How Chinese Medicine Works

Ever wondered what makes the laugh so great? When we chuckle, our bodies release natural pain-killers called endorphins into the bloodstream, leaving us feeling positive, relaxed and fantastic.

Acupuncture works in the same way. By inserting very fine needles into key points, we manipulate the ‘Qi’- or life force that runs through the body. This can be seen in a modern way as stimulating the nervous system to help the body heal itself.

Offered through the trusted Sydenham Chinese Medicine Clinic, Acupuncture promotes various health benefits and gives a general boost in the feeling of wellbeing.

The Acupuncturist will spend time with the client to run a complete health assessment and consultation before the commencement of the treatment.

Once the needles have been inserted, our clients will relax for 20-30 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 and nausea, among others.

At Sydenham Chinese Medicine Clinic our Acupuncturist is registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (under AHPRA) and holds provider numbers with most private health insurance companies. Only have Acupuncture from an AHPRA registered practitioner and don’t settle for anyone less!
