About the Clinic

Clinic entrance

Qiraku Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine is located in the heart of New Farm, Brisbane, just 2 km east of Brisbane CBD.

Our name "QIRAKU (Kiraku in Japanese)" translates as "comfortable" and is composed of the kanji 気 (Ki, Qi) meaning "energy" and 楽 (raku) meaning "comfortable/at ease".
We offer treatments using Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Warm needle therapy, and Chinese Herbal Medicine (Kampo).

  • We offer gentle acupuncture in a relax setting. Most clients find the treatments very relaxing, and even fall asleep during the sessions.
  • We can offer NO needle treatments for children ( Shonishin ) and people with needlephobia.
  • Each client is unique. Different clients may require different treatments, even if they present with the same western diagnosis. Treatments are made for each individual.
