Q. Does Acupuncture hurt?

A. No. People are consistently surprised that acupuncture is usually painless when done by an experienced, gentle practitioner. If there is a sensation felt, it may be like a mosquito bite. Usually people find the treatment very relaxing, and most people fall asleep during the session. We also provide needle-free treatment using a low-level medical laser & finger pressure. These are also painless.

Q. What if that is too expensive for me?

A.

  • We charge by the time spent, so the time spent can be minimised as much as possible at the discretion of the practitioner.
  • Are you concession eligible?
  • Do you have private health extras cover? We have HICAPS so only the gap is payable.
  • Chinese herbs are very inexpensive so may be a good option; the practitioner will let you know if so.
  • Have a 15 minute Health Assessment Consultation with Dr. Elaine Hickman. She will answer your questions, briefly assess your health and give advice on your health care options.
