What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of inserting fine, sterile needles into known acupuncture points on the human body. The role of acupuncture is to stimulate the body’s vital energy (also known as qi or ch’i) that flows through the meridians and to clear energy blockages which leads to health benefits.
Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is considered relatively safe – provided a registered acupuncturist delivers the treatment. Like any medical treatment or therapy, acupuncture carries some minor risk. Occasionally, acupuncture treatment can result in bruising, minor bleeding, and soreness.
As a registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA), Cyrus ensures that your acupuncture treatment is as trouble-free as possible and that any unlikely complications are dealt with quickly and professionally.
