Needling

Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles which have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin.

According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of chi through channels known as meridians.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.  Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Master David S.C. Man is a third generation Chinese Acupuncturist, born in Canton, China. He was raised in Hong Kong where he learned music (Violin and Cello) and operatic singing. David wanted to become a professional musician, however his father insisted he learn the family business – acupuncture.

At age 15 David began 5 years study at the Guanezhon College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China, followed by 2 years hospital residency.

David came to Australia more than 30 years ago to practice and teach Acupuncture. He explains that he now uses both the 5,000 year old traditional Chinese Acupuncture needle methods and modern laser methods to balance ‘Yin and Yang’ obstructions in the flow of ‘Chi’ or ‘life-force’ energy, along the meridians or pathways of the body.

David is also an accomplished traditional Chinese artist, painting landscapes featuring mountains and waterfalls. He is a champion tennis player and welcomes the opportunity to play against others for healthy exercise of both mind and body.
