We use Acupuncture, Wholistic Healing, Energy Healing and Cupping to help with pain management, stress and anxiety, women's health. pregnancy and fertility.

We also offer Skin and Cosmetic Acupuncture.

Pain Management

As we all know, pain is no laughing matter. But if you can learn to manage pain, then life can become a lot easier.

Little things that are often overlooked in good health become major tasks. Imagine needing to organise your day-to-day activities around pain killers, and other management strategies. No one wants to live like that, and yet it is the reality of so many.

Stress and Anxiety

Are you feeling tired all the time, sluggish, or in a low mood? It could be because your Qi is out of balance.

To understand it we first must understand the concept of Qi (pronounced chee).Qi is the matrix of the Universe, and is like a Life Force. It brings vitality and life to all things. It is the energy that animates us.

Women’s Health

A woman's body is complex and goes through many changes from puberty through to old age. Our bodies also goes through cycles every month. Each of these need to be cared for and honoured.

We aim to provide an environment that supports these changes through the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Being in a Woman's body should be celebrated, and not considered a curse.

Pregnancy and Fertility

We offer a range of traditional wholistic practices which may help to support you physically and emotionally during your pregnancy journey.

This includes IVF, Prenatal, Pre Pregnancy, Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy.


Skin and Cosmetic

Cosmetic acupuncture involves incredibly fine needles being inserted into specific areas.

We only use the highest grade Serin Cosmetic Acupuncture needles which are ultra-fine and silicon coated to ensure your experience is as pain-free as possible.


Cupping is another technique in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is commonly used to counter muscular aches and pains.

Cupping involves placing a flame inside a glass cup, forming a vacuum. The cup is then placed on a specific area of the body and this process is then repeated over different areas of the body.


We now offer Telehealth appointment and consultations for anyone, anywhere across Sydney, Australia and the world.

This is for energy healing, general consults, and Chinese medicine.

Energy Healing

Healing has its roots in Shamanism, and Chinese Medicine is also no different. Many of the original healers of China were Shamans, and fundamental to their understanding of life was how to live in accordance to the universal flow.

Energy is everywhere, and increasingly, quantum physics is validating this. Fundamentally as human beings, we too are condensed pure potential. As condensed energy we have the ability to change it.


The body is a self-healing organism, so it’s really about clearing things out of the way so the body can heal itself.

Ad Dip T.C.M., Dip Chinese Massage

Anissa has been practising since 2007 as a registered Chinese Medicine consultant. In our day and age where time is short and people are extremely busy, she believes that healing absolutely requires proactive, empathetic listening to understand the root cause of ailments, good communication to convey understanding, good knowledge of the craft, and a passion for healing.

The focus of each treatment is to address the manifesting symptoms, but to also look at the underlying cause. This is done through a mixture of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, dietary and lifestyle advice. No two people can be treated exactly the same, and thus must be addressed differently.

"We must treat each person as an individual with certain needs, and an amazing capacity to heal when given the right environment".
