Acupuncture - Without needles

If the idea of needles makes you shy away, but you would still like to receive the benefits of Acupuncture - we can offer you a just as effective alternative!

Traditional Chinese Medicine has adapted with technology and the body's acupuncture points can just as easily and effectively be stimulated by applying an electrical pulse to the Acupuncture points instead of using a needle. This may be done in consultation with you, if your Practitioner deems it necessary, using a device approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia.

Acupuncture is based on 14 meridians and more than 400 acupuncture points in the body. These points correspond to different organs, physiological processes, hormones, muscles, nerves and so on.

So if you prefer, the very fine, disposable needles can be swapped for electrical pulses to stimulate the energy flow or 'qi' (sometimes written as 'chi') along the meridians to bring about balance and harmony among your body systems.

This is just a different way to do the same thing which traditionally is done using needles (Acupuncture using disposable needles).

Or you may prefer our Acupressure Massage, which uses finger point pressure over the acupuncture points to also effect healthy change in your body's functioning and release for chronically tight or strained muscles.
