Acupuncture Newtown Geelong
The human body is an amazing self-healing structure, with an innate ability to immediately begin quietly repairing the damage the moment we injure ourselves… in fact, we often don’t even notice it happening!
However, in times of illness, our body’s ability to self-heal can be thrown off track. There are a number of things that can affect this automatic process, including chronic stress, dehydration and poor nutrition. While medication is popularly used to ‘fix’ a problem, it often treats a symptom and not the root cause.
Acupuncture is a simple and relatively painless way to open your body up to its natural self-healing abilities, either during a period of illness or on a regular basis to promote ongoing wellness.
Using fine needles, our qualified acupuncturist Nicholas Conte will stimulate your body’s healing processes and restore balance and equilibrium to your wellbeing. Acupuncture needles are tapped into one of the Hundreds of physiological points on the body, connecting a network of meridians, allowing a flow of energy to resolve pain and injury and restore balance.
Derived from traditional Chinese medicine and used for over 3000 years, trained acupuncturists are specialists in this system that promotes health, prevents illness and treats common medical conditions. Nicholas has also completed advanced training that allows him to treat a variety of ailments mostly by using acupuncture points along the arms and legs. These methods of treatment generally mean that there is no requirement to disrobe.
Nicholas uses acupuncture to address:
- Musculoskeletal issues
- Digestive problems
- Anxiety and stress
- Headaches and migraines
- Chronic and acute pain
- Infertility issues
- Pregnancy issues
At your first visit, Nicholas will create an acupuncture diagnosis and treatment plan that takes into consideration your medical history, lifestyle, diet and emotional state, allowing us to customise your treatment accordingly.
We will also explain the acupuncture treatment to you and address any fears or doubts you might have about using acupuncture for the first time. For those that are afraid of needles, a pain-free medical laser can be used to achieve similar results.
