Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is somewhat unique in that it places great emphasis on the prevention of disease. In ancient China, Chinese doctors were paid to keep their patients well. If the patient fell ill, the payment ceased until the patient got better. The emphasis on preventive health is still very much a feature of Chinese Medicine today. Chinese Medicine also stresses the interaction between the mental, emotional and physical health of the patient, in both diagnosis and treatment of illness.


Acupuncture is the most widely accepted form of treatment associated with Chinese Medicine in the Western world.

Other forms of acupuncture practiced include:

  • Needle-Free Acupuncture
  • Electro-acupuncture
  • Laser acupuncture

Herbal Medicine

Bayside Acupuncture & Natural Medicine stocks a full range of both Chinese herbal extracts and Western herbal extracts.


Naturopathy evolved out of ancient healing traditions and is now recognised by mainstream medicine as a valuable and effective treatment for a variety of disorders. Many naturopathic beliefs – such as the importance of nutrition, exercise and stress management – have been adopted by conventional Western medicine.

The body eliminates toxins either by directly neutralising them or by excreting them in the urine or faeces (and to a lesser degree from the lungs and skin). Toxins that the body is unable to eliminate build up in the tissues, typically in our fat stores. That fact is important to know because when fat cells start breaking down, they release these toxins back into the circulation. At IntoHealth our Detoxification program is different as it is designed to support the proper handling and elimination of stored toxins.

Anti-wrinkle injections Botox, fillers, PRP and Face Thread lifts

Botox, cosmetic fillers and other injectables are increasingly popular for treating wrinkles and expression lines.


Rather than just smoothing or tightening skin, an injectable filler aims to change the facial profile to a more youthful one. The injection of filler materials under the skin can fill in deep folds, such as nasolabial folds, (running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth), create fuller lips and pad out hollow cheeks and eyes. Collagen used to be the standard filler, but now hyaluronic acid with brand names like Juvederm, Restylane  are more popular.


Anti-wrinkle injections

The anti-ageing properties of the botulinum toxin (sold as Botox and Dysport) When injected, they relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. It’s effective for “expression lines”, such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes, and “turkey neck” – lines on the throat.

Face Thread Lift

A thread lift is a form of non-surgical ‘mini’ facelift. A thread lift is a less severe or invasive form of facial skin lift, bringing facial skin backwards and upwards to give the impression of a more youthful skin tightness. This is particularly useful for sagging around the chin and jaw, laxity around the mouth, and for cheeks that may droop to make prominent jowls.

Women’s Health

For over 2000 years Chinese Medicine has recognised that women have many special health concerns. The Chinese Medicine approach to Women’s Health complements Western medicine in an area where it is much needed. It supplies a completely different, yet comprehensive overview of women’s physiology and outlines specific treatment for many of the ‘vague’ symptoms that often accompany menstrual disorders.

Children’s Health

Paediatrics is one of the oldest and most established specialties within Chinese Medicine. According to Chinese Medicine philosophy, children grow and develop rapidly and are full of vitality. Despite this – the bones, tendons, muscles, organs and immune system are considered to be weak and under-developed. This difference in the physiological and functional activities of children make them more susceptible to disease than adults, yet allows them to recover more quickly.
