What is Acupuncture?

The ACUPUNCTURE Directory has listings for individual Practitioners, Clinics and Centres.

Listings are for both, Chinese and Japanese Medicine Practitioners. (Acupuncturists)


Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which originated in China over 5,000 years ago.
Acupuncture and it's treatment philosophies have become widely accepted.  It has been established as a respected natural holistic medicine modality.

Acupuncture is a form of natural healing which has the following major benefits:

It is a holistic treatment modality, always considering the whole body, mind and emotion.

It aids in drug-free pain relief  and  assists in prevention against diseases.

It's aim is to treat the cause as well as the symptoms.

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

The goal of acupuncture therapy is to establish a healthier state of body function and to increase the capacity to cope with stress.

The human body can be likened to a highly complex electrical circuit. Like any electrical circuit, it must be kept in good working order if it is to function effectively. If the human circuit breaks down the result is illness.

Each person has an energy circulation. To maintain good health, it is essential for the body's energy, as well as the blood, to circulate in a continuous and unobstructed manner. The pathways through which the energy flows are called meridians and these circulate through the organs and tissues of the body.

The energy which flows along the meridians is called Qi (Chi). These meridians were mapped out by the
ancient Chinese.

There are over 500 acupuncture points.

By stimulating these points with needles, the quality and quantity of energy (Qi) and fluids can be normalised or balanced. Often an area or acupuncture point is warmed and stimulated by a Chinese herb. This process is called Moxibustion. Suction cups and massage may also be utilised to enhance the treatment.

Is your Acupuncturist qualified?

Acupuncturists need to have undertaken a 4 – 5 year full time course at an accredited institution (whether national or international).

Accreditation with a specific association is the key to any practitioners validity.

Currently in Australia we have one leading organisation for the membership of fully qualified Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Practitioners, and it is recommended that a qualified practitioner is a member with the Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA)
