FAQS

Do I need to book?

No. Appointments aren’t necessary. Just walk in anytime at the Bondi Junction clinic between 10am and 6pm on Wednesdays or between 9am and 4pm on Saturdays. And on Thursdays at Bondi Beach between 10am and 6pm. The last treatment on Wednesdays and Thursdays starts around 6pm and finishes at 7pm and on Saturdays the last treatment starts around 4pm and finishes at 5pm.

What do you mean by a ‘group setting’?

Acupuncture Collective is a multi-bed clinic. Our treatment room is a large space containing ten beds. Our space is designed to create a relaxing and comfortable environment.

Is it painful?

We often associate the word “needle” with the hypodermics used in injections at a doctor’s office. However, acupuncture needles share little in common. Acupuncture needles are hair-thin. Often, patients feel no sensation when the needle is inserted, but sometimes there is a slight prick, like the feeling of a hair being pulled. When musculoskeletal release is needed, a trigger in the tight muscles can be felt. During acupuncture, patients commonly experience a pleasant feeling of relaxation and may even fall asleep.

How do I pay?

Cash only, credit or debit cards not accepted. Due to our low fees, we are unable to accept health fund claims.

How many people are there in one session?

We provide a space for up to 10 people at one time. The individual requests of each patient are carefully attended to.

How long is the treatment?

You’ll need to allot approximately 1 hour for your treatment, however, treatments can be a bit shorter or longer, depending on your individual needs.

I’m a new patient, what do I need to know?

Your first treatment with us will include an ‘initial consultation’, which will help us gain a deeper understanding of your condition and your overall health. This will normally take place outside of the common room, although occasionally this might not be possible. Follow-up treatments will take place in the treatment room. During the treatment, while you relax on the bed, we may start the treatment process with another patient, before returning to finish your session.
