Welcome to the Pain Relief and Wellness Clinic

Acupuncture can rejuvenate, energise and heal. It will boost overall vitality, stimulate the immune system and help correct alignment for smoother sailing.

At our clinic, we practise an integrated, holistic approach to relieving pain, improving health, reducing stress levels and boosting overall well-being.

We focus strongly on using acupuncture and remedial massage. Our treatments are non-invasive and non-toxic, providing a treatment approach that utilises the body’s own healing mechanisms to bring about change and boost health.

One of the great benefits is that you can use our treatments to heal injuries and ill health as well as to energise and invigorate the body to keep it strong with improved resistance to future ailments.

Acupuncture and remedial massage are ‘hands on’ therapies providing great feedback on how the body is responding to the treatment, with active acupressure or trigger points changing during the course of treatment.

We also encourage supplementing the acupuncture and remedial massage treatments with specific Chinese herbs, providing a powerful enhancement of treatment benefits between sessions.

If you would like to see what acupuncture looks like, please check out our The Pain Relief and Wellness Clinic Experience in the Video’s section of the website.

The clinic is located in the central part of Sydney in the fun hustle and bustle of Darlinghurst. While the neighbourhood is colourful and vibrant, the clinic is surprisingly quiet and the surroundings relaxing.

Venom is being used to developed new pain relief therapeutics.

Animal venom can be very painful and very nasty if we are stung.
However, scientists are looking at the compounds found in venom and
how they can be useful to the human body.

For example, Australian scientists are looking at sea snail venom, conotoxins,
for pain relief. When delivered in the right dose, the pain relief can be superior
to opioids and analgesics. Further development is needed but results look promising.

Australia has the most amount of venomous wildlife in the world. We are in a great
position to develop more of these venom derived therapies.

Box jelly fish venom has use in protecting heart tissue.
There could be some very exiting applications for heart transplant surgery.

Omega fish oil & high dose Vitamin D supplement DO NOT have much effect on healthy individuals in regards to cancer & heart health. A large-scale study done at the Brigham and Women’s hospital looked at healthy individuals and whether supplementation with fish oil and vit D would reduce rates of cancer and heart disease later in life. No real health protective effect was found with supplementation in the 5-year study. Healthy food is probably better than health pills.

Acupuncture guide tube explained. A lot of acupuncturists use guide tubes to insert acupuncture needles. It helps with accuracy of point location and also allows for swift insertion with minimal discomfort. The guide tube is a little shorter than the needle by about 5 mm. The tube with needle is placed on skin. The needle sticks up out above the tube this same 5 mm. The needle is then swift press down on with a finger. A sort of “flicking” action. This allows the needle to pass through the sensitive part of the skin layer and be placed in the muscle. Depending on the needle site, it can be further manipulated or left as tapped in.

Paraplegic men walk again after electrical stimulation treatment.

Swiss scientists have been getting promising results with targeted electrical stimulation on spinal cords.
Patients are surgically implanted with electric stimulator's to stimulate spinal cord. They then go through rigorous spinal rehab to retrain the legs muscles. Interestingly “participants regained voluntary control over previously paralysed muscles without the electrical stimulation, suggesting that there is a growth of new nerve connection in response to this treatment”.
Research is being conducted in Australia. More needs to be understood about spinal cord injury. However, hopefully treatment will be available here locally within 5 years.

Acupuncture needles are very fine. Here is a comparison to a match, paper clip, 16 gauge needle and sewing needle. The acupuncture needle with metal handle is 0.20 mm in diameter and the one with plastic handle is 0.12 mm diameter. The tips are also filiform so they are rounded like the tip of a ball point pen. This has the effect of disturbing the muscle minimally when inserted. Makes for a much more comfortable experience.

How we can help

Are you experiencing back and neck discomfort/pain you don’t know how to resolve?

Do you feel you have put up with this long enough?  You want to find a solution to reduce this distressing pain and hopefully, make it go away entirely.

Is this stopping you from doing the things you love?  Or making work unbearable?

You feel a dull ache in the muscles that just won’t go away.  Perhaps it has even developed to a more burning pressure in arms or legs.   If you are an active person this can be especially frustrating.  Pain is limiting.  It does this for good reason.  Pain is a protective mechanism to preserve your life.  It limits further damage being done to the injured part of your back or neck. It’s also a message telling you that you need help.

Pain doesn’t make you a better person.  In fact, over time it will actually change who you are.  It has been shown in scientific literature that the brain remaps itself according to stimulus. Longstanding pain could get “hard wired” in the brain.  It can remain present even when the injury has healed.  Life is short.  There is no point in wasting time being a grouch or a couch potato due to pain.  There are so many amazingly better things to do.  For example skiing [link to ski page] or mountaineering.

Do you have demanding work at the office?  Sitting long hours at a desk can place strenuous demands on the body.  Slogging away at your work, a small niggle can go from an ache to something excruciating.  Neck pain is a common result of too much work at the computer.  All that weight of the arm hinges on the poor wrists.  Work is necessary.  Most can’t change the work environment, but there are options to change and alleviate the negative impact on vulnerable parts of the body due to work situations.

If you are struggling with back and neck pain, we can help you to relieve the discomfort and return to normal life doing the things you love.

Acupuncture and massage are a great way to help solve this problem.  Releasing the soft tissue and muscle tension gives relief from the pain. Releasing muscle tightness can also provide more room for the nerves.  Reduced irritation of the nerves will reduce pain.

Please give us a call at the clinic to book in for an appointment. We are also happy discuss any questions or concerns you might have.
