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.

Classical Chinese Medicine Education...

Dear friends,

2014 saw the inception of the Institute of Neijing Research (INR), the only Neijing focused post-graduate education institution in the world. My intention for starting the INR was to allow students, practitioners, and other interested a path into classical China, it's culture and medicine. The Huangdi Neijing, in it's current form, consists of 162 specific chapters. It is a clinical manual and medical treatise which encompasses the first complete system of acupuncture and Chinese medicine to date. It spawned such magnificent texts in both herbal medicine and acupuncture (an example of this is the Shanghan Zabinglun). 

In addition, the INR wishes to work in conjunction with other classical institutions to ensure that the future of Chinese medicine around the globe is built and continued to be built on a strong foundation. In it's current form, Chinese medicine is often taught in a diluted form on mass. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it allows graduates of current "TCM" programs to gather information about the many various methodologies in east-asian medicine that is ultimately available to them. 

Furthermore, the INR will also be hosting a number of Pre-Han and Han Dynasty cultural talks. The purpose of these talks is to allow participants to see life through the lens of the Han culture. From early medical texts (pre-Neijing), to cultural and ideological concepts (Daoism, Confucianism, Legalism, Cosmology and Cosmogony etc) these talk are intended for people from all walks of life. In time we hope to have a continuous dialogue through regular seminars and talks on early Doaist thought and how it can help individuals in their day to day routine. In fact, it may be the answer to breaking that routine.

For all information on seminars, events, evening talks, reading groups and much more please head over to www.neijingmedicine.com
