Acupuncture has been used as a treatment
method for thousands of years.
In modern times, acupuncture continues to treat a wide number of health issues and is becoming more and more of an evidence-based medicine.
Acupuncture works on regulating the physiological processes of the body to ensure proper
functioning. Our bodies are remarkable machines, much more so than we may give credit to. Our bodies are intrinsically programmed to maintainan equilibrium within all cells and structures in our body. Through lifestyle choices and environmental factors, our inner environment can become overloaded, and thus not allowing thebody to heal itself effectively. Sluggish elimination, poor circulation and stress are just some of the factors that diminish the bodies healing capabilities.
Through the stimulation of a formulation of specific points on the body,
acupuncture can have a remarkable effect on remedying these issues and thus allowing the body to return to its pre-programmed healthful state.
In accordance with the registration standards of the CMBA, all registered Chinese medicine practitioners are obliged to meet standards of safety and efficacy.

"The key to mastering health is to regulate the yin and yang of the body. If the yin and yang balance is disrupted, it is like going through a year with spring but no winter, or winter but no summer. When the yang is excessive and cannot contain itself, the yin will be consumed. Only when the yin remains calm and harmonious will the yang be contained.. the spirit normal, and the mind clear."
The Yellow Emperors Classic of Medicine
Positive step for the public – Chinese medicine is now a nationally registered health profession.
Chinese medicine practitioners must now be registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) in order to offer acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine services to the public.
This move comes after the Chinese medicine profession joined the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions on 1 July 2012. This is the same scheme that regulates medical practitioners, physiotherapists, chiropractors, dentists, nurses and midwives etc. The primary purpose of national registration is to protect the public and registered Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture practitioners have to practice in accordance with national standards.
Vicki Ball of Honourhealth is registered as an acupuncturist with the CMBA. Vicki is also a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association Ltd (AACMA), the peak national body of qualified Chinese medicine practitioners, which means an added layer of protection and reassurance for the public.
Vicki Ball treats most conditions in general acupuncture practice and has a special interest in stress disorders, womens’ health, infertility, as well as chronic conditions not responding to mainstream medicine.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine originated in China more than 2000 years ago and has become well-established in the mainstream health systems of China, Japan, Korea and other parts of East and South East Asia. Chinese medicine has been established as a profession in Australia for more than 35 years.
Chinese Medicine is a system of primary health care that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, remedial massage (tuina), exercise and breathing therapy (such as qigong), and diet and lifestyle advice.
