Different Types Of Acupuncture Techniques


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine. It is based on the principle that pains and aches occur, when the flow of life energy is blocked. The acupuncture therapist inserts thin needles in specific acupuncture points to remove blockages and restore the flow of life energy, which helps to relax the body and relieves pain. The body has more than 1000 acupuncture points which are associated with different organs of the human body.

Acupuncture is proven to cure many health conditions such as anxiety, arthritis, chronic pain such as neck pain, back pain and headache, insomnia, migraines, depression, stress and anxiety, sciatica and many other conditions. Facial acupuncture or cosmetic acupuncture is performed to improve the shine and glow of the skin.  Patients suffering with these conditions and want to try acupuncture in Bankstown, can visit holistic health clinics which offer traditional methods of healing.

Apart from inserting thin needles in the acupuncture pints, the therapist can also use the following treatment techniques to improve the efficiency of the treatment.

  • Moxibustion

This technique is also known as “moxa.” The therapist uses heated sticks made from dried herbs to warm the acupuncture needles. This process stimulates the acupuncture points and leads to effective healing.

  • Cupping

Cupping is used by acupuncturists to relieve the stagnation of blood and remove blockages in the flow of life energy or “qi”. Heated glass cups are placed on certain points of the skin to create suction, which is believed to remove stagnation of blood.

  • Herbs

A number of Chinese herbs are used to promote quick healing for patients. They can be taken in the form of herbal teas, pills or capsules, depending on the condition of the patient.






  • Electro acupuncture

This process uses weak electrical current to stimulate the acupuncture points. The needles are attached to an electrical device that provides weak current to the needles.

  • Laser acupuncture

Laser acupuncture is a modern form, which is said to stimulate the acupuncture points in the human body without the use of needles.

  • Ear acupuncture

It is also called as auricular acupuncture and is used to cure addiction, promote weight loss and treat anxiety.
