- Acupuncture is an ancient technique with an oriental heritage, but today it is practised all over the world.
- To practice acupuncture in Australia you must have a bachelor degree in acupuncture and you must be registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
- Acupuncture differs from dry needling in many ways, however one primary difference is that after the needles are inserted, they are left in place for around 20-minutes. In dry needling, the needles are left in place for between 30-seconds and 2-minutes. Acupuncture needling is generally more gentle than dry needling techniques.
- The needles used for acupuncture are single use only and are very fine, not much thicker than a hair!
- Acupuncture can be used to aid in relieving pain and stiffness.
- Acupuncture can help treat many other conditions including headaches, digestive disorders and women’s health issues.
- Acupuncture and massage can be used together in a single session. Both techniques are part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice.
- Other painful conditions that may benefit from acupuncture are tennis elbow, arthritis and sprains.
- Facial acupuncture may also reduce signs of ageing.
- Additionally, most people find acupuncture very relaxing!
