Tension can be one of those issues that decide to hang around and cause a fuss. We say give it the flick once and for all by getting an acupuncture treatment in Melbourne asap. This ancient treatment is part of the Chinese medicine tradition dating back about 3,000 years and promises to get your qi (or chi) energy flowing again. Your practitioner will look at your health holistically and decide the best course of treatment. Expect a few treatments in succession upfront followed by less regular visits long-term.
Essentially what we're going for is an easy, seamless wellness experience. We'd love to help you out, whether that's your next Alternative Therapy appointment or our best spa recommendation.

Acupuncture is an excellent option for those who suffer from chronic pain, migraine, mental health problems, insomnia, allergies, fertility issues and as a preventative measure to boost your immune system.
Intense exercise, coffee and alcohol should be avoided after acupuncture. It is also important to prioritise rest, hydration and nutritious food to relieve inflammation.
It depends on how you respond to the treatment and what your acupuncturist advises, but it's good to get a few appointments in at the beginning to help kick start your healing. Expect possibly once a week for a few weeks before decreasing the frequency.
Acupuncture doesn't need to hurt to be effective so talk to your practitioner if you do feel any pain during treatment. Some people may experience mild soreness for about 24 hours after the treatment where the needles were inserted.
Everybody is different, but you should start to see results following your first couple of treatments.
