Community Acupuncture FAQ

What is community acupuncture?

Community acupuncture is a clinic where acupuncture treatments take place in a comfortable group setting instead of a private room.

It’s a way of experiencing the benefits of acupuncture at a much lower cost than a private session.

In our community acupuncture clinic, you’ll find a very friendly and inclusive atmosphere where treatments take place in reclining armchairs and friends and family are welcome to come together and receive treatment at the same time.

Benefits of community acupuncture

Community acupuncture makes treatments more affordable and easily accessible — which empowers people to take better care of their health instead of waiting to get sick.

Apart from the benefit of very affordable treatments, community acupuncture also offers a social healing experience that’s missing from the “behind closed doors” approach of how we receive healthcare today.

Is it private?

Being treated in a shared space means that you will be seen and may be overheard by others who are receiving treatment at the same time.

With community acupuncuture, there is no need to undress as only your arms and legs are exposed during treatment.

If you feel uncomfortable about this then community acupuncture may not be suitable for you. Please contact us to book a private appointment instead.

Remember, you don’t have to tell your practitioner anything that you prefer to keep private.

From time-to-time, our clinic may host medical students from RMIT University, Torrens University and Endeavour College of Natural Health as we support the training of future doctors of Chinese medicine. If you prefer not to have a student involved in your consultation simply let us know.

What should I wear?

There’s no need to get undressed for community acupuncture or meridian massage.

Please come wearing suitable loose clothing so that your arms, legs, hands and feet can be easily exposed while you are sitting in an armchair.

Meridian Massage

Meridian massage appointments are available with Jack Logan at our Prahran clinic. You can book a meridian massage by itself (20/40/60 mins) or as a co-treatment together with our Chinese medicine practitioners.

Jack Logan

Jack is a qualified shiatsu practitioner from the Australian Shiatsu College (Dip. Shiatsu & Oriental Therapies) who believes in using a hands on approach to move tension and deepen relaxation.

He uses meridian massage techniques to stimulate the acupuncture channels and points, as well as muscles, tendons and soft tissues to balance the internal organs.

Jack is particularly interested in working with health issues that deplete energy, including people who are recovering from chemotherapy, chronic fatigue, stress and anxiety.

As well as being a passionate practitioner of meridian massage, Jack brings his knowledge of physical therapy with a decade of experience in yoga (qualified 200 hr Hatha Yoga Teacher, 2017) and currently trains in Ziran Qigong.
