Acupuncture activates specific points on the body which improve circulation, organ function and neural communication over time leading to a pain free body in optimum health.
These points lie on channels which run from your extremities and connect with your organs internally. It is through these channels that we can influence the muscles and joints over which they run (helping you with pain, tension and inflammation), as well as stimulate and regulate the function of the organs to which they connect (helping you with internal conditions). Accordingly, acupuncture is used as an effective treatment for illness, injury, pain and tension — see Things we treat.
Acupuncture’s ability to optimise the body’s physiological efficiency allows it to be used as preventive medicine. It keeps your body supple, helping prevent injury. Acupuncture also works on the central nervous system to regulate hormone secretion and improve blood circulation which reduces inflammation, improves cellular respiration and repair. Almost all diseases are caused by inflammation, oxidative stress, and poor blood circulation. Acupuncture helps your physiological systems work efficiently so it is more effective at warding off infections, adjusting to changes in its environment and buffering the disruptive effects of stress. In this way acupuncture increases your resilience to stress, illness and injury and leaves you with a feeling of vitality and mental clarity.
All acupuncturists that practice at Wholistic Natural Medicine also practice traditional Chinese herbal medicine.

Fertility Acupuncture Sydney
Many people ask us; How do we help women who are trying to get pregnant with fertility acupuncture in Sydney? The answer is, we get your body sufficiently healthy and balanced so that it is prepared to support itself and a new developing life. In fact our treatment works in the same way Chinese Medicine helps with all kinds of sub optimal conditions. It helps balance the body.
“What does that mean?! I keep hearing about balancing the body but it doesn’t mean much to me!”. Some respond.
There are countless examples of chemical balances in the body which must be maintained in order for normal health. The more well known examples are Glucose Concentration; sugar balance. While fluid volumes are kept in check via antidiuretic hormone and aldosterone. The list goes on.
Chinese Medicine practitioners are trained to recognize and diagnose other balances which must be kept in place. For example, women who are trying to increase their fertility need to first address their menstrual cycle health. It’s way more complicated than just how closely you adhere to a 28 day cycle. Our fertility acupuncturists consider the length in days and temperature of your body during the luteal, ovulation and follicular phase of your cycle and prescribe acupuncture points and herbs accordingly.
Now the menstrual cycle is just one system which Chinese Medicine practitioners consider. We also look at how well blood and fluids circulate through your body and know what signs and symptoms to look for. In fact we studied for years to be able to recognise which systems in your body need attention.
