Menstrual problems are oh-so common these days that it’s become ‘normal’ to experience them. But the truth is that it’s not normal to experience significant problems. Period problems include irregular periods, excessive or scant bleeding, pain and cramps, clotting, fatigue, back pain and pre-menstrual symptoms including bloating and irritability. They can all make for a miserable time each month. In fact one of our patients said: ‘how can something that’s meant to be so wonderful be so awful!’. Chinese medicine can really make a difference to your monthly cycle.
Cosmetic (also known as facial) acupuncture is a whole-of-body approach to helping you feel and look your best. It is an alternative to more harsh chemical or surgical-based procedures. It’s also very relaxing. One patient said: ‘I walk in and I float out!’. If you would like to know how cosmetic acupuncture may help you, you can book a Free 15 Minute Health Consultation with Melbourne Acupuncturist Dr Sandra.
Perhaps what we are best known for is helping people with complex, unexplained or stubborn health issues return to better well being. Sometimes your body gets into such a ‘mess’ it cannot recover without help. Chinese medicine looks at your health in an entirely different way to Western medicine. Your Acupuncturist will diagnose you using very different techniques and we treat you using very different tools in acupuncture, herbs and diet. If you have never considered Chinese medicine, we may provide the very answers you’ve been looking for. And you can book a free assessment where one of our Acupuncturists will assess you and advise if we believe we can help you.
Chinese acupuncture has been in use for thousands of years to treat a wide range of health problems. Acupuncturists insert very fine needles into different areas to trigger your body’s natural healing mechanisms. One of the main responses is substantially improved blood flow to the area of pain or the organ that is not functioning well. With good blood flow comes good health. By returning your body back to normal function, an acupuncturist aims to get your body to ‘stand on its own two feet’ again so it can look after itself and keep you healthy.
Chinese herbal medicine is a powerful branch of Chinese medicine. There are thousands of herbs at our disposal to create tailored herbal formulas for just what you need. Specific herbs do specific things in the body like improving blood flow, reducing pain, stopping bloating, improving organ function, etc…
One of the best thing about herbs is that we can treat both your symptoms and the root cause of those symptoms at the same time. And unlike with pharmaceutical drugs, herbs should not result in any side effect. We can do great things when we combine herbs with acupuncture!
What you eat can make a big difference to your health. Chinese medicine looks at foods differently. We look at how foods affect the temperatures in your body as well as what the flavours do to you. The different flavours of sweet, salty, sour, bitter and pungent all act differently on your body. So there will be some foods that help you and some that cause you trouble. We’ll advise you about diet at your appointment.
Chinese pulse diagnosis is the mainstay of how we diagnose health issues and track improvements. Your Acupuncturist will read the subtleties of blood flow in the radial artery on your wrist to be able to determine a great deal of what’s going on with your health and what is likely causing you health problems. During a Free Health Breakthrough Consultation, we’ll read your pulses and you might be surprised what we tell you from it! Pulse diagnosis is unique to Chinese medicine and is ancient technique for modern health problems for people living in Melbourne.
Your body is a marvelous machine capable of keeping you pain free and in good health. But often things go wrong resulting in health problems. Western medicine is great at dealing with symptoms, but it may not deal with the root cause of many health problems.
The result is that you may need to permanently stay on medications (along with any side-effects and long-term damage) to manage symptoms or worse still, ‘you may just have to live with it’. But the answer is often to return your body’s natural pain-relief and health mechanisms back on so your body it can fix and maintain itself.
We use acupuncture and Chinese herbs to treat the Chinese medicine root cause of problems.
Chinese pulse diagnosis is at the heart of how we diagnose you. Accurate pulse diagnosis leads to a more accurate overall diagnosis of what’s causing your health issue. This is the key to more efficient and effective treatments.
