Our Customized Therapies
Acute and chronic pain syndromes have an enormous impact on individuals and can affect their lifestyle in many ways and that of their family. In Australia, chronic pain is the third most common healthcare problem behind heart disease and cancer. Long lasting pain often creates a chronic pain cycle – pain, lack of exercise, limited physical activity, chronic fatigue, stress, depression, muscle tension, tightness, cramping, sensitive nerves, and again – pain.
Stress, Anxiety + Mood Disorders
Stress, anxiety, depression and mood disorders (worry, fear, sadness, anger) are more than “feeling upset”. Just as migraine sufferers get righteously indignant when someone claims to be a fellow sufferer but can still get to work, eat and stand the daylight, so anxiety sufferers know that they bear only the slightest resemblance to people who feel a bit nervous or have “butterflies in the tummy”. Clinical anxiety, depression or obsessive worry can be crippling afflictions which sometimes defy all of the medications and talking therapies that someone can throw at it.
All our practitioners are highly qualified Acupuncturists and Doctors of Chinese Medicine and have many years of experience in improving symptoms while also focusing on long-term outcomes.
