity to maintain and enhance our capacity for wellbeing and happiness.

Testimonials

 

 

After injuring my back at work, I try various treatments unsuccessfully.
I came across acupuncture by coincidence when I was working down the road from the clinic. I called in for some information which I received from Peter, once he explained the benefits of acupuncture I booked an appointment.
The first session was relaxing and eased my pain. By the third session the pain was completely gone. I can't believe how effective the treatment was. I highly recommend acupuncture for back pain relief. Peter is very professional and knowledgeable.

Mike H.

Peter is very consultative and listens. His style of acupuncture is Korean finding the exact point, rather than the general area like the traditional one. Peter is a very positive person and friendly he puts you at ease within minutes of your first session (even for a needle phobic like me!). The results of his treatments are long lasting too.
