Zinc for Male Fertility

Zinc for Male Fertility

When it comes to fertility, we are all looking for that silver bullet (perhaps zinc for male fertility?) that will solve our reproductive disorders and allow us to have the family of our dreams. Unfortunately, the human body is complex, and that’s why it’s so...

Is Period Pain Normal?

Is Period Pain Normal?

The first result in Google will tell you that “period pain is common and a normal part of your menstrual cycle”. I would rephrase the sentence to say period pain is common, but it’s definitely not a normal symptom. You shouldn't just resign yourself to suffering...

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions, and we have answers!

How much will my appointment cost?

Initial appointments are $225 and last for 90 minutes (male patients can book 1 hour appointments for $140). Follow-up appointments are $110 and last for 45 minutes. Herbs and supplements are additional.

Generally acupuncture (performed by a registered acupuncturist) is quite gentle. Most of what you feel is the practitioner’s hands gently touching your skin, the needle itself is mostly painless. However, there is sometimes a momentary sting to some points. Other sensations such as warmth, tingling, or a dull ache are normal responses to acupuncture. They are an example of the Qi (energy) being activated in the point.

If you do not wish to have acupuncture, you can still become a patient and just take herbal medicine and supplements.


Yes, Kim has obtained a 4 year bachelor degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is a member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA 2343), and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA CMR0001711517). Additionally, Kim is a current student of the Master of Reproductive Medicine at UNSW (with a high distinction average). Chieko is a registered Chinese medicine practitioner, midwife, and nurse, and is a member of all the required associations and AHPRA.

Can i be a patient if i live outside of sydney?
Yes! Kim has patients all over the world. You can become a patient by booking a Skype consultation. If Skype is not suitable, alternative options like WhatsApp video calls or phone consultations are available. Payment for Skype consultations is taken before the appointment. Health funds may not allow you to claim the appointment, please check with your fund first if this is a concern.
Typically this is a good idea if sperm testing has shown any abnormalities or poor sperm quality. Kim can advise you during your first session whether your partner needs an appointment too, however basic advice is always given during that session that can apply to both partners. If you are from a same sex couple the person being treated depends on factors such as who is having egg collection and who is going to be pregnant. Please get in touch with Kim directly for more advice.
Your fertility journey is unique, and your treatment schedule will be unique to you as well. Kim will be able to guide you in your first couple of sessions in terms of treatment plan. While we can never know the future, following your treatment plan will help to improve your chances of conception. Your treatment can be adapted to natural conception or to work alongside assisted reproductive technology (ART).
