Chronic pain is not only physically challenging but also mentally draining. Chronic pain is a major public health problem and 30% to 45% of sufferers experience severe depression.

We hope to reduce the reliance on pharmaceutical medicines to alleviate pain by offering other alternative options. Acupuncture has proven to be an effective adjunctive therapy to treat both depression and a range of pain disorders.

Dr. Faisal Murad is our lead medical acupuncturist offering Acupuncture Geelong region.
