Acupuncture in Brisbane

Are you too busy looking after everyone else and haven't got time to look after yourself?

An acupuncture treatment could be just what you need. Acupuncture is considered safe in the hands of a well-trained practitioner and has been found to be cost effective for some conditions. When you have Acupuncture treatments at Vibe you're always in safe hands.

At Vibe Natural Health in Brisbane, we combine Western and Eastern medical traditions in our fully integrated clinic. Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an ancient system of healing that is practiced worldwide as both a primary and complementary treatment for a wide range of conditions. According to the Acupuncture Evidence Project the highest level of scientific evidence is in:

  • Allergic rhinitis (perennial and seasonal)
  • Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV - with anti-emetics)
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Headache (tension-type and chronic)
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Migraine prophylaxis
  • Postoperative pain, nausea and vomiting

Further to these conditions, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) demonstrated Level I evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture for 117 conditions.

Acupuncture works by improving blood flow and circulation within the body, relaxing the nervous system and stimulating endogenous opioid receptors to provide an analgesic effect (pain relief). For these reasons it can assist in reducing inflammation and promoting the cascade of healing. Acupuncture can provide acute relief for pain conditions and encourage healing in chronic conditions.

The quality and quantity of research into acupuncture’s effectiveness is increasing. At Vibe Natural Health in Brisbane, we specialise in:

  • Pain Management
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Hay fever and immunity
  • Pregnancy Acupuncture
  • Labour and Birth Preparation
  • Recovery from Injury

If the condition you are seeking help for is not listed here, or on our conditions page, please call our friendly reception team on (07) 3366 7970.  We can organise a time for Juanita to call you back to discuss how traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture interprets your condition.

What to expect

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes acupuncture, Chinese dietary therapy, Chinese herbal medicine, exercise therapy such as tai chi and qi gong, cupping, moxibustion and oriental massage. It is a holistic form of health care where the focus is on the individual and the treatment is tailored to each person’s current state of health.

Acupuncture consultations involve taking a thorough case history, to get to the underlying cause of your health concern. Your consultation will include a treatment involving the insertion of fine needles into specific acupuncture points to restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself. As with all medical intervention some risk is involved, however acupuncture is considered a safe modality when conducted by a skilled Chinese medicine practitioner. Our Acupuncturist, Juanita Fuchs is gentle, compassionate, experienced and effective and our treatment rooms are some of the most modern and relaxing in Brisbane.
