Acupuncture at Zen5 is a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Ever wondered what makes the feeling of a good laugh so great? When we chuckle, our bodies release natural pain-killers called endorphins into the blood stream, leaving us feeling positive and fantastic. Acupuncture works in the same way. By inserting very fine needles into key points, we manipulate the ‘Qi’ – or Life Force – that runs through the body. This can be seen in a modern way as stimulating the nervous system to help the body heal itself. Offered across Melbourne through the trusted and long-established Zen5, Acupuncture promotes various health benefits and gives a general boost in the feeling of wellbeing. Zen5 Acupuncturists spend time with their clients and do a complete health assessment and consultation before treatment. Once the needles have been inserted, our clients relax for 20 to 30 minutes in our comfortable treatment rooms to allow the pressure points to be fully stimulated. At each step, a fully qualified, registered Acupuncturist will ensure you maintain a high level of comfort. The World Health Organisation agrees that Acupuncture can effectively treat a range of ailments including hayfever, period pain, headaches, sciatica, hypertension (high blood pressure) and nausea, amongst others. We are a family run health group and enjoy treating the whole family, young and old.
