At Balanced Life Health Care, we practise using Balance Distal Acupuncture. This Acupuncture method is based around the ancient Chinese needle therapy practiced for over 1000 years and combined with the modern medical knowledge, we place emphasis on the function of the nervous and circulatory system in relation to Pain, Illness and Dysfunction. Acupuncture is a traditional approach, which is general considered safe, well tolerated, and well researched for helping manage a range of symptoms, it involves the insertion of fine needles into particular areas in the skin. It is thought that Acupuncture increases circulation, reduces inflammation and swelling, aids in the release of the bodies own natural pain killers and reduces stress.
Chiropractors focus primarily on the bio-mechanics of the body. Looking at the relationship between structure, alignment and function. This unique relationship can generate adverse effects such as your pain and discomfort, but when performing correctly can lead to the preservation and restoration of health. At Balanced Life Health Care Ferntree Gully, our Chiropractors take a holistic approach to treatment. Focusing not only on the spine, but alignment and dynamics of the the entire body as well as looking at any lifestyle improvements that can be adapted to further improve your quality of life. Making sure to not just eliminate your pain, but get you feeling better than you have before.
