Acupuncture for IBS Cairns – People who have IBS are often found to have a food allergy, and clinical studies have found that the most common ofending foods are grains (especially wheat), dairy products, coffee, tea, and citrus fruits.  Many IBS suffferes find relief by aboiding al gluten grains, but is is usually those who have diarrhoea that find they do better without dairy products.  It is also worth taking an IgG food intolerance test, which you can do as a home test kit (please phone us here at the clinic 0408 054 538).

The next possibility to explore is whether you are eating something that you are intolerant to but not allergic to.  The most common intolerance is to the lactose in milk.  Many people in fact, most of the world’s adult population – do not have the digestive enzyme, lactase, in their bodies that is necessary to digest the lactose in milk.

The beginning of Cairns Acupuncture –

This is a story that started in Victoria, went all over the world and came back and landed in Cairns –

After Graduating from her Bachelor of Health Science – Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture (with honours!!)  Tanya Galvin opened Synergy Acupuncture clinic in 2002 in Shepparton, Victoria.

In 2008  Tanya traveled the world working as an Acupuncturist, hypnotherapist, kinesiologist, spa therapist and Massage therapist on Cruise Ships around the world for Royal Carribean and Princess Cruise lines.

After five promotions to bigger and better cruise ships as a reward for doing a great job she decided to settle back in Australia.

Cairns Acupuncture was born….Tanya now uses all her treatment modalities to run a successful and busy clinical practice!

What is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (orthopedic massage) and Qi Gong (meditation and energy healing.)

With a history of almost 3000 years it is still used extensively today to treat literally millions of people around the world.

Acupuncture affects the physiological functioning of the body by the insertion of fine needles into particular reflex points all over the body. Because it is a primary health care system in itself, acupuncture can be used to treat most health problems, ranging from colds and flus, to neck and back problems, to insomnia and chronic fatigue.

How does acupuncture work?

Medically acupuncture works by regulating carious systems in the body – hormonal, nervous, immune, circulatory, muscular etc.

In traditional Chinese Medicine theory, acupuncture regulates the flow of qi (pronounced chee), a type of unseen energy or electromagnetic force traveling in a system of channels which connect acupncture points to tissues and organs.

Does it Hurt?

most people are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable acupuncture therapy is, often falling asleep on the treatment table. The needles are generally between 0.2 and 0.25mm in width. Five of these fit in the bore of one hyperdermic needle….they are as fine as a human hair!

They are inserted quickly to minimize skin pain, and when correctly stimulated, there is a feeling of tingling, mild cramping or an electric sensation at the point.

How deep the needles are inserted varies from a few millimetres to a couple of inches or more depending on the size of the patient and where the point lies on the body.

Do Acupuncturist have to study in China?

Australia is leading the western world in it’s availability of university based degree courses in Chinese Medicine – majoring in acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, or both – and most of these institutions have affiliations with Chinese Medicine teaching hospitals to provide an opportunity for post-graduate study. Chinese Medicine practitioners are now governed by new legislation passed on by Australian Government preventing unqualified people from calling themselves Acupuncturists or Chinese Medicine Practitioners.
