Eastern acupuncture

Dr Fogarty is our registered acupuncturist that has been involved in research and clinical practice for several years. Perhaps unique to Acupuncture is its ever increasing evidence base formed by ongoing and significant scientific study around the world.

As a non invasive and drugless form of medicine, Acupuncture provides an important means of supporting and improving health for many people and has shown capacity to positively impact a large number of diseases and disorders.

The human body can be likened to a highly complex electrical circuit. Like any electrical
circuit, it must be kept in good working order if it is to function effectively. If the human
circuit breaks down the result can often be illness.

The body’s energy or ‘Qi’ (Chi) flows through the organs and tissues of the body via ‘meridians’. These meridians were mapped out by the ancient Chinese through observation over thousands of years. There are over 500 acupuncture points along these meridians. Stimulating the appropriate points with needles can ‘normalise’ the quality and quantity of energy (Qi) and fluids. The treatment may be enhanced by heat (Moxibustion or heat lamps), suction cups or electro-stimulation.
