Providing holistic healing with acupuncture, cupping, herbal therapy and general wellness coaching.
Christopher Nesbitt Acupuncture
Using the balance method of acupuncture I focus on the treatment of pain and injury management, often with immediate relief.
Other areas I can help with are:
psycho emotional issues such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression
headache and migraines
I provide holistic healing with acupuncture, cupping, herbal therapy and general wellness coaching.
Acupuncture is a safe, medication free model of health preservation. I manipulate the body’s own intelligence to correct its miscommunication and dysfunction. Acupuncture really is an ancient solution to the modern problems lifestyle, environment, stress and personal activities cause.
My family has lived in the Port Macquarie region for many years and I have recently returned after a few years on the Gold Coast. In my spare time I can be found on a board at Lighthouse Beach or spending time with my family.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into strategically placed locations to create a neurological effect on the body encouraging blood flow to the region. Acupuncture is manipulating the ‘irrigation system’ that is meridians and blood flow around the body.
The body’s self-protection mechanism when in trauma is vasoconstriction of blood, or to shut down the injury site completely. In Chinese medicine we call this blood stagnation or stasis, resulting in the pain and dysfunction. The effect of needle insertion is manipulation and correction of the ‘irrigation system’. This creates vasodilation and extra blood flow to the injured site and return of normal function. This is the magic of acupuncture, we guide the body to correct its own communication and function without the adverse reactions of some common medications.
What is Balance Method?
The style of acupuncture I practice is called the balance method which is derived from a 2,500 year old medical classic called the I Ching, regarded as one of the oldest books in the world. The concept of healing in this style is balancing meridians and their associated organs to achieve optimal health. The balance method often produces immediate results on pain and is also invaluable for treating difficult conditions that have not responded to conventional treatment.
Acupuncture points I use are found on the scalp and ears, from the elbow to fingers and knee to toes usually in a comfortable laying down position. This gives a more relaxed, efficient and comfortable environment for amazing results to take place.
At the initial consult I take a detailed medical history which gives insight on body function and where deficiency and excess may be. I will test your range of motion and we will talk about your current diet and lifestyle. The initial consult will take approximately 90 minutes and from then on regular treatments will be 60 minutes.
I ask you to commit to three treatments in the first 10 days. This gives the best possible chance for positive change to occur with your symptoms. After this we can gauge your body’s receptiveness and plan ongoing treatment. Continuity is the key with acupuncture as one-off treatments may not have the desired effect.
Please call 24 hours in advance to cancel to reschedule to avoid fees.
