Acupuncture Leichhardt – Introduction
As a growing industry, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture in Australia attract a lot of interest. As a TCM practitioner at Journey Healthcare in Leichhardt, here are some of the questions that we are most frequently asked about Acupuncture.
What is Acupuncture and how does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is a healing technique that uses fine needles in specific points on the body. It treats conditions such back pain, muscle pain, headaches, stress, anxiety, as well as for organ-based issues like constipation, IBS, colds/flu, and general health.
Acupuncture fits into the wider system of TCM (much like surgery is one technique in the wider understanding of Anatomy and Western Medicine). Herbal therapy, Massage, and Moxibustion (heat therapy) are other aspects of TCM that may be employed to achieve results for the patient.
In our Leichhardt Chinese Medicine practise, we think of TCM is a whole health system. We understand the body in terms of Qi (‘chi’), Blood, Body Fluids, Yin and Yang, the Meridian (channel) Pathways, the organs and their actions and pathologies, and exterior pathogens (to name a few of the basic theories within TCM).
