Chinese Medicine

 A holistic approach to the prevention of illness and the treatment of disease

Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, focusing as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment of disease. Chinese Medicine addresses the underlying cause of the condition and assists the symptoms with drug-free pain relief.

About Chinese Medicine

Benefits of Chinese Medicine

Utilising Chinese Medicine and its many unique areas of practice may help improve lung capacity, regulate heart rate and blood pressure and balance hormone levels, while also reducing chronic inflammation.


Research studies that have been collated in the Acupuncture Evidence Project show that Chinese Medicine is effective in the treatment of acute and chronic ailments and can be an effective adjunct in the treatment of many common ailments including mental health, physical stress, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and more.

Types of Chinese Medicine at Heal’r


Acupuncture supports the treatment of a wide number of conditions. We use gentle insertion techniques of fine, single-use, sterile acupuncture needles into specific locations on the body called acupuncture points. These acupuncture points connect along the body, forming energetic pathways known as meridians.

Needle insertion is quick and relatively pain free, producing a state of relaxation to return the body to a state of equilibrium by clearing blockages and encouraging the normal flow of Qi and blood throughout the body.

Manual therapies
Remedial massage
For centuries, Heal’rs have been incorporating remedial massage as a form of healing. The combination of remedial massage and manual therapy known as Musculoskeletal therapy, focuses on soft tissue massage and skeletal alignment. It utilises Acupressure to establish harmony, balance and relaxation throughout the various areas of the physical body.

Often used in conjunction with acupuncture, cupping is a method of introducing heat into a glass cup and then placing it directly on the surface of the body to create a sealed vacuum. This improves circulation to the local area, whilst also relaxing the surrounding muscle fibres to reduce inflammation and improve the flow of blood around the body.

Used in conjunction with acupuncture, Moxibustion is the therapy of igniting the Chinese herb, moxa. Moxa is positioned near the surface of the body or on the head of the acupuncture needle itself and is used because of its ability to penetrate the most superficial outer exterior, into the much deeper internal layers of the body itself.

Qi Gong and Tai Chi (Exercise therapy)

Qi gong is a form of healing that we've used to overcome chronic adrenal fatigue and other health conditions. Qi gong is the science of moving meditation and harmonising breath techniques with gentle rhythmic movements to cleanse, strengthen and circulate the life energy known as Qi.

At Heal'r we combine Qi gong and Tai Chi to maximise postural alignment, improved fitness and increased flexibility, leading you towards a better state of health and wellness, longevity and spiritual cultivation.

Highly qualified and expertly trained, our Heal’r practitioners are genuine people you can relate to.
