Acupuncture is a natural form of healing and drug-free pain relief. This ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine technique, has origins that can be traced back over 2000 years. It is one of the longest established healthcare systems, a legacy that writes it’s own testimonial.

Core Principle

At the heart of the practice of Acupuncture is the belief that Qi (life force energy) flows through the body, following meridians (channels). The body itself and its functions are manifestations of Qi, and the flow of Qi results in a balance of wellbeing, often referred to as harmony.

When the flow of Qi is interrupted – be it through stress, disease or illness – it impacts on the health and wellness of the body, resulting in signs and symptoms that reflect the internal disharmony.

As a registered acupuncturist, Dr Danielle Slade assesses the level of physical dysfunction through observation of signs, discussion of symptoms and determining the background health history.

When the flow of Qi is interrupted - be it through stress, disease or illness - it impacts on the health and wellness of the body, resulting in signs and symptoms that reflect the internal disharmony.

How it works

The technique of acupuncture involves clearing the obstructed meridian lines, encouraging the flow of Qi to restore the body’s natural balance.

To clear blockages in the meridian channels Dr Dan inserts sterile needles at specific meridian line points – know as acupuncture points.

The treatment experience is restful and pain free. Once positioned comfortably on the treatment table, Dr Dan applies high quality, superfine and very smooth sterile needles swiftly into strategic points across the body, after a period of rest the needles are removed.

Other complimentary techniques are also employed to unblock Qi including moxibustion, cupping / Gui shu and massage.
