What is it?


Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment involving the insertion of acupuncture needles to help pain, imbalances or disease. Traditional Chinese acupuncture practitioners theorise that when certain points of the body were massaged, punctured or heated, they relieved pain and restored the energy, or “Chi”, in the body. At Elite Podiatry we use a combination of local acupuncture points combined with trigger points to help treat and resolve a range of conditions of the lower limb including the following:

Common foot and ankle conditions that we treat at Elite Podiatry include:

At Elite Podiatry we use various techniques including traditional needles, acupressure and laser acupuncture. We frequently use acupuncture in addition to other methods to offer you the most effective form of treatment.


Our practitioners at Elite Podiatry usually recommend between six to twelve treatments to gain the desired effect. This is due to the accumulative nature of acupuncture therapy and this is only a guide as we rely on your case and your response to treatment. Depending on your requirements, we will customise a treatment suitable to your needs. We have a range of effective treatments available to help relieve and prevent this condition and improve your quality of life. Please call us at Elite Podiatry to organise an appointment for an assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
