NEED TO GET OUT OF PAIN RIGHT NOW?
Book in for an Initial Acupuncture Treatment with Assessment.


WANT TO FIND AND FIX THE DEEPER CAUSES OF YOUR CONDITION?
Choose from an Initial Naturopathic Comprehensive Consultation or an Initial Naturopathic Standard Consultation.
What’s the difference?  The Comprehensive appointment includes a scan on our bioresonance device, which scans for a wide range of possible causes of your problem, including bacteria, chemical disturbances, heavy metals, fungi, hormonal imbalances, parasites and more.


WANT TO DO BOTH AT ONCE?
You can also book in for an Initial Acupuncture with Comprehensive Consultation to get both pain relief AND get started on a more long term solution in the same session.

Costs:
  • Click the above links to see the cost of your chosen appointment.
  • Please note that if you choose a naturopathic appointment our practitioner will also prescribe you natural medicines.  The cost of these is normally between $100 to $200.  If you are on a budget, please inform the practitioner as he will then prescribe only the core, most essential products to get you started (it just means your progress may be slower).
  • Since our practitioner is both a Naturopath and a TCM practitioner, he may also recommend some basic medicines for you during your Initial Assessment if you are having Acupuncture.  If you prefer to only have acupuncture and not take any natural medicines, please let him know.

We have been able to help many clients with neuralgia (nerve pain) find relief.

Whether you’re a diabetic or cancer patient suffering from peripheral neuropathy, or are dealing with trigeminal neuralgia (facial pain), or any other type of nerve pain, acupuncture helps to stimulate nerve endings and bring blood to the affected area, bringing in fresh oxygen and clearing out toxins faster.

Chinese medicine understands this flow as ‘qi’ or chi, the lifeforce that animates all living things and flows like a river and its tributaries throughout the body.

For the western mind, it’s often easier to think of how acupuncture works simply in terms of blood circulation and electrical nerve impulses.

There are in fact many complex ‘qi’ processes going on, but in the case of neuropathy the aim is largely to get the fluids of the body moving smoothly and cleanly, clearing out old, stagnant blood and bringing fresh nutrients to your nervous system.

We also want to get the neurons throughout your nervous system firing as well as possible, with no hindrances for the electrical nerve impulses.  Acupuncture consistently achieves these goals.

An impressive 2007 study in fact showed that acupuncture significantly helped 76% of peripheral neuropathy sufferers compared with only 15% in the control group who underwent the normal medical treatment. Assessment was done through nerve conduction studies done over the course of 1 year (Acupuncture treatment improves nerve conduction in peripheral neuropathy., 2007 Mar;14(3):276, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17355547).

These findings were further supported by a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of 15 studies on acupuncture for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy caused by a range of conditions, including diabetes, Bell’s palsy, carpal tunnel syndrome, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and idiopathic conditions. The authors concluded that acupuncture appears to improve nerve conduction study parameters in both sensory and motor nerves and has significant success for most forms of peripheral neuropathy studied. (Acupuncture for the Treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis, 2017 Mar;23(3):164-179. doi: 10.1089/acm.2016.0155. Epub 2017 Jan 23., https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28112552/).

These great results are not limited to peripheral neuropathy.  There are a variety of studies on other forms of neuralgia, many of them showing acupuncture can help.  If you’re unlucky enough to be suffering from any form of nerve pain, please do make an appointment to see if acupuncture can help you too (links below).

Finally, please be aware that despite many successes with past clients I can’t guarantee success with every client (no health practitioner can).  Nevertheless, I am confident enough to offer a First Visit Guarantee, where we give YOU $30 (in addition to refunding you the full cost of our services to you) if you’re not satisfied with your first appointment.  Full details are below.
