Dantian Health – East Brunswick Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Clinic

Reclaim your health and restore vitality with responsive, holistic health care

Do you experience pain, affecting your health? Acupuncture and Chinese herbs offer a natural option for the management of your symptoms.

Dantian Health is an Acupuncture and Chinese medical clinic, previously located located inside Brunswick’s well known Oriental Medicine hub, the Australian Shiatsu College. We have recently relocated to a new space in Collingwood. Our mission is to help you reduce pain, reclaim your health and restore your vitality.

We have now moved on from this tranquil and relaxing space inside a converted factory warehouse within the heart of Moreland , nearby to the busy and vibrant cafes and shops of Lygon St and Sydney Rd, right on the border of Brunswick East.

The college is runs a wide range of wellness coursesfocussed around Shiatsu, Chinese Medicine and other modalities such as massage therapists and counsellors.

Dantian Health is a holistic medical centre, still providing to the community of Brunswick, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine services – just from Collingwood. For anyone seeking Chinese herbs or acupuncture, North Melbourne’s suburbs of Carlton, Thornbury, Northcote, Coburg and Fitzroy are not too far from the clinic. Of course, people requiring treatment from anywhere in Melbourne are welcome!

Sessions at Our Chinese Medical centre are exclusively by appointment.
