Acupuncture Clinic Sydney: Integrative Health Care

Throughout the many years that i have been practicing acupuncture and Chinese medicine in Sydney i have realised the importance of integrative medical modalities. It is very rare that i encounter a patient that is only seeing one health care practitioner. It is often the case that patients are seeing a number of practitioners, from massage therapists, to physiotherapists, chiropractors and medical physicians. This can often cause confusion for the patient as they will frequently be given different, sometimes contradictory, advice from their respective practitioners. 

To solve this issue i am creating a network of practitioners that i work with. These include physiotherapists, massage therapists and body workers, GP's, specialists, chiropractors, and other allied health practitioners. My first step is incorporating these very practices into my own clinic: working along side these practitioners so that each patients may receive well informed, clinically relevant, and evidence based (regardless of the medical paradigm) treatments. As  a step toward this i have created a basic info site for this integrative network: www.acupunctureclinicsydney.com.au will be a base for those interested in receiving treatment from integrative acupuncture clinics in Sydney. Primarily at my city practice and my north shore practice.

As previously mentioned, my Sydney city acupuncture clinic offers treatment and management for many different disorders from pain and sports injuries to migraine headaches and gynaecological disorders (PMS, fertility issues and so on). Here i work together with very experienced body workers, massage specialists, and have developed a network with Sydney based chiropractors, osteopaths, physios, doctors, homeopaths and naturopaths. I also work and refer to other acupuncture practitioners who specialise in particular fields.

My St Leonards acupuncture clinic is much the same, however, my clinic is within a purpose built rehabilitation centre. This is a close group of neuro and orthopaedic rehabilitation specialists who work with each patient for optimum care. This, in turn, also helps reduce costs and time for patients with severe debilitation. This clinic is one of the only centres to have stroke rehab specialists, polio rehab specialists, hydro-therapy, orthotics, and acupuncture under the one roof.

This is a very exciting time for patients who can now receive acupuncture within mixed-modality settings in specialist clinics around Sydney.
