Award-winning Acupuncture Brisbane
Gentle but powerful Japanese acupuncture treatments are one of our core services.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used systems of healing in the world and the Japanese have taken acupuncture to a new level. With the skill level involved being much higher than with regular acupuncture, Brisbane based Centenary Natural Therapies use Japanese acupuncture to produce strong changes in the body, to achieve much better long-term results, and to improve difficult and stubborn conditions. It is normally much more comfortable and relaxing than Chinese acupuncture.
The best way to understand acupuncture is to think of the acupuncture points as tiny controls for the body that can be turned up or down to change the way the body is behaving. For example, there is one point on the inside of the wrist that increases blood flow to the heart, one below the knee that increases stomach acid production for better digestion, one on the side of the hand that treats hormone imbalances, and one on the thumb for sore throats. There are thousands of these points, and over 4,000 years we have learnt how they help heal and repair the body.
Acupuncture is recognised by the World Health Organisation as having the ability to treat nearly 50 common ailments. These include nerve problems, musculoskeletal (muscle, joint or bone) conditions, emotional and psychological disorders, circulatory disorders, addictions, respiratory disorders and gastrointestinal conditions. However, because Japanese acupuncture works on correcting the body from the inside out, many other condition can be successfully treated.
Children’s bodies are very delicate, and it takes a high level of skill and training to correctly treat children with acupuncture. All of our therapists have the expertise and special training in this area to take care of your child’s health issues and restore their wellbeing.

At Brisbane-based Centenary Natural Therapies Clinic, as well as acupuncture treatments we also provide the following services:
Traditional Chinese Medicine – a complete medical system used to relieve pain and to treat or prevent disease. For around three thousand years, the Chinese and Japanese used a combination of Acupuncture, Chinese herbal remedies (herbs), diet, exercise and massage to address the causes and symptoms of health problems.
Natural Fertility Management – is a major speciality of our clinic, with 3 of our therapists highly trained and experienced in this area. Recent estimates are that one in six couples are classed as infertile, and fertility problems affect one in three women over 35, so this is a very significant problem in Australia. Something that should be easy and natural is becoming increasingly harder, and more and more couples are seeking effective solutions from our clinic.
Weight Loss – any experienced therapist will tell you that if you don’t address the causes, you won’t get good results, or get short-term improvement only. If you are eating well, exercising, and still not losing weight, something is causing your body to store fat instead of burn it up. We conduct a detailed analysis of why your body is wanting to retain excess weight, and provide you with a program that is tailored to the exact needs of your body.
Stop Smoking – quitting smoking is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health. We have possibly the most advanced Stop Smoking treatment program available. As well as controlling any cravings, the treatments help detoxify your body, repair your lungs, improve your heart, and reduce stress. This detailed approach helps to minimise the chance of any relapse, and one treatment is all that is normally required.
