Cosmetic Acupuncture

Move over expensive, painful surgery that leaves your face looking distorted, or overpriced creams that impact your wallet more than your wrinkles.  


If you want to revitalise your appearance, brighten your skin, improve skin tone and smooth out some lines in a way that is gentle, safe and non-invasive, then cosmetic acupuncture is for you. And if you have the appropriate level of cover, it can even be claimed on your private health insurance.

Working in the same way as regular acupuncture, super-fine needles are inserted at key points on your face to stimulate blood flow and hydration, unblock deep tissue stagnation that causes pigmentation, activate muscles to lift certain areas of the face, address hormonal issues and their impacts, and regenerate tissue fibers for a more youthful appearance.

Depending on the treatment, needles may also be inserted using a specialised technique called ‘threading’, which may sound like sewing but is actually painless and serves to stimulate production of collagen and elastin to both repair tissue and plump up lines and wrinkles.  


Cosmetic acupuncture is a fast, effective way to address:  fine lines and wrinkles sagging, drooping and loss of firmness pigmentation acne and acne scarring dull, dry, lifeless complexions sagging eyelids.


While a cosmetic acupuncture treatment primarily focuses on your face, general acupuncture is also applied to the body to balance meridians and calm any prevalent conditions or agitation.  


Specialist, super-fine, silicon-coated needles are used in sensitive facial areas. As with general acupuncture, you may feel nothing, a slight initial prick, or more sensation depending on the point. The sensation is initial and temporary.  


While one treatment will deliver short-term results, a course of 10 treatments is strongly recommended to retrain facial muscles, super-charge production of collagen and elastin, and give your body time to undo and repair years and years of wear and tear, damage, and the natural effects of aging. The more sessions you can do, the longer-lasting the results.

Esoteric Acupuncture

More than just another form of acupuncture, esoteric acupuncture is an advanced energy healing technique that introduces the concept of viewing various levels of wellness rather than working on various levels of disease.  


It addresses the physical body and the energy fields above it, which helps people to achieve higher consciousness and to maintain health.  


Both traditional and esoteric acupuncture can balance a person’s physical and etheric bodies, however, the traditional way is ‘left brain’ due to the academic style in which it is taught and its focus on diseased states.  

Esoteric acupuncture is ‘right brain’ due to its personalised needle insertion style, practitioner and client’s simultaneous visualise the pattern and the practitioner’s use of intuition in deciding on a treatment plan. 


Esoteric acupuncture aligns the head and the heart and there in its gift to the world. Is esoteric acupuncture for me? 

If you are:  


  • wondering where to turn for help with physical ailments and looking for something more than what mainstream treatments can offer or 

  • aware of the mind-body-soul connection, and looking to develop this as a means to promote healing and wellness or 

  • attuned to your higher self already and keen to explore the energy shifts occurring on Earth at this time or simply curious then esoteric acupuncture is for you!

Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine

Acupuncture is an approach to health and wellbeing that originated in China more than 5,000 years ago.  


It is based on the belief that living beings have a vital energy, called qi (pronounced chi) that circulates along twelve invisible energy lines in the body, known as meridians. Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. 


Along each meridian are numerous acupuncture points, which correlate to different physical and emotional aspects. When there is a block or imbalance of qi at these points, pain, illness or emotional disorders can arise. 

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles at specific points and to various depths in order to clear blocks and restore balance the body’s energy flow.

The intent is to reduce what is excessive, increase what is deficient, warm what is cold, cool what is hot, circulate what is stagnant, move what is congealed, stabilise what is reckless, raise what is falling and lower what is rising.


Herbal medicine is a major aspect of traditional Chinese medicine, focusing on restoring a balance of energy to the body, mind and spirit to maintain health.  


The application of traditional Chinese herbal medicine starts with the assumption that the human body and nature are in tune with one another. When you become ill or emotionally upset, this balance is no longer in tune.  


There are over a thousand common herbs that are used in combinations for a wide range of conditions and which are usually prescribed by a Doctor of Chinese medicine. The combination of herbs are specially prepared based on your individual needs, environment and constitution.
