Acupuncture in Melbourne

A medical innovation that originated in China, acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that involves inserting thin needles into specific areas of the body. When carried out by a reputable Melbourne acupuncture clinic such as ours, this is a safe therapeutic treatment method that is used to relieve pain associated with tension headaches, migraines, lower back pain, and more. It has also been identified as a treatment for nausea, allergies, and severe dry mouth – to name just a few.

At Melbourne Chiro Clinic, the natural and holistic approach to medicine our acupuncturist focuses on means that we can provide excellent acupuncture in Melbourne to help restore balance to the flow of energy in your body. This is done by inserting needles into areas where specific nerves and muscles can be stimulated, increasing blood flow and triggering the body’s natural self-healing and pain management mechanisms.

The Benefits Offered by Acupuncture Treatment

There are many benefits associated with visiting our acupuncture Melbourne clinic and receiving acupuncture treatment. Some of these benefits include:

  • Acupuncture has very few side effects
  • Acupuncture can be therapeutic when combined with other natural treatment methods
  • Acupuncture treatment can help relieve pain of varying severity in specific areas of the body
  • Acupuncture offers an effective alternative for people who wish to avoid traditional pain medications

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Our acupuncture in Melbourne involves using fine, sterilised needles to stimulate acupuncture points. This clears energy blockages and enhances blood flow as the body reacts to the stimulation. The original theory behind Chinese acupuncture claimed that it encouraged the flow of “qi” through the body. More recent science suggests that there are also more tangible benefits, such as pain relief and the reduction of side effects of certain medications and therapies. Research into why acupuncture works is still ongoing, but there’s no arguing with the results.

Multiple biological responses occur in the body during the process of acupuncture. The nerve near the site of the needle is stimulated, sending messages to the central nervous system and brain, which encourages the brain to release chemicals that allow the patient to feel less pain or discomfort. These same signals are able to boost immunity by secreting neurotransmitters.

Does Acupuncture Treatment Hurt?

No, acupuncture treatment is not regarded as painful. The insertion of needles into the patient’s acupuncture points is not a painful experience, as the needles used are very fine. The patient may feel a minor tingling sensation or electric sensation when the needle penetrates the skin. For many patients who undergo acupuncture treatment on a regular basis, it can start to feel quite relaxing.
