Aches Pain and Injuries

Studies suggest acupuncture can increase the body’s circulation, range of motion and accelerate healing time due to its ability to balance the neurological and cardiovascular systems.

It also assists in maintaining functional and structural alignment, reducing the risk of further injury, and increasing strength and endurance.

Relax, Rewind Reset

Acupuncture seeks to balance the internal energies of the body which may be disrupted through both internal and external factors. Internal factors may include: stress, injury, and emotions. Emotions can create and alter physiological responses which include an increase in heart rate, muscle coordination and timing, respiration rate, and muscle tension and fatigue. Acupuncture relaxes and calms the mind and body.

About Richard

I have been a resident of the Sunshine Coast for over 35 years. I had my my first acupuncture treatment in the early 1980’s as a 12 year old.

Since then acupuncture has been part of my health regime for both sporting injuries and health maintenance. I enjoy all sports and have been involved in many sports and clubs on the Sunshine Coast. My focus is now on assisting others achieve better physical, emotional and spiritual health. I use acupuncture to assist in treatment of chronic and acute conditions and in preventing illness by maintaining normal energy flows throughout the body.

I regard myself fortunate along with many other acupuncturists to have studied under the world famous Dr Tan to learn his Balance Method and Robert Doane's Distal Needling Acupuncture (DNA). I now use Distal Needling Acupuncture almost exclusively. I have elected to pursue these methods due to the results that can be achieved and their very broad application to many and varied conditions.

The Balance Method and DNA Application.

  • Involves never needling the injured or painful area
  • Uses distal points on the body (mainly Limbs) which means most sessions you remain fully clothed.
  • Can achieve instant results. Pain can be relieve in seconds to minutes after insertion of a needle .
