針灸 Zhenjiu – Acupuncture & Moxibustion

     Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body’s channels to regulate Qi (pronounced ‘Chi’) Energy’ flow. This in turn nourishes the body tissues and harmonises organ function. Moxibustion therapy involves warming these same points with a heated herbal preparation. The needles used at China Dragon are single-use disposable and made to the highest Australian Standards. Whilst acupuncture is not entirely painless, the discomfort is far less than an injection or other needling therapies.

     The first Chinese Medical manual, the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic from over 2000 years ago indicates Acupuncture and Moxibustion can be used to alleviate many acute and chronic Muscular-skeletal conditions (amongst others) including –

  • headache
  • stiff neck
  • lower back & hip pain
  • shoulder problems
  • elbow pain
  • wrist conditions
  • knee and foot injuries
