Haberfield Health – Inner West Acupuncture Clinic
Why Choose Acupuncture?
Chinese Medicine is holistic & uses a unique system of diagnosis that allows us to see patterns of health within the body that other forms of medicine often cannot. Patterns that not only affect an organ or region of the body, but rather how it affects the whole body. Your entire system is addressed, providing a more complete treatment which also assists in preventing a re-occurrence of a condition.
What is involved?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body as a treatment for almost every disorder. These points are strong areas of influence along a channel which relate to internal organs & the areas of the body which they control. Inserting needles into these points results in powerful immune, hormonal, nervous & ant-inflammatory responses, allowing conditions of pain, disease, stress, injury & trauma to be treated effectively without the side effects commonly associated with medication.
