Eastern Medicine - Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

An initial evaluation to obtain a history and examine you is necessary. Stephen will discuss your condition and the options for treatment. He will let you know the degree to which he thinks he may help you. Stephen suggests that we take it one treatment at a time. If after each treatment you are not feeling that you are improving then you can discuss this with him. Stephen is not a fan of booking people in for 10 or 20 treatments and believes that each and every appointment should take you closer to your health goal with a perceived improvement.

What can I expect to happen at my first treatment?

Your first appointment will include an in depth questionnaire that can be downloaded from and a frank discussion on things that can be done to assist you in your healing. You will then be offered an Acupuncture treatment with or without needles ( Laser or other methods) and possible massage or Shiatsu techniques to get you humming again.

Are the treatments offered covered by Medicare, work cover or health fund rebates?

Meicare does not cover Acupuncture at this stage but almost all health funds do offer cover for part or all of the treatment, please see you fund.Some even offer it for Herbal Medicine.
