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.

Our Team of Acupuncturists

Master David S.C. Man, D.Ac

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.

Today David uses his therapies for safe alternative treatments for migraine, tinnitus, bed-wetting, sinusitis, asthma, neck, back and sports injuries, allergies, stones, impotence, high and low blood pressure, skin diseases, pain control, insomnia, sciatica, nausea, weight control, drug and alcohol dependence, internal disorders, long term and unusual health problems including: spastic quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, post-stroke, goiter and moxibustion.

Hypnosis when used in therapy (hypnotherapy) gives you greater control over your life. Hypnotherapy can effectively treat a range of emotional or mental health issues and is a safe and effective tool for directly accessing the subconscious mind.

Hypnotherapy is entirely patient-centred, based on the premises that the “inner knower” has the answers to various problems and to heal, people need to access their deepest mind or subconscious.

Hypnotherapy is often helpful in redefining emotional content and attitudes, as well as addressing a wide range of conditions including dysfunctional habits, anxiety, stress-related illness, pain management and personal development.
