    What is Health Acupuncture?

    Acupuncture is a healthcare practice that involves the insertion of tiny sterilised needles, stimulating specific points on the body. The method of inserting ultra-fine needles into acupuncture points after a thorough diagnostic evaluation aims to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing responses.

    Acupuncture is based on the concept that the body has a sensitive energy network (Meridian System) that circulates energy (Qi) and harmoniously interconnects body functions and organs. These meridian flow gates are accessible through at least 350 acupuncture points in the body. Only very few of them are carefully selected according to the patient’s individual needs.

    History of Health TCM Acupuncture

    China has one of the world’s oldest medical systems. Health acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies date back at least 2,200 years. Chinese medicine’s earliest known written record is the ‘The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic’ from the 3rd century BCE.

    The holistic health care system helps to optimise the body’s self-regulation and healing capacity. This therapeutic method aims to prevent, address disease, and restore balance.

    Chinese medicine suggests that the deeper causes of illness and pain occur when the body’s energy is not flowing correctly. The energy disharmony factors may include emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury.

    The focus is on the individual who presents symptoms and signs of disease. The practice has advanced subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for centuries. Each patient is unique; two people with the same western diagnosis may receive different acupuncture treatment because the underlying causes of the disease may vary.

    Health TCM Acupuncture FAQs

    As well as performing acupuncture, dr. John Tsagaris may use other Chinese medicine techniques, which usually performed according to the patient’s individual needs and diagnostic evaluation.

    These methods include:

    • Tuina: Meridian bodywork acupressure techniques, stretching and other methods to prepare the body for acupuncture and bring the patient into deep relaxation and receptive state.
    • Moxibustion:  Heat is applied to an acupuncture point or meridian using moxa (a therapeutic herb) and/or heat lamps to warm and relax muscles and energy. The technique is especially effective in treating chronic problems, “deficient conditions”, weak constitutions or     rehabilitation. A thermal plaster may be suggested for a more prolonged effect.
    • Cupping: Special plastic cups are used on the skin, creating a vacuum seal to stimulate blood flow and clear stagnant energy and blood from stiff muscles.
    • Guasha: Vigorous rubbing of the skin increases blood flow and clears     stagnant energy.

    Acupuncture is a safe practice with minimal discomfort if any while the needles are placed on the body or when bodywork is performed. Acupuncture has very few side effects and any that do occur are usually mild and self-correcting.

    Dr john Tsagaris will advise the patient for any specific herbal or nutritional supplementation required, as well as discuss diet and life style chances that need to be addressed, taking into account the compatibility with current medication and activities of the patient. A treatment course is going to be suggested for ultimate results.
