Shen Adelaide Chinese Acupuncture Adelaide Clinic

Acupuncture is just one of many techniques we utilise to bring people back to the best possible version of themselves. Here at Shen Adelaide Chinese Medicine clinic, our job is to promote optimal health by looking at the whole person and discerning the pattern of imbalance revealed by their symptoms. The Chinese Acupuncture doctor examines the qualities of the pulse, the condition and colour of the tongue and the nature and location of heat and cold, dampness, dryness and pain. All of these reveal the patient's internal condition. Through the combination of Traditional Chinese acupuncture, acupressure and Chinese herbal medicine, the internal organs can be tonified, environmental factors are brought into balance and the circulation of Qi and Blood is enhanced. In practice, this means that Chinese Medicine acupuncture can bring distinct improvement or complete resolution to many human conditions. Some conditions can be alleviated in as little as one or two sessions. Chronic or severe conditions usually require a series of treatments for effective results. And keep in mind that the most common side effects of acupuncture are deep relaxation, emotional equanimity and mental clarity!

About Acupuncture

The art of acupuncture originally developed in ancient China and spread to Japan and Korea (6th century), Vietnam (8th century) and eventually to Europe (16th century). It also has a long history in Tibet.   The 21st century has seen a massive dissemination of acupuncture knowledge and experience throughout the world. This has naturally lead to a vast array of theories and practices as the simple art of penetrating the human body with fine needles comes into contact with modern science.     Modern scientific research confirms that acupuncture:
            • has an anti-inflammatory effect (1) (2)
            • enhances immunity and cellular function (3) (4)
            • enhances blood circulation (5) (6)
            • generates higher levels of oxygenation and nutrition to cells and tissues (5) (6)
            • promotes more efficient elimination of carbon dioxide and reduces acidity (5) (6)
            • produces natural pain relief (7) (8)
            • enhances muscular relaxation (9)
