Clinical Practice

Introduction to the Clinical Practice of Acupuncture:

Dr White's Clinical Practice of Acupuncture stems from his extensive training in classical Chinese medicine, philosophy, language and neuro-anatomical acupuncture under Dr. David Tai. He has been fortunate enough to study under some very diverse and traditional teachers as well as some specifically orthodox practitioners. Dr White brings a clinically effective blend to his practice for optimised results and patient care.

By basing his treatments on the fundamental teachings of classical China, no two acupuncture treatments will be the same. In clinical practice, Dr White will always use what he believes to be most effective and most comfortable for the patient - this is a minimalist approach to acupuncture and Chinese medicine yet one that yields the greatest results.

What to expect in an acupuncture treatment:

Classical acupuncture is significantly different and more diverse than standard acupuncture. As both styles of medicine are clinically effective, Dr White feels that he is able to gain faster results with the classical approach to the body. A general acupuncture session may involve:
