Our Traditional and Modern Acupuncture Services


At our clinic, we apply acupuncture according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and modern anatomical theory. Ken is an AHPRA registered acupuncturist and has also trained in motor point acupuncture and trigger point dry needling.

How can acupuncture help my condition?


Acupuncture is suitable for a wide range of conditions. At our clinic we have a special interest in the treatment of musculoskeletal issues and pain management, such as lower back pain, knee pain, neck and shoulder pain, jaw pain and many other painful conditions. Besides, Ken has seen clients with complaints ranging from hay fever, menopausal hot flushes, urinary health issues to stress management.

What can I expect during a treatment?


Every acupuncture treatment is tailored to suit you. After an initial assessment, Ken will discuss your treatment with you. You may receive a blend of acupuncture and remedial massage techniques. Often further modalities such as cupping, moxibustion and electrostimulation will be added for an enhanced effect. A treatment takes up to 60 minutes and this time is exclusively dedicated to you.


How many Acupuncture sessions do I need?


Ken will recommend a treatment plan for you. For some acute musculoskeletal complaints, one treatment plus a follow up may be all you need. For chronic or longer lasting health complaints, Ken will give you an estimate of treatments needed after the first assessment.


Acupuncture or Dry Needling?


The distinction between acupuncture and dry needling can be blurry. The most important thing to know is that dry needling most definitely is a form of acupuncture but acupuncture encompasses a lot more than just dry needling. The Standard International Acupuncture Nomenclature (1) defines Trigger point needling, i.e. dry needling, as a subset of acupuncture.


In modern practice, acupuncture and dry needling use the same needles, use similar points and needling techniques, and involve the same biological mechanisms (2). As a licensed acupuncturist, registered with AHPRA, Ken performs dry needling as well as advanced acupuncture techniques according to Chinese medicine.

Can I claim health funds for my treatment?


​Yes, if you have a private health cover. Our treatments can be claimed on the spot. The individual contributions vary depending on health funds.
