Acupuncture is a healing system based on energy principles and anatomy. In Chinese Medicine, energy or qi (often called the vital force in the West) is believed to flow along pathways called meridians. This energy should flow in a free and unobstructed way, much like your bloodstream. If there is a blockage, then disease may result.
Acupuncture aims to restore the flow of vital energy in the body for healing and revitalization. Minuscule, hair-thin, sterile needles are used on the acupuncture points in order to re-establish the flow of energy, thereby correcting imbalances, restoring health, and bringing about enhanced states of physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Acupuncture facilitates and supports the body's innate ability to heal itself and to maintain optimal levels of wellness and vitality.
DID YOU EVER WONDER WHY YOU MIGHT NOT LOSE PAIN ?
Back Pain,Maybe Hypercalcemia- Find out more
Back pain is one of the most common medical complaints. A whopping 80% of people in the developed world will see their physician with symptoms of back pain, at some point in their lives. It is a leading cause of missed workdays and temporary disability.
It comes in many forms and presents in multiple ways. The back has many muscles, tendons and ligaments. Each may attach to the vertebral column that surround and protect the spinal cord. All of these structures may, at some point, become injured or through chronic neglect, inflamed or irritated. Then there’s the possibility of something called, ‘referred pain’; which may be coming from an internal organ, like the pancreas, spleen, liver or intestines, that when infected, inflamed or blocked, can send pain signals to other areas of the body, most frequently the back.
Hypercalcemia or Calcification is a condition that hardens the blood vessels, in the heart and brain and doesn’t allow healing in the joints and muscles, heart disease, constipation and nausea result because the calcium you take in doesn’t go to the bones. It goes everywhere else except the bones resulting in constant pain and weakness in the joints and bones. Risk of stroke and heart attack elevates.
Please stop wasting your good hard earned money on treatment that keeps you spinning your wheels.
Our Naturopathic Testing can reveal this condition and Peter Damestoy can reverse the condition. Make your bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage strong, reverse arthritis.
Let’s not forget the vertebral column itself, which has many structures, that when, injured or inflamed can send its own pain signals. When the cushiony disk that separates two vertebral bodies is injured (bulges to one side or degenerates), the vertebrae, muscles or ligaments can impinge or press on the nerves, as they come out of the spinal column. Injuries to the spinal column may be quite severe, to the point of paralysis.
There are also structural causes of back pain such as scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis – abnormal curves in the spine that impinge nerves or derange muscle, tendon and ligamentous structures.
- Because the back is so large, pain may present in many different ways, depending on the type of injury, pathology or chronic ailment.
- Persistent aching, stiffness all along the spine and its associated muscles, joints, ligaments and/or tendons
- Sharp, focused pain in the upper, middle or lower back, from improper lifting biomechanics or straining to lift something too heavy, or from an awkward angle
- Radiating pain that starts in the low back and runs down the outside of the buttocks into the legs (perhaps all the way down to the toes)
Recognizing the most common causes of back pain and learning the best ways to move your body safely will greatly reduce the likelihood of injuring your back. Proper lifting techniques, maintaining adequate range of motion, improving strength, flexibility and not sitting for long periods without changing positions will go a long way to improving your back health
Conventional medicine tends to prescribe pain medication for both acute and chronic back pain. Diagnostic imaging may be beneficial for determining the location and extent of an injury (herniated disk, enlarged visceral organs, etc.), though it may not be as helpful in removing underlying issues, such as poor lifting mechanics, workspace environment and the like.
Call Peter on 0428-890333 for your check-up before it’s too late.
Depending on the location, severity and/or root cause of the back pain, treatment may include, herbal anodynes (pain reducing herbs), acupuncture, physical medicine

Headaches and Migraines
Practically everyone in the world has experienced a headache at some point of time. Headaches are distressing because they affect a person's quality of life and work performance.
Headaches are classified into two main types: functional headaches that have no clear cause, for instance migraine or headache during menstruation, and organic headaches, which are caused by inflammation or pressure on the cerebral blood vessels or cranial nerves. This type of headache needs further investigation by a neurologist.
Women are generally more likely to suffer from headaches than men.
Migraine Headaches. Migraines often cause an intense throbbing in the forehead, temple, ear, jaw, or around the eye. It may start behind one eye and spread to all of one side of the head. There may be associated diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting, followed by malaise and a washed-out sensation afterward.
Migraine headaches can be triggered by:
Other Types of Headaches. The most common type of headache is the tension headache. These headaches can last for hours or days. They cause a steady ache around the back of the head and neck, in the forehead, and around the eyes. These headaches are due to tensing of head, neck, and shoulder muscles for a prolonged period of time, usually following a stressful period or because of poor posture.
- Sudden changes in weather
- Emotional stress
- Lack of food
- Grinding teeth
- Sleep problems
- Hormonal changes in the menstrual cycle
- Bright or flickering lights
- Noisy, stuffy, smoky rooms
- High blood pressure
- Certain foods, for example ripened cheese, chocolate, citrus fruit, red wine, sherry, port, MSG, additives, and food colourings.
Hormonal imbalances can also cause headaches. They can occur around menstruation or during the first trimester of pregnancy. Sometimes headaches are due to common cold or persistent coughing. For others, too much food or the wrong kind of food and drink can trigger a headache.
The Orthodox Approach
For the occasional headache, medications such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, aspirin, or codeine may be used to relieve pain. However, it is important not to take pain medication for more than a couple of days a week because you can trigger a "rebound headache," a phenomena caused by the overuse of analgesic medications. In addition, drugs are not advised during pregnancy because they may cross the placenta and harm the unborn child.
By relying on medications, the root cause of your headaches is not addressed. If headaches are persistent and you pop pills regularly we recommend you explore the underlying causes of your headaches with a natural healthcare practitioner.
We will assist you to find the underlying cause of your headaches or migraine. An effective treatment plan can then be put together to relieve the symptoms and reduce the chances of future such headaches occurring.
Acupuncture has proven to be successful in the treatment of headaches and migraines. It has a significant therapeutic effect on symptoms such as pain and the frequency of migraine attacks. A controlled study found that acupuncture was significantly more effective that the control procedure in reducing migraine pain and medication at a 4 months and 1 year follow up.
Acupuncture involves inserting fine, sterile needles into specific areas of the skin to relieve congestion, re-establish the flow of energy and improve blood circulation. It is not painful and most people find it to be an extremely relaxing experience. Pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders respond well to acupuncture. It improves blood flow to these areas and relieves associated muscle spasm.
Chinese herbs are commonly combined with acupuncture to speed up treatment and bring about lasting pain relief. Chinese herbs, which usually derive from the fruit, seeds, bark or leaves of a plant, are carefully selected, according to the person's particular type of headache and underlying causes of headache. Many clients claim that acupuncture and herbs can reduce the intensity and frequency of attacks or cure their headaches completely. Six to eight sessions are usually sufficient to being about a significant improvement.
According to Chinese Medicine, headaches are due to interrupted blood flow in the head area, which is brought on by external and internal pathogenic factors such as weather changes, viral infection, poor diet, flickering lights, anxiety and poor sleep. Within Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are recommended for treatment.
Acupuncture improves blood flow and helps treat the underlying causes of headache. Before commencing an acupuncture treatment, the practitioner will first diagnose the type of headache involved. This depends on when and where the headache occurs, what channels supply that area, and which internal organs may be involved. For instance, pain in the back of the head is related to the bladder channel and pain in the forehead is related to the stomach channel.
When certain foods, hormones, or toxins are involved, then it is also important to regulate organ function such as gastrointestinal or liver function.
Headaches during pregnancy can be treated by balancing the internal organs, improving blood flow to the head, and reducing fatigue.
Other holistic and natural approaches are offered, such as exploring diet, nutrition, and lifestyle factors to effectively treat the underlying causes of headaches and migraines

"I have been recieving Acupuncture Treatments from Peter for over 2 years now. I began going in order to get relief from lower back pain, and to improve my immune system. Because I had bad allergies, he also began treating my sinus area as well. The back is fine now, but I continue to go for treatments because it really clears my sinus area and relieves my allergy symptoms. I believe it has really helped my immune system. Acupuncture does not hurt and is extremely relaxing and restful. I have recommended Peter to my friends with allergies, back pain or chronic pain of any nature."
