Why Acupuncture?

Acupuncture activates the body’s own healing ability to rebalance & restore itself naturally.

Our acupuncture clinic uses a traditional, time-honored, safe and effective method to help our clients become pain-free, heal and rejuvenate their bodies and minds.

Whilst it is still considered an alternate therapy, acupuncture is now regarded throughout the medical community for its effectiveness and lack of negative side effects, and has been known to successfully treat many acute & chronic illnesses that Western medicine had trouble treating effectively.  

Our Clinic

Providing safe, effective and personalised treatment for over 40 years.

Combining the experience of six generations with professional training, our family-run clinic in Newcastle, NSW provides acupuncture treatment for a wide range of conditions.

Our practice was established in Merewether in 1973 by Godfrey Fong and after successfully treating the people of Newcastle for many years, has now been passed down to son, Raoul.

With a degree in Health Science, Raoul has been trained to marry Eastern and Western medical sciences to give a holistic, results-based treatment for any pain or discomfort throughout the body.

Along with the principles of traditional acupuncture treatment, he has also completed extensive studies into Chinese dietary therapies, cupping, ear acupuncture, electroacupuncture, moxibustion and fertility.
