How many treatments and how often?

The number of treatments that is required varies based on the type of disorder, length of disorder and each person’s rate of response to acupuncture. In general, acute disorders may require 3-6 treatments to observe effects. For chronic disorders, 10-12 treatments may be required to observe effects. The basic principle is, if it didn’t occur overnight, it will not go away overnight.

90% of our patients receive significant or complete resolution of their pain, women’s health issues, or digestive health issues. So the sooner you call us the sooner we can help you live a PAIN-FREE and High Quality Life.

Do the Acupuncture Pins Hurt & Is it safe?

Acupuncture pins are hair thin. In fact, they are thinner than a Cat’s Whiskers. You will usually feel a little sting when the pins are inserted.

After the insertion of the acupuncture pins you will feel a very unique sensation. Each person may experience different sensations, but the most common sensations: heaviness, tingling, numbness, aching, soreness, warmth or nothing at all. Should you experience any discomfort, inform the Acupuncturist and they will adjust the pins accordingly. When performed by a trained licensed professional, acupuncture is extremely safe. Only sterile and disposable pins are used here at Long Life Health
With Acupuncture you get SIDE BENEFITS not side effects!

Things to avoid before your appointment

Within 2 hours before your appointment with us, please avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, exercise, emotional upsets. During your appointment, we check your body by Traditional Chinese diagnosis, including the pulse and the tongue (please do not brush or clear your tongue coating). The things that we ask you to avoid can disturb your circulation, the functioning of the organs and the colour of the tongue. In case you cannot avoid these things, please mention them to us when you come in so that we can take them into account and achieve the most accurate diagnosis for you.

In case your appointment is close to a meal time, we suggest you have something light to eat to support your treatment.

What should I wear?

We recommend you wear loose and comfortable clothing for your acupuncture session. If your practitioner needs to access a point on your leg, for example, it is easier if you have pants that can be loosely rolled up. Comfortable clothing is also easier to relax in during a treatment and when you are relaxed you will receive the full benefits of the acupuncture.

Should I eat before I come in?

Yes. Make sure you have a little food. We don’t recommend that you come in with an empty stomach.

Can I fill out the forms beforehand?

Yes. Once you book your appointment in, our friendly staff will direct you to fill out the form online

Methods of payment

We can accept payment by cash, EFTPOS and credit card on the day of your appointment. If your private health insurance covers acupuncture, bring your membership card and we can help you claim your rebate at the time of payment with HICAPS.

Treatments and services by Chinese medicine practitioners are not covered by Medicare.

My migraines started 6 years ago, November 2016. I had a minimum of two migraines a week. Then September and October 2022 I started getting them every day. I have been to many doctors, done scans and taken beta blockers for the past three years, no improvement. My condition was making me anxious and depressed. I would just wake up and swallow migraine tablets to get by. That is why I thought I would try acupuncture. I wish I found Dr Dennis earlier. I cannot thank him enough. I saw improvements from my first visit. He is truly skilled in his profession and is genuinely dedicated to improve your health. I still go once a week for another condition I have, but I can honestly say in these past three months I have only had the occasional mild headache. Thank you, Dr Dennis for giving me my life back.

Dennis is the main acupuncturist at this clinic and he is professional, soft-spoken and his acupuncture skills are amazing! He has helped me greatly with my chronic right shoulder pain with just a few sessions, and where other acupuncturists had failed to do. His method is accurate, painless, and efficacious. I would not hesitate to recommend Dennis to anyone seeking relief from chronic aches and pains!

I have had acupuncture as a matter of course for forty years and believe Dr Dennis Quach is the most skilful practitioner I have consulted. Dr Dennis is a highly qualified and skilled specialist with an wholistic approach to pain management, reducing the adverse effects of misplaced lifestyle choices and, age related conditions. His approach is modern, without discomfort and much improvement is achieved in a small amount of time. He is dedicated to helping his patients achieve relief from pain and also, achieve their health goals through providing the highest standard of treatment and advice. His rooms are spotlessly clean, scrupulous care is taken with procedures and COVID precautions are applied. I recommend Dr Dennis wholeheartedly.

Dr. Dennis is simply amazing and I highly recommend him! 💯👌🏼😉 I had a terrible unbalance in my digest system, I would not stop burping day and night, everything I eat was just bad to my tummy. Did food allergy and intolerance tests, every GP would just give me tablets and never fixed the root or cause of the issue. After 2 years of not seeing results I was rapidly loosing weight and heading towards depression 😢 My social life was also affected as I couldn’t go out on casual dinners with friends.💔 I found Dr. Dennis on Google search and it was like a sing from heaven 🙌🏼 he was my last shot at my gut health. I saw him twice a week for 3 months and with a combination treatment of Acupunture, Chinese medicine and a veggie diet, I slowly but shortly started feeling changes in my digestion. We started to gradually incorporate different types of veggies, fruits and meet; until one day I just realised I was eating normal and feeling myself again! 😃 It is been 2 months now since my treatment finished and I still keep a healthy diet as suggested by Dr Dennis, but have not had any issues since. So much gratitude and blessings to Dr. Dennis! You are a true Healing Angel on Earth! Thank you! 💙 Erica

I commenced treatment with Dr Dennis six weeks ago. The improvement in my flexibility is a welcome surprise. The pain relief was measurable after two weeks. I will continue these appointments and will be forever grateful for Dr. Dennis's knowledge. Five stars and then some.
