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:
QUESTIONS OR WISHING TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
Pulse and Abdominal Palpation
Acupuncture and / or moxabustion
Dietary and Exercise advice
What Can Acupuncture Help With?
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is an incredibly diverse practice. Having been the primary health modality of east-Asia for well over two millennia there is very little that Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has not dealt with. Rather than list disease after disease here it is always best to consult your practitioner and we encourage anyone considering acupuncture to call, email or message us with their query.
Historically (that is, listed in the many many extant texts still currently available to us), however, acupuncture has been extensively used to assist in many conditions, including pain management, gastric disorders, pregnancy and childbirth, fertility, emotional disorders, injury, and so on. What one will find is that the approach used in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is one of a completely different scientific paradigm than what we have today. The founders and developers of this medicine stemmed from a time where their outlook on their environment, body, and universe was incredibly unique. Yes, they looked at the same body as the rest of us do, however, where we see structure they may have seen pattern and function, where we label one thing they may have labelled two or more as an interconnected system.
