Since 2006, Qi Medicine has conducted over 9,000 individual acupuncture treatments, working hard to help address clients health and wellness concerns.

Qi Medicine was founded by Dr. Sheena Vaughan (Chinese medicine) in 2006 in Melbourne, Victoria. We have grown from a small practice to a large clinic over the years, treating just about every health issue one could think of along the way! Qi Medicine has now grown to help train several student practitioners and takes pride in passing down skills and knowledge to emerging Doctors of Chinese medicine. Qi Medicine should be your first choice for acupuncture in Moonee Ponds.

Doctor Sheena Vaughan (Chinese medicine and acupuncture)

 

Acupuncture in Moonee Ponds

“It is my professional mission to help people free themselves from pain, stress and helplessness. I achieve this by listening, being honest and empowering people to take control.”

 

Hi, I’m Dr. Sheena Vaughan (Chinese medicine) the principal therapist at Qi Medicine.

 

Congratulations on the decision to take action on your health; it is the most precious thing you own. You are probably here because you have a long-standing health issue you are ready to move past.

 

Whether it is niggling pain, digestive problems or ongoing skin complaints, you are ready to make some positive health changes. I can help provide gentle solutions for your health concerns with methods including acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, cupping therapy and cosmetic acupuncture. 

 

As a therapist, I have a special interest in treating women’s health, hormonal and skin issues. This also ties into my passion for cosmetic acupuncture and facial rejuvenation, something I have been practicing for many years in the clinic. I also like to help people naturally overcome sciatica, lower back pain, shoulder and neck pain, plus many other muscle and joint issues. Because we humans are a bit complex (our health being no exception), I place great importance on listening and recognising what is going on in your world. This will help you understand the causes of your health issues, from which we can formulate your individual treatment plan.

 

If there a few small tweaks or some big life changes you are seeking help with then I am always available to have a chat about how I could help you.
