Acupuncture in Melbourne & Other Natural Treatments for Health & Wellbeing

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice of acupuncture has been used around the world for promoting health and wellbeing for more than 2000 years. At Melbourne Acupuncture & Wellness Centre, we offer acupuncture in Melbourne to support better health and wellbeing.

If you’re experiencing physical health issues or problems relating to mood, Chinese acupuncture may offer respite from some symptoms such as pain, stress and nausea.

Acupuncture – How Does It Work?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world. Today, it is used by people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.

Central to any concept in Traditional Chinese Medicine is the idea of Qi. Qi is the energy that flows freely throughout our bodies through a system of channels called the meridians. However, this free flow of energy can be hindered by blockages and obstacles that may result in sickness and soreness. By opening up the meridians and clearing up the blockages through the use of acupuncture, we aim to improve health and wellness.

For over 17 years, Farzaneh Ghaffari has practised Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in Melbourne. Farzaneh has a degree in Chinese Medicine from RMIT in Melbourne and a 1 year clinical internship in Nanjing, China. She is registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
