Most of our doctor’s of medicine are trained in the Fertile Life Method ©, developed by Dr. Kirsten Wolfe.

We know that each therapist will have something unique to offer you and that acupuncture can be seamlessly integrated with other mainstream medicine approaches.

But we don’t just want to give you creams and lotions, we want to work on the deeper issues underlying skin imbalances and unhealthy ageing.
Cosmetic acupuncture works on several layers of our appearance; it influences the muscles underneath the skin, it can have an effect on nerves in the system affecting skin health. In addition, skin needling can help to boost collagen and cellular turnover in the top skin layer.
There are many different ways to look after your skin, but cosmetic acupuncture is one of the few to combine internal health and wellbeing with external facial rejuvenation.
