Ever wondered what makes the feeling of a good laugh so great? When we giggle, our bodies release a natural pain-killer called endorphin into our blood stream, leaving us feeling uplifted and relaxed - Acupuncture works in the same way.
Acupuncture prevents or treats a variety of medical ailments, including pain, by realigning a harmonic balance of your "yin" and "yang". Through inserting very fine needles into key points on the body, we manipulate the ‘Qi’ – or Life Force – that runs through the body. This is considered as the modern way of stimulating the nervous system to help the body heal itself. Acupuncture promotes a variety of health benefits and positively lifts the feeling of well-being.
During your hour long appointment, our acupuncture practitioner will discuss your general health and following a consultation, will relax your body with remedial massage techniques before the commencement of acupuncture treatment. Once the needles have been inserted, you relax for 20 to 30 minutes in our comfortable treatment room to allow the pressure points to be fully stimulated.
The World Health Organisation agrees that Acupuncture can effectively treat a range of ailments including hay fever, period pain, headaches, sciatica, hypertension (high blood pressure) and nausea, among others.
At Total Body Wellness our Acupuncturist is registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (under CMBA and AHPRA), and holds provider numbers with most private health insurance companies.
Only receive Acupuncture from an AHPRA registered Acupuncturist! Don’t compromise on anything less.
