What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Are you looking for acupuncture in Brisbane City? Caitlin Armit, from Fusion Acupuncture & Natural Therapies, provides professional and safe treatments for a wide variety of health concerns.

 Acupuncture is one part of an integrated system of medicine known as Chinese Medicine. Our bodies are complex structures and we often ignore the small signs and symptoms that should tell us when something is not quite right. Chinese Medicine values these signs and symptoms as key diagnostic tools, along with palpation and tongue and pulse diagnosis.

 Below is an overview of health concerns which are commonly and effectively treated with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine: if you would like to know more about treatments please visit our FAQ page.

Musculoskeletal Pain

Musculoskeletal pain can arise from poor posture, accidents/traumas, psychological factors and more complicated health conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson's disease. Some conditions that can be effectively treated with acupuncture include, but are not limited to: 

·         Headaches & migraines

·         Low back pain

·         Sciatica

·         Neck pain

·         Osteoarthritis

·         Rheumatoid arthritis

·         Carpal tunnel syndrome

·         Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)

·         Tendonitis and bursitis

·         Sprains and strains

·         Frozen Shoulder

Neurological pain associated with diabetic neuropathy, post-operative nerve pain, trigeminal neuralgia, and post-stroke neuralgia also well treated with acupuncture.


Poor quality sleep or insufficient sleep is a big concern in modern society. The increasing demand for people to work long hours, be ‘switched on’ all the time or juggle shift work with family life puts a lot of pressure on our minds and bodies. 

Acupuncture may help you to fall asleep faster, sleep through the night comfortably (improve breathing, regulate body temperature, reduce trips to the bathroom), reduce the frequency and intensity of dreams & nightmares, and wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new day. 


Acute symptoms such as constipation, diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, bloating, abdominal pain, reflux and indigestion may be treated extremely well with acupuncture whether they are due to stress, food poisoning or other digestive conditions.  Treatments are especially useful for those who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Coeliac Disease and Diverticulosis/ Diverticulitis.

Respiratory Conditions

Acupuncture offers fast and effective relief from symptoms associated with colds and flus such as cough, headaches runny or blocked nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, blocked sinuses and shortness of breath. It also relieves wheezing associated with asthma.

The five senses

Acupuncture can resolve a number of conditions relating to the senses, head and face:

·         Eyes (sore eyes, blurry vision, conjunctivitis)

·         Ears (tinnitus, infections, dizziness/vertigo)

·         Nose (post-nasal drip, common cold, sinus infections, hayfever)

·         Mouth/throat (difficulty swallowing, toothache, ulcers, itchy throat, jaw dysfunctions)

·         Skin (eczema, psoriasis, acne, acute rashes)


Many research studies support the use of acupuncture for fast relief of headaches and migraines and the ability to reduce their frequency and intensity.

Womens' Health

Women’s health is a broad category of unique health concerns ranging from menstrual pain and disorders to pregnancy care and menopause.

Menstruation & Ovulation  - period pain, irregular cycles, PMS, anovulation, PCOS, endometriosis and fibroids are all conditions which we treat regularly in the clinic.

Pregnancy Care – this may include fertility problems, morning sickness, fatigue, hip & lower back pain, pre-birthing & labour induction, post-natal depression, or lactation problems.

Menopause – symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, dry skin, weight gain, low libido and mood swings can be improved with maintenance acupuncture treatments.

Energy Boost & General Health

Sometimes people present with symptoms which aren’t so clear cut or which require ‘talking it out’ to identify your health goals. You may feel low on energy, queasy in the stomach, sleepy, anxious or just not ‘yourself.’ This is a perfectly good reason to seek acupuncture treatment. During a consultation we will sit with you and discuss your concerns, working with you to provide the best possible solutions. The key element of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is to restore balance in your body. Our goal is to improve your quality of life in as many aspects as possible – better sleep, better digestion, stable and happy moods, less pain, more energy and more confidence.
