Multi Bed Acupuncture Clinic


Acupuncture in a multi-bed clinic

A multi-bed acupuncture clinic is a large room with multiple acupuncture beds. These beds are separated by thick curtains. Hence the multiple beds allow several clients to be treated at the same time. As a result treatments become cost-effective and more accessible. Book online via the Bookings page or by contacting us on (03) 9737 6922.

Acupuncture can treat a wide range of issues from

  • musculoskeletal issues to
  • hormonal and
  • digestive complaints.

Both our principal practitioners have worked in multi-bed hospitals and clinics in China and India. Our multi-bed clinic is modelled after the current system in China. There cost- and patient-effective treatment models have evolved over the centuries to the current practice.

Certain complaints benefit most from intensive acupuncture. In China many come for treatment every other day. A multi-bed setup is affordable so that people can come as regularly as they need. Another advantage of this model is that people can often afford two therapies at the same time.

A separate room is available for the initial case history so that clients can discuss personal issues in private.

Acupuncture for relaxation, stress reduction & anxiety

This acupuncture approach differs from acupuncture treatments for painful musculoskeletal disorders.

In an adrenal and nervous system re-balancing treatment the needles remain in place for  20 – 30 minutes. As a result the body goes into a deep state of relaxation. Studies have shown that our body temperature may consequently lower for the reason that our stress hormone cortisol drops (1). This state is therefore similar to when we are in deep sleep. Likewise, organ systems, heartbeat and even respiration may also slow down. Another aspect is for muscle tension to dissipate. As a result, in most cases you will sink into a brainwave state more conducive to releasing stress and switching off cortisol. We do this with the aid of far infrared heat lamps and headphones that play relaxing music.

Most noteworthy, research has certainly shown that as a consequence of acupuncture the body releases neurotransmitters such as

  • endorphins,
  • dopamine and
  • serotonin.

Endorphins are the body’s natural opiates that relieve pain and increase your relaxation response. (2)

For acute, chronic or poor stress-handling we may use auricular (ear) seeds along with your acupuncture treatment. The entire body is treatable via the stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. Reflexology and iridology use similar mapping.

Research findings have concluded that auricular acupuncture decreases anxiety levels.(3)
