Chinese medicine has been documented more than 2000 years and evidence of it’s practice goes back much further. This documentation lists a wide range of symptoms and conditions that may be addressed using acupuncture and Chinese medicine. However, within the limited advertising guidelines no condition can be listed without having been extensively researched and had that research approved by AHPRA.
Our Clinic is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). This Australian government agency has very specific and strict advertising guidelines that prevent practitioners from making misleading claims.
The current research for acupuncture and Chinese medicine now totals over 12,000 systematic reviews, randomised control trials however, less than 10 conditions have been approved by AHPRA for Chinese medicine practitioners to mention in their advertising material.
