What does an acupuncturist do?

A trained Acupuncturist has an in-depth knowledge of human physiology based on Channel Theory and the hundreds of acupuncture points located across the body’s Meridians.

As each person’s body and health concerns are unique, the treatment programs developed by Acumend are tailored to recognise and focus on those signs and symptoms.  Treatment applications and programs are flexible, individually based and can be adapted according to those symptoms experienced. 

Depending on our findings, other Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments may be incorporated such as Herbal Formula, Tui Na (massage), Gua Sha (Channel Scrubbing), Cupping, Qigong and TCM specific dietary advice.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting fine single use needles into specific acupoints around the body to elicit a response that may be local or related to the treatment area.

Why acupuncture?

Acupuncture is unique as it is based on foundations and principles developed in Traditional Chinese Medicine over thousands of years, focusing on the connection between the human body and its environment. 

This holistic approach takes into consideration the many factors that impact our health, seeking to establish a sense of harmony and balance within one’s environment, both internally and externally. 

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine seek to balance the flow of qi (energy) inside the body to reduce symptoms and promote wellness.
