Can I claim my treatment with private health insurance?
In Australia, most private health funds pay a rebate for acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and therapeutic massage treatments. Whether you are covered or not depends on the level of cover that you have. The practitioners at the Chinese Medicine Centre are all registered with most private health funds.
What payment methods are accepted?
Treatments are usually paid at the end of the treatment. You can pay by EFTPOS, cash or cheque. If you have a private health fund, please bring your card and we can claim your rebate on the spot (HICAPS).
Is there free parking at your centre?
There is free on-street parking in Main Street. Patients are welcome to park on the road verge or in our driveway.
How often should I come for treatment?
Usually, most patients will need to come for a few treatments. Initially, treatments will be ideally one week apart. As your condition improves, you may only come in fortnightly or monthly.
How will I feel after my treatment?
Many patients report a feeling of floating and/or lightness, or heaviness and/or tiredness after an acupuncture treatment. This is the result of the energetic flow changing in your body and will only last for a few hours.
When will I see improvements in my condition?
In many cases your condition will start to improve after the first consultation. It is common to feel a worsening of your condition for a few hours, sometimes up to a day. This is usually a good sign and in most cases your condition will improve shortly afterwards.
