Acupuncture has been used for over 2000 years because quite simply, it rocks! It’s benefits have always been acknowledged by regular users, but now science and research is catching up, confirming its amazing regulating effects on the body.

Much like the Yin Yang symbol which has come to mean balance and harmony, the effects of acupuncture are to bring balance and harmony to the body. It can assist to regulate hormones and neurotransmitters, release muscles, allow the digestion to flow more freely and help the body expel physical and emotional toxicity.

Our acupuncturist here at Step into Health has a particular interest in treating people with anxiety and depression. Michael integrates breathing, stress management techniques and meditation with is acupuncture treatments and has exceptional results treating mental health conditions.

In the Practice of Chinese Medicine we believe in treating the “Ben and the Biao,” the “Root and the Branch” of any dis-ease. Rarely is the cause of a dis-ease in the site of its manifestation. Nothing in the body every happens in isolation of the rest of the body. Chinese Medicine creates a lens through which to see the many and varied interconnections within the body, and allows a skilled practitioner to get to the heart of a dis-ease, to stimulate the body to heal itself…..   Naturally.

More specifically, below are some common conditions that benefit from acupuncture treatment:

  • Stress and insomnia
  • Digestive conditions including reflux, bloating and IBS
  • Musculoskeletal complaints such as sporting injuries (e.g. frozen shoulder) or tight muscles in general
  • Poor circulation
  • Fluid retention
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Discomfort, fluid retention, morning sickness and other pregnancy related conditions*
  • Irregular periods, PCOS and endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Natural induction

We also offer a specialized ‘Stop Smoking’ program, which you can read more about here.
