The style of acupuncture we practice is gentle and focuses on providing a deep sense of relaxation which quietens the busy mind and allows the body to heal, flow and function.

Originating in China approximately 3,500 years ago, acupuncture is an ancient modality which now has science to support its effectiveness. Practitioners also utilise mindfulness-based medicine as the foundation of each treatment, with the aim of educating and teaching techniques to better improve physical and mental health.

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

What is Acupuncture?

 

Acupuncture is an ancient healing system utilised throughout the world for over 3,500 years. Traditional Chinese medicine is based on the treatment of specific acupuncture points located on energy pathways called meridians throughout the body.

How does it work? 

Energy, or ‘Qi’ flows along the meridians to promote optimal function and balance in the body. Internal and external influences can block or damage this flow resulting in pain, disease or emotional imbalance. Each acupuncture point has a specific action and is carefully selected as part of your individually tailored treatment plan to remove blockages, increase circulation and stimulate the nervous system. By regulating the Qi, balance is achieved, ultimately restoring the function and health of the body, mind and soul.

Does it hurt?

Extremely fine needles are placed on the acupuncture points located on the meridian channels that run throughout the body. Commonly the needles aren’t felt at all. Instead, an experience of feeling light and deeply relaxed during treatments with an enhanced feeling of well-being are experienced following treatment. At Life Synergy we often incorporate body work or Chinese massage as an adjunct to acupuncture to enhance the treatment effects by stimulating circulation and allowing the body to relax optimally.
