Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese healing which balances the body, mind and spirit. Very fine sterile stainless steel needles (about 0.25mm) are inserted into the skin and muscle layers at carefully selected points to stimulate the body’s own healing process. The acupuncture points are located on the meridian networks that cover the body. It is the best method to relieve pain immediately, mind and body relaxation.

Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy method which a local suction is created on the skin by either using heat or hand pumps device. This method usually is used in combination with acupuncture to treat musculoskeletal pain where this action promotes blood flow to the injury areas (no cupping is done directly onto the open or inflamed wounds); hence the muscles will be relaxed, at the same time more oxygen and nutrients will be supplied to the local area which supports the recovery. Patients normally like it because it is painless and feel good after that. There will be bruises forms after the suctions, however they will disappear within 3 - 7 days.

Quick Facts About Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

  • What is Acupuncture?
    Acupuncture is part of the Chinese Traditional Medicine. It is an ancient system of healing and has been continuously refined during its 4500 year history. Today it is widely practiced in the West. The popularity is growing over the time. In New Zealand, ACC spent $24 million on acupuncture in 2014 compared to $4.4m in the past decade.
  • Why does Acupuncture works better then pain killer?
    Anti-inflammatory agents such as Ibuprofen are commonly used to manage pain and inflammation related to musculoskeletal disorders. The concern is that in trying to control swelling with drugs, we may actually impede the bodies' natural response to heal. There are also potential side effects that can occur from anti-inflammatory agents such as stomach ulcer, kidney failure and increase risk of heart attack. Acupuncture is a natural remedy that can reduce inflammation and therefore relieve pain successfully. More importantly, acupuncture helps facilitate recovery by accessing energy pathways called meridians. The placement of the acupuncture needles on these pathways improves energy flow, which speeds healing. Acupuncture is also a great treatment for chronic injuries like tendonitis, bursitis and arthritis. The treatment principle is more holistic and individualized; the approach of treatment is to restore energy in order to support healing, therefore great method for weak people or elderly.
  • How many treatments?
    The number of treatments can vary: 3 to 6 treatments for acute conditions; usually 10 or more treatments for chronic conditions. In short, the sooner you have the treatment, the less treatment you need. If you are covered by ACC, in general 10 to 16 treatments are given depends on your GP diagnosis.
  • When can I go for acupuncture after injury?
    It is always a good practice to visit GPs first because for severe injury which you often need to have x-ray done. Otherwise, the sooner you have the acupuncture done, the less treatment you will require because prolonged inflammation encourages formation of scar tissues which is more stubborn to treat. It is absolutely good idea to have acupuncture after surgery because it is not only help to recover faster but also help to gain back the range of movement closed to what it was naturally.
