Acu-Fit Health + Wellbeing

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Practitioners in Thirroul, Wollongong and Shell Cove, NSW.

Hi! My name is Eamon O’Connor and I am a Licensed and Registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner based in the beautiful coastal town of Thirroul, NSW.

Let me introduce to you Acu-Fit Acupuncture!

We are a family practice that opened it’s doors to the Northern Suburbs of the Illawarra in 2016. 

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has touched my mother Jane’s and my life in such a profound way that we had to study it, master it and share it with our community.

If you scroll down you will be able to see more of who we are and how we came to treat people.

Acupuncture changed our lives. We know for a fact it can do the same for you. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort look no further, Acu-Fit is the solution for you.

IF 2019 is looking the same way 2018 did- it is time to make a change!

Eamon’s Story

Eamon O’Connor

In 2009, I slipped 2 discs in my back whilst training in the gym. After months of conventional methods: physiotherapy and visiting the chiropractor my doctor recommended I try cortisone injections.. I knew I had to take a different approach.  This injury led me to trying Acupuncture, changing my life and embarking on a 4 year degree where I traveled to Beijing to work and intern in a Chinese hospital. (imagine what it could to you).

The amount of patients I saw clinically showed me the power of this medicine and its ability to transform people’s lives.

I found Acupuncture almost a decade ago and I have never looked back.  I’ve been looking for natural solutions to our health problems my whole life and now I’m in Thirroul and the Illawarra-region looking to help others get their healths and their lives back.

Being Healthy, Happy & Strong is what drives and motivates me. What I want for myself I want for others. The approach of Acu-Fit is to identify what works best for the individual and find a treatment plan which works best for you. Not John, Margaret or Paul- YOU.

I believe we are all capable of feeling amazing day-in & day-out. But sometimes in life, we get hit with a really challenging period. Whether it’s a painful back stopping you from exercising, or a bout of IBS that doesn’t feel like ever resolving- our body’s are telling us we need to take a comprehensive approach to support it while resolving the ailments. If we work by a bandaid approach of stretching every other month, or having a salad on Wednesday, we won’t get results- it takes real work.  But the results can be game-changing.

Having been in your shoes before- I know You don’t want BS you want results.  The difference between this clinic and others, is we get that.  You don’t want to be spending your afternoon reading an Acupuncture brochure or scouring the internet for information for home remedies for migraines, you want to be pain be free and enjoying your life.

Lucky for you Acupuncture and pain-free are synonymous with each other 🙂

If you suffer from neck pain or back pain and you’ve been actively seeking help from a medical professional for it-

Answer me this: Do you feel amazing?

If the answer is no and your recovery has plateaued or your life isn’t where you want it to be- it is time to try Acupuncture. Today. Now. 🙂

Jane’s Story

My name is Jane Beniac, the newest member of the Acu-Fit team. I am an AHPRA registered Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbal Medicine Practitioner, based in the Thirroul Acu-Fit Holistic Wellness Centre.

I came to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine following an arthritic condition in my hands that caused excruciating pain and clawing of my fingers.  The pain and degeneration of my fingers was so invasive in my life that I was willing to try anything.

In 2012, a hand specialist recommended that I break each of the bones in my fingers and hands and insert steel rods in place in order to make them heal straight. Needless to say, an invasive operation on my hands with no certainty of success, left me disillusioned and concerned.

Seeing what tremendous results my son Eamon had experienced with Acupuncture and Chinese medicine I believe it could do the same for me.

7 years later… I am pain-free and a Practitioner of Chinese Medicine.

If it can work for me, it can work for YOU.

The diversity of patients and conditions that I have seen over the last four years has highlighted the power behind the medicine and its ability to improve quality of life.

I am motivated by seeing people return to the things they like to do and, generally being able to enjoy and make lifestyle changes that improve their quality of life. If you feel that you are ready to try a new treatment option give us a call at Acu-Fit.
