The diagnosis process

It is extremely important that before any treatment the acupuncturist performs an accurate diagnosis of the patient's condition.

We use Classical Chinese Medicine theories to diagnose sources of disharmony. To make a diagnosis, we gather information from:

  • Questions and patient/therapist interaction;
  • Careful observation of the patient;
  • Wrist pulse diagnosis; and
  • Tongue inspection.

These techniques give the practitioner enough information to diagnose problems, interpret stagnant or excessive Qi and blood flow deficiencies with their corresponding five-element and yin-yang imbalances.

The therapist then makes a treatment plan based on the information gathered and their knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Acupuncture treatments

Acupuncture is a therapeutic and natural healing method. It works by stimulating specific meridian points to promote natural healing and to improve whole body functions.

Acupuncture is a relaxing and peaceful treatment.

Styles of Acupuncture that we may use include techniques from:

  • Five Elements acupuncture;
  • Balance acupuncture;
  • Japanese acupuncture;
  • Tong's style Fire needles;
  • Ear acupuncture; and
  • Electrical Acupuncture

AcuGraph Meridian Analysis

The AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging system is a computerized tool used to analyse and document the energy status of the acupuncture meridians.

It allows the therapist to measure and analyse the energy level of each acupuncture meridian. With this information, the therapist can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible.

AcuGraph is the premiere measurement tool of its type on the market today. It provides a fast and efficient exam, gives the most advanced treatment options, and allows your acupuncturist to easily track your progress.

Chinese Herbs

Apart from Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine is perhaps the most widely used Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment modality. Used together, acupuncture and Herbal medicine can be extremely effective for the treatment of illness and in the optimization of health and prevention of disease.

Different herbs have different properties and can balance particular parts of the body. Some of the herbs, such as ginger, garlic and cinnamon you may find in your kitchen, while others such as chrysanthemum are more likely to be found in your garden. There are also many you will might not recognise.

We can prescribe a herbal formula that is precisely designed for your condition at any given time. We supply herbs in pill form, granules and raw, which can then be cooked and prepared at home.

Chinese Herbal Medicine won't build up in your body or produce harmful side effects like many prescription drugs and synthetic supplements.

Chinese Herbal Medicine are less likely to build up harmful side effects associated with many prescription drugs or synthetic supplements.

Cupping treatments

Cupping is a lesser-known treatment (outside of Asia) that is also part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can be used by itself or in conjunction with an acupuncture treatment.

Suction is created in small glass cups by placing them over a small flame, then placing the cup on the skin. Flames are never used near the skin, but rather are a means to create the heat that creates a vacuum within the cup.

The cups are left in place for about five to ten minutes whilte the patient relaxes. After removing the cups, you may see some red or purple circular markings on your skin. This is an indication of the muscle pain or stiffness that is being treated, or might be caused by external cold, heat, or toxins in your body. The colour normally fades away after 3 to 6 days.

Cupping is one of the best therapies to relief muscle pain and stiffness by promoting circulation.

We use different cupping techniques for different treatment purposes.

Cupping can release toxins, clear blockages, and refresh blood vessels. It is also beneficial for the lungs and can clear congestion from a common cold, or help to control asthma. It is also useful for reducing fat and cellulite.

Moxibustion treatments

Burning herbs to promote universal Yang energy is widely use in Chinese traditional medical treatments.

Moxibustion can be used directly on the body, or attached to acupuncture needles to create medically therapeutic heat effect. It is good for promoting blood circulation, building up the immune system, and is very effective in moving excess and tonifying a weak or deficiency constitution.

We have used this method extensively in our first branch in Auburn for many difficult conditions, including treatment of women’s fertility problems.

Tui Na (Chinese Massage)

Tui Na combined with acupuncture is the preferred service chose by many clients, especially if the patient has particular pain.

Tui Na is not just for comfort and relaxation. It can also help the therapist to identify muscles problem before they insert needles. Tui Na also includes stretching techniques, and helps relax the client while needles are inserted.

How does acupuncture work?

All parts of the human body as linked via a network of what we call meridians. It is just like a computer network in that you cannot see them, but through a network computers can talk each other. When the Qi (energy source) flow in a meridian is disordered, it will manifest as sickness. Acupuncture uses a sterilised fine needle inserted in certain points along these meridians to rebalance and optimise the Qi flow. The person then returns to health.

Is acupuncture painful?

An acupuncture needle is very fine (0.25mm) compared to an injection needle (at least 2.8mm). With our experienced acupuncture doctors you normally feel no pain, or if in a sensitive part of the body you may a feel a sensation almost like a mosquito bite. There is usually a specific sensation of heaviness, tingling or numbness that indicates the acupuncture needles are working in your body. In general you will feel more relaxed after a needle is inserted.

How does cupping work?

Cupping uses negative pressure to promote blood circulation as well as promoting body detoxification. It is especially useful for external conditions. Examples include flu or a cold that causes body aches, physical stress from over-working or over-exercise, or muscle pain from mental stress working in air-condition environment. Cupping is also good for weight control.

We can also perform blood-letting with cups to obtain maximum result. This method is widely used as a part of acupuncture treatment.

Why use Chinese herbs?

We use Chinese herbs in more complex cases to enhance the acupuncture result, or if people have no time for acupuncture treatment, they can use herbs as often as they need. We normally give patients Chinese herbs in powder form (made specifically for the patient’s condition). Herbs can also be prescribed in tablet form for you convenience.

Chinese herbs work similarly to acupuncture. They work through the meridians into our organs. Chinese herbs are especially good for chronic conditions and deficiency conditions with patients of poor constitution.

What is ear acupuncture, and what is it good for?

This is a unique acupuncture method. The ear is a map or reflection of our whole body. It can help us diagnose as well as treat most problems. We can also use magnet pellets. They can be attached to specific ear points for you to self-stimulate at home.

Ear acupuncture is another microsystem that reflects our body map. As it is very close to our brain, it is very effective for neural, emotional and hormone related problems.

It is very good for weight control, quitting smoking, and assisting chronic conditions. It also very good in treating nerve related pain, especial sciatic pain.

What does pulse or tongue diagnosis achieve?

Pulse and tongue diagnosis are very important diagnostic methods in classical Chinese medicine. Chinese pulse diagnosis is different from a western medical pulse diagnosis. In Western medicine the pulse is only used for measuring your heart beat. In Chinese medicine the pulse can reflect whole body blood flow and the quality of the blood flow form the skin to internal organs.

From the pulse we can detect where there is a meridian blockage, and which organ has potential a problem. It helps us to formed treatment strategy.

Tongue diagnosis gives us an idea of your constitution and the depth of the problem.

More about Acupuncture & TCM.

Acupuncture is a unique and complete medical treatment used in China for many centuries (and continues to be used today). It is simply the use of fine needles targeting specific points on your body that can bring you back from illness to health.

Classical acupuncture principles are based on the belief that our body is a small universal that lives within our bigger universe. We are part of nature, and our health is affected by natural changes and universal movement. When our individual constitution does not suit this change, or our lifestyle goes against the universal movement, we will become ill. In traditional Chinese medicine, we refer to this as blockages in your body circulation, or meridian.

Classical acupuncture and Chinese Herbal treatments are based on the theory of the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine, Yin and Yang, and the body’s micro-system. These theories guide the insertion of needles at different points and levels. The levels correspond to heaven, human and earth. The levels are selected according to the problem you bring as well as your spirit and body balance (Yin-Yang balance). It is a complete medical health system without involvement of western-style drugs. It is completely from nature.

The beauty of our Acupuncture treatment is that is not only effective to treat you when you are ill, but is also the best way for maintaining health before you get sick.

We encourage you have Acupuncture treatment when you encounter the very first signs of unwellness, even if a medical examinations might show nothing abnormal. For traditional Chinese medicine, this is the best time to start treatment. It is just like getting a car service - the human body need regular services too.

Of course if you already have problems that you would like treated, you should definitely come in to see us. When you see a doctor or your specialist, or have prolonged health issue that have not resolved, come in to discuss it with us. Try our classical acupuncture. We love the challenge.
