The secret is out on treating chronic pain and stress symptoms: acupuncture.
The effectiveness of acupuncture in reducing back, shoulder and knee pain, as well as balancing the emotional effects of stress, anxiety and depression has been confirmed in clinical trials completed by Hugh MacPherson in York, UK.
The findings mean that patients and health professionals can now make decisions on acupuncture with more confidence.
“Not only is it more cost effective, but it reduces pain levels and improves mood levels, which could reduce over reliance on drugs that can sometimes result in unwanted side effects,” according to Mr MacPherson.

Phil Macqueen who founded Redlands acupuncture clinic, Acupuncture Works, worked with Professor MacPherson in York when he begun his clinic trials.
Phil brought this passion and skill for healing naturally to the Redlands more than 30 years ago, which is now continuing with Melissa Bond who has recently joined Acupuncture Works and is quickly established a loyal following.
Through her extensive training Melissa has developed expertise in treating musculoskeletal issues with acupuncture as a way to avoid pain management with drugs and the need for invasive surgery.
“My training was achieved like an apprenticeship, working alongside an acupuncturist, an osteopath and psychotherapist, giving me a deep understanding about the muscular/skeletal, the psyche and emotional relationship,” Melissa said.
Today’s treatment is strictly regulated in Australia and refunds are available with the major health funds.
There are no worry if you have a fear of regular needles, as acupuncture needles are single-use, sterilised, stainless steel iterations as thin as cat’s hair.
With its specialist expertise, honest reputation and reasonable prices, it’s not surprising that Acupuncture Works, nestled in tranquil bushlands of Wellington Point, has become a local place for healing and wellbeing.
If your physical or mental health is not at its best call Acupuncture Works and speak to Melissa.
