Single sessions

The initial consultation and acupuncture treatment is 1.5 hrs ($125). Follow-up single acupuncture sessions are $90 for 50 mins-1hr. Herbal consultation follow-ups are $70 (30 mins).  

Herbal medicine

Raw herbs are the most frequently-prescribed form of herbal medicine – usually decocted at home into a medicinal tea. The cost is usually around $5-6 per day. Other forms of herbal medicine may include water-soluble granules, capsules, liquids, syrups, pills, powders, sports gels and linaments, plasters, creams and ointments.  

Children’s acupuncture and herbal consultations

The initial consultation can be shortened or split between two sessions, depending on the attention span of your child.  I often ask parents to bring a written history of relevant problems and concerns so this can mean less talking while your child is in the room.

Sessions are charged according to time taken: 50 mins $9030 mins $7015 mins $45 For regular ongoing treatment, quick top-ups can be scheduled between longer visits. These are packaged accordingly to make treatment very affordable and convenient. Herbal medicines are usually dispensed as raw herbs, ranging from $1-$4 per day depending on the age and size of your child. Other forms of medicine include ready-made pills, syrups, creams and ointments.  As I source these from various suppliers, they are charged according to the product.  

Cancellation policy

You must provide at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or re-schedule your appointment, otherwise a cancellation fee of 100% applies. I contribute these fees to the “Giving Tree”, which allows me to offer reduced-fee treatments to pensioners and others on low incomes.  

The “Giving Tree”

This program allows those on low incomes to access my services that would otherwise be out of their financial reach. The program is applied on an individual basis and tailored to suit each specific situation. Please contact me if you are on a pension or other low-income arrangement to find out more.
