Pain Management

Pain Management Clinic

Do you experience pain or discomfort in your shoulders, neck or back? Have you sustained a sports-related injury or suffer from tennis elbow, sciatica, migraines, menstrual pain, joint pain or nerve pain? You might be interested to know that Pivotal Chinese Medicine provides acupuncture for pain relief in Melbourne that can help address these and other issues. We’re strong believers in the efficacy of Traditional Chinese Medicine to improve health and overall wellbeing.

How Does Acupuncture for Pain Contribute to Wellness?

Pain can arise when the smooth circulation of qi and blood is blocked. Acupuncture for chronic pain aims to remove obstructions in these channels, alleviating discomfort and improving quality of life in the process. Furthermore, acupuncture can enhance pain tolerance and management as well as regulate emotions linked to pain such as anxiety, fear and frustration.

What Do We Use for Musculoskeletal Back Pain Treatment?

We can employ different techniques to assist with back pain, shoulder pain, sciatica pain and other types of body pain. This includes moxibustion, electro-acupuncture, cupping and guasha. These methods can help relieve acute or chronic pain associated with musculoskeletal issues. Here’s some information about each of these treatments we offer at our pain management clinic:


Moxibustion is a technique that involves the application of herbal substances during acupuncture to support the body’s detoxification process. The herbs are strategically placed on the acupuncture points. In some cases, a moxa cone is used to deliver the herbs directly to the needles to create a warming sensation.


Electro-acupuncture involves applying a small electrical current to acupuncture needles, aimed at facilitating the movement of qi or energy in the body. Your practitioner will skilfully regulate the current’s flow to targeted body areas, ensuring optimal treatment for neck pain or other concerns.


Cupping is an alternative medicine that involves a trained therapist heating a special cup and placing it on the skin with the opening facing downwards. This creates a suction effect that can improve blood flow, promote relaxation, enhance overall wellbeing and alleviate pain.

Spooning (Guasha)

Spooning, also known as guasha, kerokan or coining, is a technique that involves a practitioner using a special tool to scrape the surface of the skin, resulting in minor tissue damage. It’s believed to provide revitalising and therapeutic benefits to the body such as stimulating blood flow and lymphatic circulation, releasing tension and blockages, and promoting natural healing processes.
