Jeff can help you to feel better through:

In essence, acupuncture needles are used to stimulate the nerves and hormones. Jeff’s sterile and disposable needles are much finer than needles used for injections, creating significantly less (if any) sensation.

Jeff may recommend a Chinese herbal formula created especially for you. The herbs come in tablet, capsule or powder form and are easy to take. All herbs are high quality and meet the Australian Therapeutic Goods Authority standards.

Whether you are interested in losing or gaining weight, or building your immunity for better health, Jeff can talk through a manageable nutrition plan that suits your tastes and your budget. No radical changes will be asked of you. A gradual shift is usually the key to successful eating and drinking. Some vitamins may also be recommended.

Feeling out of kilter? Your life may be consumed by work and/or family demands. Or you might just need a motivational boost to get that healthy balance back again. Whatever it is, Jeff is qualified to help. And he has a plan that’s grounded in reality and manageable for you.

Firstly, Jeff will talk to you about what might be bothering you, and possibly check you pulse and/or the colour and texture of your tongue.

diagnosing

It’s usually just a matter of lying on the treatment table. Most clients don’t need to remove clothing for a treatment, as Jeff’s needle technique mainly focuses on the hands and feet – yes, even if your pain or problem is a completely different area of the body. Curious? More about ‘meridians’

Preparing

With your permission, Jeff will apply acupuncture needles in areas specifically designed for your individual condition. He may ask how you are feeling as after he inserts the needle. If you have a specific pain, for example, you may find the pain easing or disappearing altogether. Jeff may also incorporate a variety of other techniques to ensure you are getting the best possible treatment, such as a short massage in a particular problem area or cranialsacral therapy.

The number of needles depends on the condition. Once the needles are in, Jeff usually leaves the room. This allows you time to relax and the treatment to have a greater affect. The needles are often left in for approximately 20-30 minutes.

treatment

After the treatment, Jeff will talk to you about what can happen next. An effective treatment plan may require more than one consultation to ensure your symptoms abate and do not return. Herbs may also be recommended as part of your plan (more about herbs). Jeff will discuss your best options and respect your right to decide on further action.
