Ferntree Gully Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine

Call 8719 7373 or Book Online

Ferntree Gully Acupuncture is located in the newly established, modern, Balanced Life Health Care Clinic. The Acupuncture we use is a specialized technique called Advanced Neurological Acupuncture, a rarely mastered advanced practice of treatment, results in the patient being able to feel an instant effect within under a minute of the needles being placed into the body. Needles are placed distally to the area of complaint, and all treatments can be performed while the patient  fully clothed. The only parts of the body needed are the elbows to fingers, knees to toes, and the head. This style of treatment shows the true power of what Acupuncture is actually capable of, and begins to correct the cause of the problem from the first treatment.



Advanced Neurological Acupuncture offers instant pain relief, and is the quickest of allowing the body a complete recovery. Once the correct course of treatments have been complete, the patient is able to finish treatments as the true underlying cause of the problem has been corrected, and the body is now able to heal itself. This is the case not only for physical issues, but also internal issues, both acute and chronic.
