Moonee Ponds Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Welcome to our Moonee Ponds clinic Qi Medicine!
Are you looking for help from experienced, compassionate acupuncture and Chinese medicine therapists in Moonee Ponds? Then we know we can help you.
We would love to invite you down for a treatment with us, in our fresh, clean and quiet treatment space. We have built our clinic after more than 13 years of clinical experience, and pride ourselves on giving you the most nourishing and enjoyable experience possible.
Our team of doctors and allied health professionals are seriously passionate about bringing more health and wellbeing to the people of Moonee Valley- we pour our hearts and soul into each and every session with you, because when you feel better, we know we have done our job well.
Our team are experts in the areas of:
Qi Medicine is one of the few clinics in Moonee Ponds to offer expertise in all things related to natural fertility and IVF. Many of our Chinese medicine doctors are fully trained in the Fertile Life Method ©, developed by Dr. Kirsten Wolfe.
This method takes a holistic, yet extremely thorough approach to understanding why you may not be pregnant yet, and what can be done to help your fertility.
Our therapists like to leave ‘no stone unturned’, and perform a thorough 150 point check, assessing the health of you and your partner. Following this, we provide you with a clear treatment plan and let you know exactly what needs to happen in order for your best possible outcomes to occur.
We also work in conjunction with your gynecologist, IVF specialist, GP and any other health professional helping you along your journey. We believe that each therapy has something unique and useful to offer you and that acupuncture can be easily combined with other mainstream medicine approaches.
With the fertility rates set to drop in the coming years in the Moonee Valley area due to women having babies later in life, we wanted to make sure we are helping as many couples as possible achieve their dream of starting a family.
Many women have heard from their friends, family, and doctors that acupuncture during pregnancy and labor is a good option- and we agree. Because acupuncture is completely drug-free, and works only with the body’s natural rhythms, it is considered a gentle yet effective solution for pain and discomfort during pregnancy.
We work in conjunction with a local Moonee Ponds local pilates instructor- Platform 7 Physiotherapy and Pilates– to make sure you stay strong during your pregnancy and are ready for a successful labor.

Endometriosis can be, well- a pain. And at Qi Medicine, we are passionate about helping women overcome the pain, discomfort, and stress associated with endometriosis with acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Endometriosis according to the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, affects around one in ten women.
This means, in Moonee Valley alone, there are over 11,667 women who could potentially benefit from acupuncture for endometriosis pain.
The cause of endometriosis cause is still largely unknown, and according to Royal Women’s website ‘Some women experience improvement of their symptoms with alternative treatments, the most popular is traditional Chinese medicine and herbal preparations’.(https://www.thewomens.org.au/health-information/periods/endometriosis/treating-endometriosis)
We know acupuncture is clinically proven to relieve pain, and our doctors of Chinese medicine have specific treatment protocols which may help you find pain relief.
We love healthy skin, and cosmetic acupuncture and skin needling are one of the best ways we know how to help you have the healthiest looking skin possible. Many women of Moonee Ponds are working harder than ever, and need as much healthy skin support as they can get to help promote healthy aging.
Cosmetic acupuncture works on several layers of our appearance; it influences the muscles underneath the skin, it can have an effect on hormones and neurons in the system affecting skin health. In addition, skin needling can help to boost collagen and cellular turnover in the top skin layer.
There are many different ways to look after your skin, but cosmetic acupuncture is one of the few to combine internal health and wellbeing with external facial rejuvenation.
Sciatica and back pain are two of the most common reasons people will seek acupuncture for pain relief.
16% of Australians overall report back pain, which means around 2100 Moonee Ponds residents suffer from back pain too. We hope to help as many local residents with back pain as possible with acupuncture!
According to the better health channel Victoria, acupuncture is ‘moderately helpful in a wide range of conditions, particularly those which involve pain.’
Qi Medicine works alongside a number of local health clinics, including Beyond Health and Fitness in Pascoe Vale Rd Moonee Ponds, who provide Osteopathy and Yoga services to help combat back pain and sciatica. We also work alongside local GP’s, including Dr. Glenn Pereira in Pascoe Vale Rd, Essendon to help you manage your back pain effectively.
And we don’t just provide acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, we also offer rejuvenating remedial massage and Balinese massage sessions, with our fully qualified massage therapist, Simon Morris.
Remedial massage is excellent at helping to relieve stress, muscle tension, back pain, neck pain, and fatigue. Massage can help you feel refreshed and revitalised, and we pride ourselves on being one of the most professional massage clinics in the Moonee Ponds area.
