Ki Acupuncture Canberra

Located conveniently in Mels Massage in the Next Gen Gym, adjacent to the Canberra Hockey Centre in Lyneham, Ki Acupuncture is a clinic with a difference. Our highly trained, registered practitioners work one-on-one so you get undivided focus and exceptional personalized service. The approach of giving each client their whole focus allows our acupuncturists time for a thorough consultation and the ability to treat multiple conditions simultaneously. This comprehensive approach can mean faster results and a reduction in the total number of treatments required.

From public servants to professional athletes in Canberra and surrounding areas, our clients appreciate our gentle and natural approach to healthcare. From pain relief to pregnancy, and many things in between, we offer a natural way to help your body return to a sustainable state of health.

With three talented and experienced practitioners, our fields of expertise include back pain, sports injuries, rehabilitation, overuse injuries, headaches, migraines, stroke rehabilitation, fertility difficulties, digestive upset, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, hay fever management, depression, stress and anxiety.

For those not sure if acupuncture is an appropriate or effective treatment for their specific condition, we offer no cost, no obligation 15-minute evaluation consultations. We can answer any questions you have about what will happen during the treatment, how many treatments will be necessary and how soon you’re likely to get improvements. Once you know your options, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about moving forward.

At Ki Acupuncture we were honoured in 2016 and 2017 to be finalists in the Telstra Australian Business Awards. We love what we do, we do it well and the judges thought so too.

What is acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a medical science that has been practiced, developed and refined for over two thousand years.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of ultra fine, single-use, disposable needles into specific sites on the body, sending signals to the brain which in turn effects a change in the body.

Has it been tested?

Originating in China, acupuncture has spread across the globe and been the focus of thousands of scientific research papers. There are over 7,300 randomised controlled trials focused on the study of acupuncture in the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.

In 2012 Acupuncture in Australia became a registered Allied Health profession under the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency.
