Acupuncture and Remedial Massage
Our Chinese Medicine therapist Ms Jennifer Raicevich has been treating patients with a wide range of health issues such as acute and chronic musculoskeletal aches and pains, tennis elbow/golfers elbow, frozen shoulder, bursitis, neck and back pain, menopause and metabolic syndromes, whiplash accidents, work and sport related injuries, womens’ health issues, fibromyalgia, digestive problems and other related health issues.
Jennifer believes in the importance of applying all appropriate modalities in treating each patient’s unique condition to achieve the most effective outcome. She employs traditional Chinese Medicine techniques - this involves differential diagnosis of the tongue and pulse followed by treatment which could include acupuncture, appropriate massage techniques, cupping, moxibustion or myofascial release.
Musculoskeletal Pain: In most musculoskeletal conditions especially neck and shoulder, back, elbow, arms, back, knee wrist and legs pain etc, insertion of acupuncture needles is not in the pain area. "I like to emphasise this because most people has needle phobia and the thought of needle deter them from having acupuncture. By needling somewhere else in the body, the patient not only can feel instantaneous pain relief but also able to mobilise the restricted neck, elbow, knee or wrist to test the effect of acupuncture. In most cases patients able to move their neck or elbow, knee or wrist without pain. Sometimes the pain moves and I will chase the pain until its gone."
Cosmetic Acupuncture/Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture: "Another passionate area of acupuncture that has proven great success for me is Cosmetic Acupuncture/Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Almost all patients are very happy with the result of the before and after look and feeling great. The therapy treats not only the face but the whole body as well. So unlike all other "beauty" treatment in the market, I don't think any beauty therapy addresses both face and body at the same time. I have before and after photos to prove. Yet most people are not aware that acupuncture can reduce your frown lines, wrinkles, tighten your jowls, even out your complexion, etc making you look refreshed, radiant and relaxed."
