Acupuncture is a unique art, which from the outside looking in seems very bizarre, but has been part of traditional chinese medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. Acupuncture at Quay Health in Sydney’s CBD is not only used for pain but for other things such as: emotional imbalances, digestive disorders and fatigue, just to name a few. If the flow of energy in the meridians becomes blocked, or there is an inadequate supply of it, then the body fails to maintain harmony, balance, and order. Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points to restore balance and let the body heal itself.
Acupuncture can have an effect on the entire body or on a localised area. Acupuncture does not need to be painful, but is a deeply relaxing therapy. At Quay Health Sydney, Acupuncture can be used to help you overcome chronic pain, hormonal disorders, musculoskeletal injuries and immunity concerns.

Darren has had a very fortunate and diverse career with the privilege of being taught and work with some of the best Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor’s in the business, including Dr Daniel Deng and Dr Richard Tan. Both of these doctor’s have their own unique methods, which Darren has been fortunate to learn and be certified in.
As well as being trained in traditional methods, Darren works closely with practitioners from other disciplines, including chiropractors and podiatrists. He is of the firm belief that the western medical profession can learn from Traditional Chinese Medicine and vice-versa.
