The Uses of Acupuncture
Dr Kate Levett Acupuncture applies complementary medicine, such as Japanese acupuncture, to treat women’s health issues and anybody in North Sydney NSW who suffers from chronic pain.
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment method that addresses imbalance in the body, which causes symptoms of pain and other conditions.
This ancient Chinese healing system dates back 2,000 years. Nowadays, more than half of the Australian population relies on complementary medicine; one of which is acupuncture.
Acupuncture applies different techniques, but all of which focus on treating and preventing a disease. Kate specialises in Japanese Acupuncture which involves the insertion of fine needles in different points of the body.
Before treating a patient, she performs a diagnosis of their health by touching their pulse and examining the reflexes on their abdominals. Kate learnt this diagnostic process from her teachers Shimamura Sensei and Kiiko Sensei.
Maintaining Women's Health and Wellness
Acupuncture treats menstrual pain and addresses hormonal imbalances like PCOS, endometriosis, heavy flows and irregular periods. It has also been shown to increase chances of getting pregnant, decrease miscarriages, and reduce symptoms that are related to PMS and menopause.
The treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into different acupuncture points of the body to clear out any obstructions. This allows the energy or qi to flow freely and restore balance in the body.
