Holistic Approach To Treatment

Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese holistic treatment of pain and illness, where the practitioner diagnoses and addresses imbalances in a persons internal energy tracks or acu-points, as a result of stresses or injury.

The discipline is based on the traditional Chinese philosophy that there are energetic channels that exist within the body. These channels run through internal organs and when blocked or distorted from injury or emotional stress the energy, or qi, cannot flow smoothly.

Think of a disruption to this energy flow as a tree that falls across a river. The tree must be removed in order for the river to flow smoothly again, just like the energy to all organs.



Directly Addressing Pain, Discomfort & Emotional Stresses

The Selph Acupuncturist will seek to address the pain or discomfort within the body of a patient by addressing the imbalance of energy within the body, and restore the internal energy channels by inserting sterilised needles into the meridian points of the body.

By restoring the energy flow and thus clearing the meridian pathways, acupuncture calms the energy and allows for the smooth release of pathways in the body. Acupuncture can assist in a number of physical and emotional health conditions such as:

  • Muscle & Structural pain and injuries
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Infertility
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Weight loss
  • Gut and nutritional issues
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Menopause


Collaborative Approach

As with all treatments at Selph Health Studios, your Acupuncturist will be able to see and discuss your past and current treatments with any other of the Selph practitioners you are being treated by. This ensures that your treatments and wellness plan are both cohesive and collaborative across all disciplines.
