Western Acupuncture in Boyne Island


Acupuncture originates from ancient Chinese medicine and is among the oldest healing practices in the world. Acupuncture uses thin and flexible needles to insert into the skin at specific acupuncture points on the body. Due to its low side-effects, acupuncture had become increasingly popular in Western medicine. Acupuncture can treat a variety of health issues.

When to choose acupuncture

At Physioshop our certified physiotherapists combine Western acupuncture with other treatment techniques.  Western acupuncture can influence three areas of health care:

    1. Promotion of health and well-being
    2. Prevention of illness
    3. Treatment of various medical conditions

Western acupuncture is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension and stress and emotional conditions.

Dry Needling

Western acupuncture and dry needling techniques are similar. Dry needling originates from Western science. Acupuncture uses different needles simultaneously while in the dry needling method only one needle is used to puncture into muscles for a short amount of time.

When to choose dry needling

At Physioshop certified physiotherapist can use dry needling for:

    • Pain or stiffness of the muscle
    • Radiating pain (pain tangible in other places than where there is tissue damage)
    • Decreased strength in muscles
    • Headaches, dizziness, ringing in the ear (tinnitus) and / or eye complaints
    • Unexplainable molar pains, tooth aches or facial pain.
