Acupuncture is a medical practice that involves the careful stimulation of distinct points on the body, usually using small needles to penetrate the skin. It is a complementary method of therapy, which when used alongside other means of treatment can help both alleviate pain and provide relief for a variety of health conditions. At Central Sydney Osteopathy, treatment using acupuncture is available for Summer Hills residents at our friendly and well-established clinic based in Stanmore.
While the history of acupuncture goes back many centuries in Asia, the practice has evolved significantly with its introduction in Australia and other Western nations. Within a modern medical context, acupuncture has demonstrated many potential positive effects for patients dealing with conditions such as pain or nausea. Some research suggests it may also be useful for treating additional symptoms, such as depression or relieving overall discomfort and digestive issues in cancer patients.
Acupuncture is also considered to be safe and is minimally invasive when administered correctly, such as within a clinical setting like Central Sydney Osteopathy. Our highly-trained staff can provide acupuncture for Summer Hills residents and others in the inner west suburbs.
At Central Sydney Osteopathy, we are committed to providing you with safe, adequate care and sound, evidence-based medical advice regarding acupuncture and other forms of treatment. If you are uncertain whether receiving acupuncture at our Summer Hills area clinic is right for you, feel free to give our friendly and knowledgeable staff a call to find out more or to schedule a consultation.
