Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs in Menopause

Written by Emma Tommasini

Menopause can be a stressful and difficult time for women, as it often occurs when women are at the peak in their careers, whilst trying to cope with night sweats, hot flushes, insomnia and anxiety. These symptoms often reflect a pattern of disharmony, that can be assessed by using the diagnostic skills of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Although menopause is common to all women, every woman will be unique in their presentation and will be treated differently.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be used to manage the symptoms of menopause, so that the process occurs as naturally and as symptom free as possible. On your first visit, our Registered Acupuncturist will discuss a treatment plan to suit your particular needs.

Facial Radiance Comes From Balancing The Body

Written by Emma Tommasini

Cosmetic Acupuncture is also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. It has been practised in China for over 3000 years. First Things First Acupuncturist Wendy Carter recognises that if the body is in a state of health, and balance, the external appearance of the face is more radiant. Therefore it is important to work on balancing the body, as well as treating the face. Wendy uses gentle techniques and tiny needles, especially suitable for the face. The treatment is relatively pain free, with only minimal discomfort felt with some points. Most people barely feel it.

Encouraging Your Baby Into The World

Written by Emma Tommasini

Acupuncture is a safe and well known method to encourage natural labour, in a woman with an uncomplicated pregnancy, who is at full term.

It works by promoting the following; 

1) Relaxation of body and mind, helping the woman to be free of anxiety.

2) Relaxes the pelvic floor allowing the baby's head to descend deeper into the pelvis, thereby stimulating contractions.

3) Improves circulation to the pelvis.

4) Ripens of the cervix.

Appointment are health fund claimable and can be made with our in house Acupuncturist Wendy Carter on 4728 7165 or online

Revitalise your face with an 'Acupuncture Facelift'.

Written by Wendy Carter

Revitalise your face with an 'Acupuncture Facelift'. A consultation is done first with our In house Acupuncturist Wendy Carter. This includes the ancient art of pulse taking, the tongue is observed as well as the colour of the face.

Our face sags and wrinkles in accordance with our imbalances within. For example horizontal lines on the forehead (worry lines) indicate spleen deficiency. Frown lines indicate liver disharmony.

The internal balance is treated as well as the facial points. Lines soften out, facial muscles relax and facial tone improves. The face is flooded with qi (vital energy), blood, oxygen and nutrients. A course of treatment gives the best results.
