I have always been afraid of needles. Will acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very fine. In fact, they are not much thicker than hair. When they are inserted, you may feel a minor prick (like a mosquito bite). Once the needles are in, you may not feel anything at all. Sometimes you feel a slight aching sensation or tingling but this is usually for a short duration and can often feel like the needles are communicating with each other! Overall, acupuncture is incredibly relaxing.

Will I bleed after acupuncture?

Generally there is no bleeding or bruising after acupuncture as the needles are very fine and are not inserted into blood vessels. The acupuncture points are located on energy channels throughout the body.

Is there an optimal time in my Cycle to start Chinese Medicine for fertility?

No. The sooner the better. Initially, you will receive weekly sessions to correct any imbalances in your energy (Qi), blood, and organ systems. Then the sessions will focus more on ovulation time and when your period is due. The key to fertility is a balanced, healthy body, so the sooner you begin our treatment program, the better chance you have to fall pregnant

How long will it take me to fall pregnant?

There is no definitive answer to this question as, regardless of whether you are trying to fall pregnant naturally or through IVF, we are dealing with nature. Some women fall pregnant on the first cycle they start treatment and for others, it will be longer. You can improve your chances of pregnancy by following all the advice of your practitioner, having a healthy diet, an active lifestyle, and reducing stress.

Can I get a rebate for my services through Medicare?

No, but rebates are available for some of our services if you have private health cover with extras. Please contact your provider to find out if you are covered and how much your rebate will be. We have HICAPS at the clinic, so, if you are eligible, you can claim your rebate on-the-spot.

How long are the consultation times?

This will vary depending upon the treatment you are having. For an initial fertility TCM consultation, please allow for be at least 1hour 20mins, with follow-up treatments approximately 1 hour. For more straight forward acupuncture treatments, such as a sprained ankle, the initial treatment will be approximately 1 hour. Initial Kinesiology sessions take about 1hour 15mins with a follow-up treatment of 1 hour. Our massage sessions vary from 1-2 hours, depending on your requirements.

Can I drive after my treatment?

Yes, there is no reason why you would not be able to drive after receiving any of our treatments.
