Acupuncture is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world and originates from China. It has been in continuous use for over 2000 years and can be useful in treating musculoskeletal conditions and many other health complaints.
The Acupuncturists at Move have spent four years studying a Bachelor in Acupuncture. They have also studied extensively in China and Japan.
Acupuncture is considered a very safe therapy as serious side effects are extremely rare. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into the skin.
Research into the effects of Acupuncture has shown it to be effective many conditions, including:
- back pain
- neck pain
- headaches and migraine
- fertility and pregnancy
- sleep disorders
- fatigue and low energy
- pain associated with pregnancy
- anxiety and depression
- stress and tension
- hormonal imbalance
- Move offers both Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture.
Acupuncture was introduced to Japan in the Sixth century by a physician/monk named Chisu. In the intervening centuries, Acupuncture was modified and refined into the Japanese style. In Japanese Acupuncture the needles are thinner and the approach is generally gentler.
All of our Acupuncturists at MOVE are Bachelor level trained, registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and in compliance with their national registration, all regularly complete and are involved in continuing professional development and education outside of our practice.
