We all know acupuncture for its ability to successfully treat pain. But acupuncture is also great for treating a lot more than just your average ailments. Studies show that regular acupuncture sessions minimise stress and can help to align any disharmonies in the body (which might be the cause of problems like anxiety, migraines, skin disorders, and even infertility).
Along with all these health benefits, acupuncture can also be used cosmetically, increasing collagen production, strengthening muscle tone, tightening skin, and brightening up dull eyes. And, being the vain people we are, we want some of that.
Because going under the needle can be daunting without some guidance, we've developed our list of the best acupuncture clinics Brisbane has to offer. Check it out!
Body & Soul Acupuncture Clinic
Local acupuncture expert and owner of Body & Soul Clinic, Eric Drescher, is dedicated to a holistic healing approach when it comes to his patients. No patient is the same, and no condition is the same, but with Eric's personalised approach and expert advice, you'll be back fighting fit (and looking great) in no time. As well as traditional Chinese acupuncture, Body & Soul offer cosmetic acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, moxibustation, and massage and Chinese and Western herbal medicines, among other treatments.
