Traditional Chinese Medicine

Ancient Chinese techniques are now being utilised world wide as a non-surgical and safe alternative to treat a multitude of symptoms and conditions. Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses more than Acupuncture alone. At Ascent Acupuncture we are trained in, and use many other techniques to help both your symptoms and conditions.


A technique where suction cups are placed on areas of the body to relieve stagnant blood flow and pain in musculoskeletal conditions, and relieve colds and respiratory conditions. Excellent for neck, back and shoulders.


Moxa is made from Mugwort (Artemisia argyi) and is used to warm the needles or areas on the body. This stimulates circulation and blood flow, as well as leaving you feeling warm and relaxed.

Electro Acupuncture

Here a device is attached to certain needles generating continuous electric pulses along that muscle, meridian or nerve. This again stimulates Blood flow and Qi flow, and is particularly good for pain syndromes.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbs have been used for centuries and can be useful for almost any condition. At Ascent Acupuncture we use patent herbal formulas that go through rigorous quality and control testing. They are practitioner prescribed only. We also supply Metagenics and Proherb supplements which can work separately or synergistically with Traditional Chinese formulas.
