Our expert team is experienced in the following areas:
Acupuncture and fertility
Acupuncture and IVF
Qi Medicine is among the few acupuncture clinics near Keilor, in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, to focus on the areas of natural fertility and IVF, Our team is dedicated to helping couples reduce stress through their fertility journey, reducing the impact this may have on their fertility outcomes.
For pregnant couples, our goal is to help promote a healthy pregnancy with stress and pain relief, lifestyle and nutritional advice, and guidance through the entire process.
Most of our therapists are trained in the Fertile Life Method ©, developed by Dr. Kirsten Wolfe.
Each couple is treated individually, and our goal is to uncover the deeper reasons why you may have not yet started a family, and discuss what action you can take to overcome these issues.
Our practitioners will leave ‘no stone unturned’, and perform a thorough 150 point check, assessing the reproductive and gynecological health of both you and your partner.
The information gathered from this check will inform our plan ahead, from which we provide you both with a clear treatment timeline and plan. This helps to reduce the stress associated with fertility, and explain to you in clear terms what is happening each step of the way.
It is our belief that all health professionals have something to offer you on your journey, whether it be your GP, specialist, acupuncturist, gynecologist or massage therapist.
Therefore, we work in conjunction with your health professionals, ensuring all treatments support one another. At the end of the day, the goal of our professional combined efforts is for you to have the highest chances possible at having a baby.
Sadly, the fertility rates set to drop in the coming years in Australia. This appears to be due to women wanting to have babies later in life, which in itself can present a range of challenges. The therapists at Qi Medicine want to see as many babies around the local area as possible, regardless of age!

Acupuncture for endometriosis pain
The pain associated with endometriosis can be unbearable for so many women. Often poorly understood by their loved ones and peers, endometriosis is not your usual ‘menstrual cramps’ which can be alleviated with over the counter pain medication.
We know that there are many women living in Keilor who are suffering from endometriosis pain. Our team is passionate about helping women reduce pain and finally live a more normal, stress-free life, with the help of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
The Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne mentions that endometriosis affects around ten percent of women.
On their website, they go on to say the cause of endometriosis cause is still largely unknown and ‘Some women experience improvement of their symptoms with alternative treatments, the most popular is traditional Chinese medicine and herbal preparations’.
Acupuncture is recommended by many health professionals and clinically proven in many instances to relieve pain. Acupuncture could be an excellent choice for you if you suffer endometriosis pain. Our doctors of Chinese medicine have tailored treatment approaches which may assist provide you with the pain relief you seek.
Skin, arguably, is the one thing we worry over on a daily basis. And as you may be aware, your skin is a reflection of your internal wellbeing.
If your skin is out of balance, then you can be sure there is something not right in your internal body system. These issues can include gut issues, hormonal imbalances, high stress, and so much more.
We believe cosmetic acupuncture to be one of the healthiest, and least damaging skincare treatments available in Melbourne today.
Women in Keilor are becoming more health aware and need something that aligns with their wellness goals to look, feel and live a more natural life.
Cosmetic acupuncture doesn’t rely solely on creams or lotions, we work on the deeper levels of your physical and emotional wellness to achieve results.
How does it work? The treatment works on a number of areas simultaneously; it influences the muscles underneath the skin, plus stimulates the nerves in the face affecting skin health. In addition, skin needling (dermal rolling) can help to boost collagen and cellular turnover in the top skin layer.
We don’t stop there. Using our Chinese medicine know-how, we can help to reduce stress and tension in the body with acupuncture, further relaxing you and enhancing your results.
In addition, we will advise you on diet and lifestyle, so you may work on additional issues such as hormonal imbalance, sleep, and juggling all the demands life places on you.
There are many different ways to look after your skin, but our approach is one of the few to combine internal health and wellbeing with external facial rejuvenation.

Acupuncture in Keilor for sciatica
Sciatica and Back pain are two of the most common reasons people will seek acupuncture treatment.

Acupuncture is recommended by many government resources as useful for back pain. The better health channel Victoria, acupuncture is ‘moderately helpful in a wide range of conditions, particularly those which involve pain.’
