If you are:
then a comprehensive assessment consult is what you need.
Your practitioner will gather information about your health concerns and discuss your health history in detail. Questions about your sleeping habits, energy levels, digestion, pain etc will help to paint a complete health history. Any medications or supplements that you are taking will be noted on your file, and will be taken into account when designing your treatment. Details of your previous treatments and how they have impacted your health (including any prior treatment you may have had with us) will also be gathered. Your practitioner will discuss with you the ways in which acupuncture, Chinese medicine and nutritional medicine can help to address your health concerns, and will create a comprehensive treatment plan that will to help you to achieve your health goals.
Comprehensive assessment $160
Comprehensive assessment with our senior practitioner: Clare Pyers $250
Clare’s area of interest is complex women’s health, and fertility support. Book with Clare if you want her additional level of expertise in the construction of your treatment plan.
After your comprehensive assessment, you and your practitioner will work together to implement your treatment plan. This will involve monitoring the progress in your condition, and adjusting your treatment accordingly. As a general rule, we can’t help you resolve your health concerns in a single acupuncture treatment, or with a single herbal prescription. Our appointments are structured in packs of 5 and 10 to better reflect the amount of time it is likely to take in order to help you achieve your health goals. Your practitioner will discuss the likely timeframe for your treatment in your initial assessment appointment, and following the entire treatment plan set out for you by your practitioner will give you the best opportunity for achieving your health goals. We offer single appointments for ongoing care for those people who prefer to pay as they go, rather than commit to a treatment plan.
Consultation : $110
5x consultations: $485 ($97 each) valid for up to 6 months
10x consultations: $900 ($90 each) valid for up to 12 months
During your assessment appointment, it might become apparent that you require more than a single consult in order to address your health condition. For those who will likely need ongoing treatment over a period of several months, Clare will offer to work with you on a 3 or 6 month treatment plan. Clare will guide you through your personalized treatment plan for the full duration of your program. She will:
– Monitor your response and adjust your treatment as you progress
– Conduct detailed discussion of test results and make adjustments to your treatment as indicated
– 6 review consults over 3 months/13 consults over 6 months (Clare will advise you which you need)
– Clare will only work with a small number of patients at a time so you get her full attention
– Email Clare in between consults to get prescriptions and advice for unexpected health needs (eg infection, injury, sudden change in your condition)

We frequently see babies, toddlers and older children at the clinic who have a wide range of acute and chronic health issues. Appointment times are typically much shorter than for adults, and we often use laser acupuncture and press-on needle treatments that are much quicker to administer. Our appointments are structured in packs of 5 and 10 to better reflect the amount of time it is likely to take to help address your child’s health goals. Your practitioner will discuss the likely timeframe for your treatment in your initial assessment appointment. We offer single appointments for ongoing care for those people who prefer to pay as they go, rather than commit to a treatment plan.
Initial assessment $90
5x consultations $310 ($62 each) valid for up to 6 months
10x consultations $500 ($50 each) valid for up to 12 months
Our open room sessions help to make regular acupuncture affordable for our patients. Treatments are conducted in our open room space, where we can treat multiple patients, allowing for quicker visits to the clinic. Patients remain clothed, and receive acupuncture and relax quietly in the shared healing space. Although not essential, for best results we recommend you have a private initial consultation to ensure a thorough health history is received and the practitioner understands your condition completely.
Open Room Acupuncture Treatment $40
Concession (unemployed, student, pensioner) $27.50
Gift Vouchers are a fantastic way to give the gift of health and vitality to someone in your life. They are valid for any product or service at the clinic and are valid for 6 months from date of purchase.
For appointments that commence at 5pm or later on a weekday, or for any appointment on a weekend, a small surcharge of $10 applies ($5 for open room). This is to account for the popular demand of these appointments, and to acknowledge the time our practitioners spend away from their families.
Many of our practitioners are booked ahead of time, and we often have patients on a waiting list for earlier appointments. We appreciate as much notice as possible if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, so that we may allocate the appointment to another patient.
A cancellation fee applies where less than 24 hours notice is given to cancel or reschedule an appointment, or if you miss your appointment. Fee is $50 for less than 24 hours notice, the full consultation fee is charged for less than 4 hours notice, and for missed appointments. For Open Room sessions, the full consultation fee applies for cancellations and rescheduled appointments, and for missed appointments with less than 24 hours notice.
