Welcome to this space. Our registered Chinese medicine practitioner at Medifirst Family Clinic in Clayton, Victoria is happy to meet you in person, discuss your symptoms and signs to provide an overall health assessment. In Chinese medicine, we take a holistic approach scanning for imbalances in the body to customise a treatment plan for you. Lifestyle and diet advices will be provided during the initial consultation. We want you to feel supported and empowered during your healing process.
We use acupuncture needles, usually combined with heat, cupping, Tuina or herbal medicines to treat the underlying condition. The cost of general acupuncture is $80 for one hour; $100 for 75 minutes and $120 for 90 minutes (and you are able to claim some of it back from major private health insurance companies), for a list of services and related costs please refer to our Pricing page. If your condition is complicated, please consider and request a 90 minutes consul + treatment package.
Our patients' comfort level is very important to us. Only ultra thin, top quality sterile disposable stainless steel needles are used for best therapeutic results. The Korean brand is widely used in worldly renowned hospitals (eg. Tzu Chi hospitals). Seirin needles are used in our facial acupuncture, and they are the most expensive brand in the industry for its impeccable craftsmanship. This sets us apart from other clinics. Our practitioner is also trained in aromatherapy and Reiki and is able to treat with her multi-modality approach.
