Patients, too, who have suffered from knee and joint pain or neck and shoulder pain have benefited from the capacity of Japanese Acupuncture to reduce inflammation and restore healthy functioning.

Sports Injuries | Sports Performance

Alan works with both elite sports people and anyone else who suffers from sports injuries such as tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, broken arms/legs, golfer’s elbow or ankle sprains.

Many elite sports people, from a wide range of sports such as tennis, football, rowing, triathlon, skiing and swimming, have received acupuncture from Alan to enhance their sports performance.

Stress and Anxiety

Alan’s acupuncture treatment for stress and anxiety helps patients to restore balance to their bodies and their daily lives.

The gentle and calming effect of Japanese acupuncture has incredible restorative power that enables patients to overcome the debilitating effects of stress and anxiety such as digestion problems, insomnia, disturbed sleep or tightness in the neck, shoulders or back.

Immune Deficiencies

One of the great benefits of Japanese Acupuncture is its ability to strengthen a person’s immune system and speed up the natural healing processes of the body.

Alan has used this inherent power of acupuncture to treat chronic fatigue particularly in adolescents and elite athletes. His acupuncture treatments have also proven effective for immune deficiencies such as colds and flu, pneumonia, asthma and post-viral syndrome.

Acupuncture for Fertility

Japanese Acupuncture as a gentle form of treatment is very suitable for women’s health issues such as infertility and related IVF treatment, problems with pregnancy, natural birth assistance, menstrual pain and overall pre- and post-natal care.

Alan has treated many appreciative women over more than 20 years who have gained real and lasting benefits from his acupuncture treatments for women’s health issues.

Paediatric Treatments

A gentle approach such as Japanese Acupuncture is needed for the treatment of babies, infants and young children.

Alan’s sensitive and humorous manner engages infants and children and enables them to gain maximum benefit from their acupuncture treatment.

I highly recommend Acupuncture Brisbane to those who are suffering with chronic fatigue, stress, menstrual issues or pain and to book in to see Owen for acupuncture. My ongoing fatigue, pain and energy have all significantly improved after just two sessions. Owen is highly experienced, listens intently to his patients concerns and offers his knowledge to all patients to set them on the right path to their recovery.

I fell on my back and broke 2 vertebrae. Months after I was still in pain. Had pain everyday. I tried 3 different physios, one made it worse. I tried prolotherapy, nothing worked. Then I saw an acupuncturist while visiting my parents in Europe. He said, if you're in Australia you gotta see Alan. How far are you from Brisbane/Gold Coast? 4 sessions over 2 months solved the pain I'd been having for 2 years. Alan and Anna, it's been life changing. Thank you so much for your help but also for your kindness. All the best, Francisco

I feel Alan literally saved my life. I was suffering severe pain, compromised mobility and cronic fatigue that was affecting every aspect of my life and work, all from Ross River Disease. After my first appointment I had all of my movement back and NO PAIN. Bloody amazing!! I had a few more follow ups which were great! I cant recommend Alan and his team more!!

I just wanted to thank you for your magical treatment of my frozen shoulder/bursitis. I met you with an incredibly painful shoulder which I held limp against my body and it rendered me useless in many ways. I supplied X-rays and MRI scan results then you went to work. I had been prescribed anti inflammatories which in conjunction with your gentle manipulation got the shoulder moving again after the first consultation. I have never had acupuncture before and after talking to a mutual friend who referred me to you, I am definitely convinced that this therapy really works. So after three visits to QSMC and you, I am 75% cured and well on my way to a full recovery. Again a big thank you to Owen. Kindest regards, John

Owen has relieved my hip bursitis when everything else I have tried has failed. My next step was cortisone treatment & I'm so glad to have avoided that. His systemic treatment has also improved my sleep now that I'm pain free. Highly recommend Owen.
