Our experienced Chinese Medicine practitioners specialise in Traditional and Classical Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and Herbs.

Our experienced Chinese Medicine practitioners specialise in Traditional and Classical Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and Herbs. We are passionate about providing you with skilled practitioners and have a dedicated team working throughout the week to look after your needs.

Chinese Medicine is an ancient and specialised art, which recognises that each person exhibits patterns and behaviours in response to disease and ill health. We are all individuals and will respond differently to illness, viruses and environment influences. This concept is important and is where the strength of Chinese Medicine lies. With this in mind your practitioner tailors your treatment to suit your individual requirements and may use: acupuncture, cupping, massage, gua sha, herbs and diet and lifestyle advice to help you achieve health.

Chinese Medicine is a medicine that focuses on health and creating vitality (yang), to allow you to heal and flourish. Stimulating the body’s natural function to help it to heal. Chinese Medicine holds the health of the body, mind and spirit as all equal and important. When the mind and spirit are light clear, the health of the body will follow.

We believe in supporting and listening to you on your health journey and are happy to work with you and your other health professionals to achieve this.

Please speak with one of us if you would like to discuss your health further.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Creating beautiful skin means not only softening lines, but creating an inner glow that people notice. Cosmetic Acupuncture uses a holistic approach to achieve a fresher, glowing complexion without using harsh soaps, chemicals or medical intervention.

Super-fine, sterile needles are inserted into the face to activate or release muscles as required; this also boosts circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, plumping up the skin and smoothing its appearance. A cosmetic acupuncture session also includes facial gua sha (massage) to further stimulate circulation and create “micro trauma”; this micro trauma can prompt fibroblasts in the skin to produce more collagen, which has the effect of filling out skin and smoothing out lines.

Great skin starts from within, so your practitioner will also enquire and treat all areas of your health to achieve the best result. And may use not only acupuncture but herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle adjustments.

Cosmetic Acupuncture can address:

  • Puffy skin
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Some discolourations, or uneven skin tone
  • Dull or dry skin
  • Scars
  • Acne and pimples – particularly if acupuncture is combined with herbs and dietary therapy.

Best results are achieved with a block of 10 weekly sessions. This 10-week block can be repeated after a short break if there are other areas that the individual would like to work on.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Cosmetic Acupuncture is contraindicated in pregnancy, when the body’s energy is directed towards building new life. It is also contraindicated when the immune system is busy fighting a cold or manifesting an allergic reaction.

It is also recommended that migraine patients be migraine-free for a minimum of 3 months before commencing cosmetic acupuncture treatment.
