Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an important, efficacious element of the holistic approach to health care offered at Earth & Sky Natural Therapies.

By stimulating the body’s various systems and restoring optimal function, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese approach to health, which is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe and body in terms of two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. However, when energy becomes blocked, this can lead to pain, loss of function and other pathologies. Acupuncture aims to optimise the flow of yin and yang forces and restore balance. 

Modern research has demonstrated the effect of acupuncture on the body’s nervous, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, and digestive systems. Acupuncture may be used to treat a variety of conditions, including: musculoskeletal pain; digestive disorders; sleep problems; and immune deficiencies. Case-controlled clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can effectively used to treat: hay fever; depression, facial pain (including TMJ syndrome); headache; hyper- and hypo-tension; induction of labour; knee pain; lower back pain; morning sickness; nausea and vomiting; irritable bowel syndrome; neck pain; post-operative pain; osteoarthritis; sciatica; sprain; stroke; and tennis elbow.

With over 12 years of clinical acupuncture experience, Shane is constantly inspired by its efficacy across the wide range of conditions presenting to his clinic.
