We’ve had a tough time in Victoria due to the implementation of strict lockdowns, and several industries were affected, including acupuncture services. Businesses and schools have closed, and people are restricted from traveling more than a 5km radius from their residence.
Some specific guidelines and requirements have been set by the Victorian Government in which patients must justify before they can receive an acupuncture treatment. In a nutshell, patients who require an acupuncture treatment to prevent a significant deterioration or escalation of an existing condition will be allowed to schedule a treatment session from 28th September.
Some restrictions have already been eased across Victoria since September 13. The nightly curfew has been moved from 8pm to 9 pm and public gatherings have been increased to 2 people meeting outdoors for a maximum of two hours.
The easing of restrictions and what it means for acupuncture
Chinese medicine, which includes acupuncture, is considered a primary health care service and thus, it is an essential need during these times. In fact, many people need additional support since the lockdowns have caused increased stress and some mental health issues. Acupuncture can provide an alternative treatment that can effectively alleviate the symptoms of these conditions.
Acupuncture can also help boost the immune system which is vital during this pandemic. So, essential care patients can now book for treatment starting from 28th of September until the full reopening of acupuncture services on October 26th.

We can assure you that we will provide the best acupuncture services based on your current needs and health requirements. We’ve also implemented several hygiene practices in our acupuncture clinics to ensure your safety, and these include the following:
- We’ll be reducing the number of appointments, so only one or two people are present in the clinic during an acupuncture session.
- We will also disinfect tables and commonly used areas in our clinic like bathrooms, reception, door handles, and windows.
- We will also require our patients to sanitise their hands before and after each treatment.
- We will minimise the use of linen, and we will use disposable face hole protectors.
