What is Acupuncture and How Does it Work?

Acupuncture is a medical practice that has been practised for thousands of years. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, it involves the use of thin, flexible, and solid stainless steel needles that the expert practitioners insert into the body to relieve various symptoms.

Acupuncture therapy works on a simple phenomenon – that the human body circulates nutrients and blood. The practitioners believe that acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system that releases chemicals into the brain, spinal cord, and muscles. Therefore, it simulates the natural healing abilities of a body while promoting emotional and physical well-being.

This natural treatment may offer relief from the following health conditions:

  • Digestive issues like Gastritis, Hemorrhoids, or Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Emotional conditions like anxiety, insomnia, depression, nervousness, etc.
  • Infertility, menstrual pain

  • Neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, Migraines, etc.

  • Male infertility, prostatitis

  • Addiction, and more

Benefits of Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture is a common complementary therapy that can help manage many different health conditions. The best advantage of using this technique is it drug-free and carries a low risk of side effects. Plus, you can effectively combine modern acupuncture with other treatments.

At Diamond Valley Physiotherapy, we are experienced in providing treatment for the following health issues:

  • Pain Management: We use natural acupuncture techniques to treat headaches, low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and osteoarthritis (OA). Furthermore, you can opt for our physio acupuncture service in which we combine both methods to offer better pain management results.

  • Stress and Anxiety: Acupuncture also plays a major role in relieving stress and anxiety. It does so by reducing the cortisol level, a stress hormone, and stimulating the production of natural feel-good hormones in the body like dopamine.

  • Digestive Issues: Our acupuncture treatments can also help with gastrointestinal disorders. This natural process can control gut mobility and relax gut movement. As a result, it stimulates the underlying digestive process to relieve digestive symptoms like bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.

  • Respiratory Conditions: Another benefit of acupuncture treatment is that it may reduce inflammation and alter the way your body responds to allergens. Apart from treating nasal congestion, wheezing, sneezing, and more, it may relieve your asthma symptoms.

  • Reproductive Health: If you are facing fertility issues, then try considering acupuncture therapy. It can help increase blood circulation to the reproductive organs and support both male and female fertility.

What to Expect During Acupuncture Treatment?

The expert at our acupuncture clinic first asks the clients about their medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle. We may also run some tests to examine your current health conditions. The acupuncturist may closely examine:

  • The colour, shape, and coating of your tongue

  • The body parts that are hurting or in pain

  • Your face colour

  • The rhythm, strength, and quality of your wrists’ pulse

Based on the exam, our practitioner will determine the kind of treatment that will help you the most. Since acupuncture works by sticking needles into your body, we will select the appropriate points, as per the assessment, to insert them. Here is what you can expect while taking this treatment:

  • Comfortable Positioning: You would have to sit or lie down on a comfortable table

  • Needle Insertion: The practitioner will insert needles into specific spots on your body. Insertion of the needles may cause you a little discomfort or pain

  • Treatment Duration: These sessions may take time depending on the severity of your health condition

  • Comfort Assurance: Some patients find acupuncture deeply relaxing and may even fall asleep during the session. We will ensure that you feel comfortable during the whole session

Acupuncture is done using thin hair-like needles so it may cause a little discomfort. You may feel a dull ache, warmth, tingling, or heaviness around the acupuncture point during treatment which is usually not unpleasant. However, some clients report acupuncture makes them feel energised while others say they feel relaxed.

The number of sessions will depend on your health condition and the severity of treatment required. Likely, a common treatment plan would typically take fewer treatments than that of a severe and many health concerns. Contact us on (03) 9439 7671 to discuss your specific health concerns and get the best solution.

The time taken for an acupuncture session to last depends upon the type of health concern you have. It may last up to 60 minutes, although some appointments may be much shorter. Get in touch with us to know the specific details and get a customised solution for yourself.
