Australian Acupuncture Practitioners DirectoryAcupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) where thin metal needles are used to unblock pressure points on the human body. While you might see it associated with Asian, Eastern, Oriental, Korean or Japanese alternative medicine, the Chinese have been the key developers of this treatment system based on qi, meridians and pressure points. Experts might be identified as acupuncturists, registered acupuncturists, holistic practitioners, alternative medicine practitioners, Chinese medicine practitioners, registered Chinese herbalists, herbalists, naturopathic practitioners, qualified Bowen therapists, trained Reiki practitioners, chiropractors, spiritualists or massage therapists. The Chinese believe that illness is caused by blockages in your “qi” (also known as “chi”) energy flow due to disharmony. Acupuncture needles burst these malignant bubbles, delivering analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Acupuncture might have originated in China circa 100 B.C. with the Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine, called "Huangdi Neijing". Massage therapists also might offer moxibustion, cupping, acupressure, basalt stones, aromatherapy, herbal medicine, massage, saunas, Reiki, ear candling, Bowen therapy, channel scrubbing, yoga and Akashic record reading. Sub disciplines include electroacupuncture, "Tui Na" bare-hands, fire needle, sonopuncture, cosmetic, laser and bee venom acupuncture.

Did you know that an estimated 1 in 10 adults in Australia used acupuncture in 2004? It is viewed as an alternative to Western prescriptions and medications. Primarily, this is used for musculoskeletal pain relief in back, joints, knees, neck, shoulders, hands and feet, along with the treatment of migraines, tennis elbow, nausea, sleep, gynecological, obstetric, fibromyalgia disorders and weight loss problems. The elderly might use acupuncture to manage osteoarthritis.

The 2000 Australian Law on Public Health (Skin Penetration) regulates this alternative medicine. The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) determines proper practices. Other associations include the National Herbalists Association (NHAA), Australian Naturopathic Association (ANPA), Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA), Australian Traditional Medicine Society, Federation of Chinese Medicine Acupuncture Societies of Australia, Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA) and Australian Association of Massage Therapists. An acupuncturist might have a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Biology, Bachelor of Health Science, Bachelor of Science in Anatomy, Bachelor of Science in Social Science, Diploma of Medial Herbalism, Degree in Health Science or Advanced Diploma of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

If you want pain relief, then acupuncture might be useful. It might be offered as a complement to other Western or Eastern treatments. At LocalBook Australia, you can find a wide range of acupuncture professionals. Trust your favourite Australian Business Directory: LocalBook.
