Multi Bed Acupuncture Clinic

A Multi-Bed Acupuncture clinic is run from a large room with multiple acupuncture beds, separated by thick curtains, allowing multiple clients to be treated at once. This allows for cost effective and more accessible treatments. At this stage no bookings are necessary and Jing is a drop in clinic for acupuncture, however in the future we will take bookings.

Acupuncture can treat a wide range of issues from muscular skeletal complaints, to hormonal and digestive complaints. If you would like to chat with one of our staff about whether acupuncture will be helpful for you feel free to call us on (03) 9737 6922.

Our principle practitioners have both worked in multi bed hospitals and clinics in both China and India.  Our Multi bed clinic is modelled after the current system in China, where cost- and patient- effective treatment models have evolved over the centuries to the current practice whereby patients usually receive acupuncture treatment in large rooms containing several beds, at a cost effective price.

In order to be effective for certain complaints, acupuncture is best performed intensively. With a multi bed system people can afford to come as regularly as they need, in China many come every other day, and many can also afford to utilise two therapies at the same time.

An additional private room is used to take the initial case history if the patient would like to discuss issues that feel too personal to talk about within earshot of other patients.

Acupuncture for Relaxation, Stress reduction & Anxiety

Acupuncture for stress relief and energetic balancing differs from acupuncture treatments for painful muscular skeletal disorders.

The needles are left in for  20 – 30 minutes during an adrenal and nervous system re-balancing treatment. During this time the body goes into a deep state of relaxation, studies have shown that cortisol, your stress hormone drops (1) and the body temperature may lower, similar to when your in deep sleep. Organ systems, heart beat and respiration may also slow down due to the affects it has on relaxing the nervous system and muscle tension dissipates. In most cases you will sink into a brain wave 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.

Research has shown that Acupuncture causes the body to release neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopmaine 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 Auricular (ear) Seeds are sometimes used along with your acupuncture treatment. The entire body is treatable via the stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. Similar mappings are used in reflexology and iridology.

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