Acupuncture with fertility and acupuncture IVF support
One of the few acupuncturists to have a special interest in the areas of natural fertility and IVF, Qi Medicine is focused on helping couples reduce the stress and pain of infertility treatments.
Five benefits of receiving acupuncture whilst on a fertility journey:
- Reduces stress, tension, and fatigue
- Looks at both the male and female factors contributing to fertility
- Is safe to use in conjunction with mainstream fertility treatments such as IVF and IUI
- Can be used at any stage of the fertility journey, from preparation through to after birth
- Treats you as a whole person and treat’s you accordingly- you a not just your reproductive organs!
What fertility training do we have?
Most of our doctors of medicine are trained in the Fertile Life Method ©, developed by Dr. Kirsten Wolfe.
The fertile life method takes a holistic, integrative and thorough approach to fertility and IVF.
We work hard to uncover the deeper reasons why you may have not yet started a family, and discuss what additional help you may need with fertility.
Our doctors or Chinese medicine will leave ‘no stone unturned’, and perform a thorough 150 point check. This check will assess the gynecological and reproductive health of both you and your partner.
As a result of this check, we provide you both with a clear treatment timeline and plan. This plan will let you know exactly what your next steps towards having a baby should be.
How we work with your IVF and fertility doctor
We believe that all health professionals have a unique skill in their field, and therefore we work in conjunction with your gynecologist, IVF specialist, GP and any other health professional on your team.
In addition, we know that each therapist will have something unique to offer you and that acupuncture can be seamlessly integrated with other mainstream medicine approaches.
Sadly, the fertility rates set to drop in the coming years in the Moonee Valley. This figure appears to be due to women wanting to have babies later in life, which in itself can present a range of challenges.
Because of this, our goal is to ensure we are helping as many couples as possible achieve their dream of starting a family, regardless of age.

Acupuncture for endometriosis pain
The pain of endometriosis can be unbearable for so many women, and so poorly understood by their loved ones and peers. Endometriosis is not your usual ‘period cramps’, and regular painkillers often don’t do the trick for many sufferers.
At Qi Medicine acupuncture we are passionate about helping women overcome the pain, discomfort, and stress associated with endometriosis through acupuncture.
According to the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, endometriosis affects around one in ten women.
in addition, in Moonee Valley alone, there are over 11,667 women who could potentially benefit from acupuncture for endometriosis pain. We believe many of these women to be suffering in silence.
Acupuncture is effective at reducing the cramping pain associated with endometriosis.
According to the Royal Women’s Hospital website, the cause of endometriosis cause is still largely unknown. According to their website:
Some women experience improvement of their symptoms with alternative treatments, the most popular is traditional Chinese medicine and herbal preparations.
Therefore, with acupuncture being recommended by many mainstream health professionals, and clinically recommended to relieve pain, it could be an excellent choice if you do suffer endometriosis.
All of our doctors of Chinese medicine have specific treatment protocols that may help you find pain relief.

Skin health is so important to us here at Qi Medicine Acupuncture!
Your skin is a reflection of your internal wellbeing, and if your skin is off-kilter, then so is the rest of your system.
Nowadays, Ascot Vale women are busier now than ever.
We believe that your beauty treatments should help to relieve stress, and can be fit into a mid-week lunch break.
Cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce lines caused by stress and fatigue in the face.
But we don’t just want to give you creams and lotions, we want to work on the deeper issues underlying skin imbalances, and unhealthy aging.
Cosmetic acupuncture works on several layers of our appearance; it influences the muscles underneath the skin, it can have an effect on nerves 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.
