FAQ

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works using a number of different mechanisms; firstly, it stimulates the release of powerful painkilling and anti-inflammatory substances from the brain.  It also changes the way the body responds to pain.  Acupuncture promotes homeostasis or a return to a state of balance, this is why we say acupuncture stimulates the body to heal itself.  Acupuncture treatment has influence over the nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine and immune systems of the body.

What can I expect in my first session?

If you are attending for pain or injury we will perform the EXSTORE physical assessment system, as developed by Dr. Anthony Lombardi, to discover which muscles are not firing correctly and are causing dysfunctional movement patterns resulting in pain, inflammation and decreased mobility.  We then treat the relevant motor points to restore the function in the muscles- an improvement in strength and a decrease in pain will often be seen in session.

For internal conditions we take a detailed history and form a treatment plan.
