Restore your energy and balance through traditional Chinese medicine.
Fremantle Acupuncture covers a wide scope of Chinese Herbal Medicine, including acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and Chinese herbal medicine, just to name a few.
As a registered TCM practitioner in Fremantle WA, Lisa Johnson is adept at performing all of these practices, which aim to restore one’s health and wellbeing.
Before beginning any treatment, she conducts a thorough assessment of her client’s health to be able to understand their case history and identify the issues that they’re dealing with, as well as how their lifestyle contributes to it.
Lisa performs a complete assessment of your health before she starts any treatment. During the consultation stage, she will ask about your case history, health issues, symptoms and what you wish to achieve with the treatment.
A TCM consultation also includes 10 questions regarding your appetite, thirst, bowels, urine, sleep, energy, emotions and menses. In addition to this, Lisa will take your pulse and check your tongue to determine what treatment approach to take.
There are several modalities a TCM practitioner can use, namely Acupuncture, Cupping, Chinese Herbs, Moxibustion, Gua Sha and Dietary Therapy, among others. Lisa may employ one or a combination of these.

Prepared using plant-based, animal or mineral substances, Chinese herbs can be boiled and taken as tea. Some of these can be found in your kitchen and garden, such as turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, mint and chrysanthemum, just to name a few.
Chinese herbs may also be dispensed in powder form, pills, granules, tinctures or ointments. These can be applied topically or ingested, depending on the ailment it’s being used for.

Lisa will help you make small changes to your diet to support your treatment. Dietary Therapy helps address health conditions resulting from an excess or the lack of a particular pathogen (cold, heat, dampness, dryness or wind).
Lisa’s dietary advice is easy to understand. It simply centres around the concept of eating in moderation to avoid an excess of a particular pathogen, and to cut out foods that have a negative impact on your health. She can also help you address common health complaints based on the principles of Chinese medicine, the five elements and yin and yang.

This therapeutic method is often combined with acupuncture. The process involves the burning of a Chinese herb called Ai Ye, or Moxa, close to the client’s skin to induce heat transfer.
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that is rendered with a ceramic spoon. It is usually applied on parts of the body where cupping is also useful, such as the back, neck and shoulders.
The process begins with the application of oil on the affected areas, and then the Gua Sha tool is gently run across them. The Jade Gua Sha tools are used for the neck, shoulders and back, while Jade Rollers are used for the face.
