Qualified and Accredited Doctors
Medical acupuncture is a new variant of acupuncture in which qualified and accredited doctors will use their western medicine scientific approach to derive a working diagnosis, then the doctor will use their knowledge of TCM and traditional acupuncture to deliver effective acupuncture therapy in conjunction of conventional medical therapy.
Dr. Max Po is trained from the Australian Medical Acupuncture College and practicing medical acupuncture for many years. With his passion in medical challenges and systemic structural problem solving approach, he has developed an effective way to help his patient with medical acupuncture.
If the flow of qi in the meridians becomes blocked or there is an inadequate supply of qi, then the body fails to maintain harmony, balance and order, and disease or illness follows. This can result from stress, overwork, poor diet, disease pathogens, weather and environmental conditions, and other lifestyle factors and becomes evident to TCM practitioners through observable signs of bodily dysfunction.
TCM practitioners look carefully for these signs of health and dysfunction, paying particular attention not only to the presenting signs and symptoms, but also to the medical history, general constitution, and the pulse and tongue.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.
