I’ve noticed many times in my acupuncture clinic that when I start treating someone for a condition, such as low back pain, clients often report unusual side-effects! Three come to mind immediately:
1) Improved sleep
2) Lighter mood
3) Less heartburn
The reason for this is that acupuncture, while reducing pain one particular area, also affects other parts of the body because all organs and systems of the body are connected, either by blood vessels, nerves, lymphatic system or connective tissue…in Chinese medicine, simply by meridians. These ‘pathways of energy’ circulate the whole body, and the needles unblock or calm the flow, thereby instructing the systems of the body to function well together. This brings the body towards equilibrium (in western terms it’s called homeostasis) and many niggling symptoms can miraculously disappear – inner balance!

Clients come from all over the Macarthur, including Douglas Park, Picton, Harrington Park, Appin and of course Campbelltown. So, if you have a health issue that’s been bothering you for a while, try acupuncture and feel a whole lot better!
