About Chinese Medicine

  Peter and Teresa are Chinese medical herbalists and Acupuncturists who have found the benefit in studying the Chinese Medical system and utilising it's methods and concepts with the help of modern research to create a modern application of an ancient health science.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that utilises several techniques to stimulate certain points on the body. The most common application of acupuncture is using very fine needles to penetrate the skin. Points are chosen because they have been shown to influence the various systems and processes in the body.

Developed millennia ago in China, numerous recent studies conducted by scientists in China and in the West have been able to start a process of recognising how effective or ineffective acupuncture is for specific conditions. This research is an exciting and informative development.

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is an acupuncture technique, becoming popular through weekend courses for physical therapists, which focuses primarily on needling tight and painful muscles. Acupuncturists take years to study and train in these techniques, and are registered nationally.

How are Chinese Herbs Formulated?

Chinese herbs can be important helpers when used to support acupuncture treatment. However, Chinese herbal medicine is often used on its own as a stand-alone treatment.

Chinese herbalists view disease as the loss of balance across systems of the body, which can manifest with patterns of both physical and mental signs and symptoms. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are used to support the body's natural ability to heal itself by selecting herbs and combining them in synergistic pairs to produce complex effects. The key is removing obstacles to the body's innate ability to restore balance. Health is maintained or lost by many factors and traditional Chinese medicine recognised factors such as heredity, environmental pathogens, diet and excessive emotional states.
