Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Acupuncture aims to establish healthier body function and improve the body’s ability to cope with stress. The human body can be likened to a complex electrical circuit, where the energy flow must be kept in excellent working order if it is to function effectively. In humans when this circuitry falls short of optimal, illness may result.
To maintain good health and wellbeing, it is essential for the body's energy and blood, to flow in a continuous and unobstructed manner. The energy pathways (called Qi - pronounced as Chi) are called meridians and circulate via the organs and tissues of the body. These meridians were mapped by ancient Chinese practitioners thousands of years ago.
There are more than 5,000 acupuncture points on the meridians. By stimulating points with needles, the quality and quantity of energy (Qi) and body fluids has the potential to be balanced.
Acupuncture is used to:
- Manage a wide range of disorders, aiming to relieve symptoms and reduce complications.
- Address the cause and lowering the likelihood of recurrence.
- Manage long-term problems to enable a more comfortable state of health by minimising the need for medication and surgery.
- Prevent illness, by addressing energy imbalances before they lead to disease.
Acupuncture is used in the management of a wide range of pain conditions and functional disorders. For more information on specific ailments we recommend you visit
TCM Treatment modalities may include:
The majority of Chinese herbal medicine is derived from organic plant substances and minerals. These herbal formulae have been used for centuries over large populations. Formulations, when prescribed by a trained practitioner, can be used by adults, children, and the elderly. A blend of Chinese herbs and Acupuncture is a typical treatment protocol that practitioners employ for many ailments, aiming to target symptoms and the root cause of a disorder.
Applies local suction to the skin, causing toxins and blood to rise to the surface. This is thought to facilitate tissue healing and restoration of function. Cupping is commonly used as a treatment for common respiratory illnesses, skin complaints, gynaecological disorders and pain conditions.
Moxibustion is a thermal treatment used by some Acupuncturists to stimulate specific Acupuncture points, indirectly bringing gentle warmth to the area the practitioner is seeking to treat.
Also known as Auricular Therapy, Ear Acupuncture is based on TCM principles and is regularly incorporated into an Acupuncture treatment. It is generally used for management of addictions, mood disturbances, obesity and pain.
May also be referred to as ‘Facial Rejuvenation’. Cosmetic Acupuncture doesn’t only focus on the face in isolation, but involves the treatment of the entire body to restore vitality and a natural healthy inner glow.

What Is Wellness?
As we age, a range of structural and functional transformations begin to occur, leading to a decline in optimal health and physical capacity. However, our level of physical activity and quality of nutrition can positively impact on the rate at which we age. While the ageing process is able to be seen in age-related changes such as skin composition (texture), vision, hair colour (greying), hearing and posture, it can also be influenced by healthy lifestyle habits. Optimal health is influenced by our fitness and the quality of our diet, and is reflected in above-average muscle strength, breathing capacity, heart function and bone density. If we adopt healthy living habits we are more likely to experience wellness, ie good health and wellbeing.
LifeForce has a team of qualified health professionals who enjoy educating their clients in the areas of healthy diet, lifestyle choices and exercises appropriate for your current level of fitness, posture, overall health and physical ability.
