What to expect at our Brisbane acupuncture practice

When you first come in, Margi will take time to understand your current state of health as well as your health history.

her aim is to unearth what others may have not considered.

Working with you, Margi will design a program that aims to achieve your wellbeing goals through acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, Gua Sha, dietary work, Tui Na bodywork, and sometimes herbs and lifestyle advice.

Treatments with her are tailored to your unique constitution.

  • A thorough assessment using the Chinese medicine framework
  • A treatment program as unique as you
  • Frequent reviews and fine-tuning
  • Practical advice to take home – dietary changes, exercises, stretches and more

What happens during a treatment?

Once you lay down on our massage tables, you are invited to relax, close your eyes, meditate and even fall asleep.

Margi will select points according to your Chinese medicine diagnosis and leave the acupuncture needles in for 20 to 40 minutes.

It all depends on the protocol she is following at the time of your treatment.

Does acupuncture hurt? And other questions …

That depends on what’s happening with you at the time of your treatment.

We can chat about your current situation when you come in for your first appointment.

Know that acupuncture needles are very fine: much thinner than a syringe or even a dressmaker pin.

To maximise patient comfort, we use guide tubes when inserting.
