Acupuncture

At Mont Albert Acupuncture we use gentle needle techniques to regulate the flow of Qi (Vital Energy) in the b body to restore health and encourage healing

One of the most common questions we are asked is how does inserting needles in the skin help the body heal. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine theory is based on maintaining a healthy flow of Qi in the body. There are over 350 acupuncture points in the body that connect to different organs and energy channels called meridians. When the Qi becomes excessive, deficient, or the flow of Qi is blocked and becomes stuck then disease and illness occurs. By inserting fine needles along the body's meridians, the normal flow of Qi can be encouraged to promote healing.

There is a very important ancient saying in Chinese Medicine:

"If there is pain, there is no free flow;

If there is free flow, there is no pain"

This means that pain arises from the blockage of Qi and/or blood in the meridians, so by releasing this with acupuncture, pain can be relieved.

Laser Acupuncture

Low level laser acupuncture is now available as a needle-free option, especially for children and those who are needle sensitive. This non-invasive technique employs the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, stimulating acupuncture points with a cold, low level laser. 

Chinese Herbal Medicine


Cupping

Cupping is another ancient Chinese practice in which a glass or plastic cup is applied to th skin by suction. In some cases the cup is moved over the skin, releasing tight muscles like a form of massage. 

Cupping works by stimulating various acupuncture points, encouraging blood circulation, relaxing muscles and removing blood and Qi stagnation that can occur at sights of injury or in tight and tense muscles.  Cupping is also a great treatment for coughs, colds and bronchitis as well as insomnia, stress and tension, soft tissue injuries and pain syndromes.

Moxibustion

The herb Artemisia Vulgaris is used extensively in Chinese medicine in the practice known as moxibustion. This smouldering herb is placed near the skin to stimulate the flow of Qi and deeply warm different parts of the body. This is a great treatment for aches, pains and arthritis where symptoms are worse in cold weather. It is often used as a gentle treatment for children.

Dietary Therapy

The idea that food is medicine is an integral part of Chinese medicine and therefore nutritional advice is an important part of treatment to help correct specific imbalances in the body. Foods are classified according to there thermal effects and energetic properties and are recommended depending on your specific pattern of disharmony. TCM recognises the uniqueness of the individual and therefore there is no one diet that fits all people. In this way, food can become an important healing force, allowing your body to create an abundance of energy to promote self-healing and well being.
