Wellspring Chiropractic now offers acupuncture services in our Townsville practice.

Meet Acupuncturist Dr Rahni Koturaj (BHSc)

Rahni is an AHPRA-registered Practitioner of Chinese Medicine who has previously practiced on the Gold Coast, QLD and in Canberra, ACT.


While her practice predominantly involves acupuncture, she also has a keen passion for Chinese dietetics and touches on this in most of her treatments. Ba Guan (cupping therapy), Gua Sha (scraping), moxibustion and Tui Na (Chinese massage) also play large roles in her sessions, with some Chinese herbal medicine and exercise therapy.


Rahni uses an evidence-based approach and tailors treatments to the time of day, season, life stages, and hormonal cycles of her patients. She welcomes patients with a variety of health concerns but has a particular penchant for helping women manage anxiety and stress, correcting hormonal imbalance and achieving optimal digestive function.

We are now offering Acupuncture services every Monday, Tuesday, Friday & alternative Saturdays at Wellspring Chiropractic Townsville.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic health technique that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine practices in which trained practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin needles into the skin. Surprisingly, although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are relatively pain-free.
