At the Sydeny Acupuncture we offer both corrective exercises and self massage (Dao Yin) as an adjunct to other therapies.
This generally involves the practitioner showing the patient various exercises to strengthen or revitalise particular areas. Generally it will include stretches and soft rolling techniques. The corrective exercises are usually used in the management of Musculo-skeletal disorders (such as Neck Strain, Lower Back Pain, and Shoulder Pain etc.)
Self Massage is a highly effective technique for relaxation and circulation. It is aimed at teaching the patient how to help themselves while not in the clinic. Self Massage has been used for thousands of years to assist patients with conditions relating to stress, fatigue, and pain etc. We personally recommend this therapy for people who work long hours in front of a computer and need a break. Nearly all techniques are able to be done in a seated position. Self Massage is also incorporated into our cosmetic programs, and can be taught separately or during an Acupuncture session.
