Japanese Acupuncture for Health and Vitality

Hello ,

I hope you and yours are enjoying good health and soaking up some of our new found spring warmth.

Have you or do you know someone who has been suffering with or struggling to recover from a bout of the flu?

If Traditional Japanese Acupuncture is effective for elite athletes under immense physical, mental and emotional pressure then it stands to reason that there could be significant benefit available for us mere mortals.

We are well into spring 2008 and it appears that life has not slowed down at all.

The rate of change, the extraordinary amount of information and seemingly endless possibilities available to us, the climate, the extreme events on the economic front, sporting heroes/ antiheroes, footy finals, babies popping up everywhere, it is all happening!

If we have insufficient energy/inspiration to maintain the cracking pace of life in the 21st century, instead of being pleasurable, life can become stressful and tiring, more of a struggle than an adventure, resulting in a subtle/not so subtle decline in our health and well-being.

Recharging our batteries through Traditional Japanese Acupuncture can optimize our ability to enjoy life to its fullest!

Last Tuesday I finally managed to get myself from ‘Behind the Clinic Curtain’ to the other side, receiving an extremely rejuvenating Traditional Japanese Acupuncture treatment from my talented colleague and former number one clinical assistant, Efrat Sudai.

‘My sore and tender throat, dull nagging sinus pain, aching and lethargic body, upset tummy were greatly improved after one 45 minute session of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture.’

The change in how I felt as a result of this treatment was nothing short of extraordinary and had me singing the praises of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture and the skill of Efrat with renewed vigor.

A big thank you to Efrat for her timely assistance in restoring my health and well-being, in the process reinforcing my awareness and understanding of the power of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture from the other side of the clinic curtain!

I am extremely grateful to have a practitioner of Efrat’s skill and expertise available for treatment and have already booked in for my next session!

During my 25 years in practice I have witnessed 100’s of positive treatment outcomes for patients suffering from low immunity, repeated doses of colds and flu with the subsequent lingering performance affecting afflictions, including sinus, cough, lethargy, achiness, headaches, general malaise or a feeling of ‘unwellness’ that settles upon us like a cloud, drastically affecting our sense of well – being and enjoyment of life.

Former Olympic swimmer Daniel Kowalski, former Brisbane Lions AFL star Alastair Lynch, newly appointed coach and former premiership captain of the Brisbane Lions, Michael Voss, current Brisbane Lions stars including Jonathan BrownDaniel Merrett and Daniel Bradshaw, AFL veteran and Brownlow medalist Jason Akermanis and Australian cricket legend Matthew Hayden have all used Traditional Japanese Acupuncture to maintain or recover their health and well-being, re-charge their batteries, improve their performance and lengthen their careers.

If Traditional Japanese Acupuncture is effective for elite athletes under immense physical, mental and emotional pressure then it stands to reason that there could be significant benefit available for us mere mortals.

Using the underlying treatment rationale of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture a skilled practitioner can work with the Wei Qi (defensive energy/immune system) and Gu Qi (ingestion, assimilation, nourishment and conversion to nutritive energy), influencing the energetic core of our bodies known in an extremely beneficial way.

After commencing regular Traditional Japanese Acupuncture treatment, Olympic swimmer Daniel Kowalski went from suffering repeated viral and bacterial infections that were threatening his ability to compete at the 2000 Olympic Games and compromising his swimming career to enjoying robust good health and a blemish free record not suffering one incident of flu or viral infection during the final three years of his career.

We all have our own personal Olympics on a daily basis, so much to do in so little time and the constant effort of maintaining this cracking pace is definitely taking a toll on the overall health and well-being of many of us in the 21st century.

Practitioners of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture are trained to harmonize and balance the bodies’ energy with the aim of reinforcing improved health.

This gentle and refined style of acupuncture is not only effective in treating pain and discomfort; it can be an enormously powerful treatment for stress relief and strengthening our immune systems.

Many patients have reported a sense of rejuvenation, increased vitality, improved cold and flu resistance, enhanced sleep and better digestion as a result of treatment.

As astute practitioners of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture your improved health and well-being is our number one treatment priority!



After 10 years of traveling to Brisbane to avoid a debilitating overdose of the Coolangatta to Brisbane peak hour commute, I have revised my schedule and invited Efrat Sudai to practice from my rooms at the Queensland Sports Medicine Centre on Tuesday mornings.

Efrat has been an outstanding student of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture since the beginning of the century.

After several years of study, intensive on the job training and clinical practice, she has evolved into a fully accredited, extremely talented and highly skilled practitioner.

Allowing Efrat to treat me is extreme testimony to her skill and proficiency, I am massively particular about who practices Acupuncture on me!

Specializing in Pre-and Post Natal Care, Pediatric Acupuncture, Natural Fertility and IVF patient support programs, Efrat is totally committed to the health and well being of her clients.

Her recruitment is a wonderful plus for the center, as yet another talented practitioner joins the awesome team at the Queensland Sports Medicine Center.

This change will mean increased longevity in practice for me, extended appointment times and more treatment options for you.

I will continue to be available for treatment Tuesday afternoons, all day Thursdays and Saturday mornings.

Efrat will be available for treatment Tuesday mornings from 8:30 a.m.

How sweet it is that Efrat was able to return the favor as  described above.

Sunday night and as darkness falls, lightning is cracking and thunder rolling as an early spring storm rolls in.
