What to look for...Classical Acupuncture Sydney

Just a quick note on Classical Acupuncture Sydney's location in North Sydney / Crows Nest. We have undergone some re-branding and will no longer be called "David White Classical Acupuncture". Dr. White is still the principle acupuncture physician, however, as more trained classical acupuncturists will begin to join the clinic we wanted a more encompassing brand.

A few new signs will be displayed at street level and upstairs.

USA Acupuncture Seminars 2015 Done!

It was with great pleasure and immense gratitude that I travelled over to the USA this last month to teach as pecks of the Neijing Acupuncture style to my fellow practitioners and students. My first stop was in Kansas City, where acupuncturist Dr. Chris Powell was my host. We had a great time eating magnificent food and doing a full day seminar on the very specialised Renying / Cunkou pulse diagnosis technique of the Neijing. I am looking forward to returning to Kansas City to teach advanced needling techniques and more in 2016.

Following this was my return, after 3 years, to Portland, Oregon. I consider Portland a second home and have many close friends, some family to me, who live and practice there. I presented a 2 day seminar on the core needling chapters of the Neijing to a great group of people - a group that was a mixture of students past, long time practitioners, scholars, and friends. We steadily went through the classical methods one by one and enjoyed some practical time as well. In 2016 I will be kicking off the Neijing clinical program there with the diagnostic weekends - where pulse, complexion, and palpation techniques are taught in depth. It was a very special time for me in Portland this year as I reconnected with my old Neijing ISSCA crew and also was able to stay with my classical brother Dr. Verluys in his amazing home with his incredible family. 

Teaching has been a part of my Chinese medicine life as much as practice has. 2015 is 13th consecutive year of teaching undergraduate acupuncture and the 3rd year since the launch of the Institute of Neijing Research (INR). I look forward to many more years of teaching this incredible art, science, and medicine.

In Good Health...

Crows Nest Acupuncture for Fertility and Obstetric Care

Chinese medicine has a rich history of treating and managing fertility, pregnancy and postpartum conditions. From it's inception, Acupuncture has been used to help many people with numerous fertility / infertility issues and today is effectively used in conjunction with modern medical interventions such as IVF. Acupuncture for fertility, obstetrics and menopause has become part of many specialists referrals as either an adjunct or alternative approach.

How Can Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture works to restore the correct movement of fundamental substances in the body. These substances are primarily related to Blood (Xue), Breath (Qi), and other internal fluids. There are numerous reasons as to why such substances may become pathological. People often present with poor circulation, a physical obstruction, stagnation and so forth that may have originated through physical or emotional trauma, stress-syndromes, long term medication use (such as the pill), time, and many other possibilities. At Dr. White's clinic in Crows Nest on Sydney's North Shore he employs one of the oldest systems of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Classical acupuncture differs greatly to modern "traditional" Chinese medicine. Being a more in-depth and highly practical (and complete) system the root cause and clear prognosis can be established. In classical acupuncture of the Neijing, the explanation as to why and how the body may be in a pathological state is often crystal clear and unlike TCM there is no guess work involved.

Through multiple techniques (often involving the insertion of fine needles) classical acupuncture can guide and direct the movement of blood, help to break stagnant blood (which for many presents in the form of irregular ovulation cycles, PCOS, Endometriosis, painful or absent menstruation etc.) and allow the internal environment of the body to improve.

Additions to Classical Acupuncture Crows Nest

With Spring well and truly underway, and Summer just around the corner, I thought it appropriate to make a few changes to not only my main clinic but to parts of my general lifestyle. In the classic medical text the Huangdi Neijing Spring and Summer are 6 months of growth and development. It is a time of energetic movement, a time to exercise more, sleep less and build ones strength for the cooler months of Autumn and Winter. What does this have to do with the Crows Nest clinic? Or myself?

With daylight savings in full effect the Crows Nest clinic hours will be further extended on Thursdays and Fridays. Naturally this remains to be strictly by appointment, however, I understand that often normal work hours for many people are also extended. In addition, a new system is up and running for online bookings. You can now book initial, follow-up and herbal consultations / treatments online via this link: ONLINE BOOKINGS. Naturally one can still book via phone and email. In addition to these booking changes discounts will be awarded for both multiple bookings (6 and 12 sessions) and for regular patients who refer to the clinic. Please discuss these possible discounts and awards with myself on your next visit. Furthermore a strict 24 hour cancellation policy will be in effect from the 1st of November. What this means is that unless there is an emergency situation then the full fee will be charged (unless 24 hours notice is given).

In regards to my own changes...I will be ramping up my martial arts studies at VT1MMA where I train in Brazilian Jiujitsu, a beautiful and gentle grappling art. As Spring is about growth it is a great time to engage the correct movement of both body and mind. A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to begin studies under the exception Shakuhachi Grandmaster, Riley Lee. The Shakuhachi is a traditional Japanese Zen meditational flute which requires very specific and challenging breath work. It is in itself and form of deep meditation, breath cultivation, and music appreciation. So do not be surprised if you see new flit yes floating around the Crows Nest acupuncture clinic over the next months.
