Many people seek out Acupuncture after they have tried everything else. Often they have tried other Allied Health modalities, but don’t feel that the problem is quite resolving as they would have hoped.


In Chinese Medicine, the emotions are the prime causes of deficiency and excess. According to TCM theory (Traditional Chinese Medicine), deficiency drains the bodies energy levels and can deplete organ function, which is referred to as Yin or Yang Qi. Acupuncture is a holistic medicine thousands of years old, but constantly evolving. It looks at the physical body and also the emotional aspects.


If there is too much energy in the body, which is often the case in our developed nations, we can get excess, which usually relates to an over abundance of Yang Qi, which might manifest in the Liver as Liver Yang rising, causing headaches or Migraines.


By coming to an Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner, you are getting a Health Professional that knows the theories related to Physiological Balance who are arguably the most skilled practitoners in the specific field of applying Acupuncture techniques. There are literally hundreds of methodologies, techniques and applications, of which Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist have a full awareness of.


Chad has a particular interest in Pain Related musculoskeletal disorders. He uses Chinese Medicine Diagnostics to assess the pattern of dysharmony and channel pathology, using Acupuncture and other techniques to modify, move and unblock “Qi” (oxygen/energy) and “Xue” (Blood) through the “Jing Luo” (Meridians).


The Jing Luo or Meridians are just alternative terms for which could be likened to the fascia networks. If you imagine rolling out one long piece of cling wrap from the top of your head, down the back of your neck and body to your feet. This would be one Fascia network, called “the Back Line”, which wraps the muscles and provides a framework and nourishment to muscles and body structure. However the Jing Luo also relates to the blood vessels and capilary networks within pre determined pathways running vertically on the body.


Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a physiological medicine that has been clinically relevant since it’s inception thousands of years ago, and continues to be modernised and updated up until this day, whilst keeping true to it’s ancient ties.
