Thrive Don’t Survive Through Life

We believe that every single person deserves to be the most thriving version of themselves. At Angea, we want to support you in becoming exactly that. Not your ‘good enough’ self nor the person who just gets through the day, but someone who flourishes through life with ease and grace.

We believe being the best version of yourself means living in alignment with becoming the person you know you can and deserve to be. Chronic disease makes up 30% of the problems seen in General Practice in Australia. Living with chronic health conditions and pain is not the life you deserve to be living. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine may provide natural alternatives to support the symptoms associated with many types of chronic illness.

Our team are equipped to provide dietary and lifestyle advice as well as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to ensure a holistic approach to reaching your health goals.

Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbal prescriptions, may support the symptoms associated with:
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Digestive Conditions 
  • Pain management 
  • Anxiety and depression 
  • Sleep disorders 
  • Weight management  
  • Autoimmune disorders 
  • Hay Fever
  • Arthritis 

A Whole Body Approach to Health

Whatever your health condition, we work with you to address diet, lifestyle and genetic factors and build a unique plan for you to navigate your way to true health.

We believe the body holds an innate wisdom that when we sense into provides us exactly what we need in order to heal. The state of being required to tune into our own wisdom is the parasympathetic nervous system, also known as “rest and digest”. In this state your body downregulates into its relaxation response, heart rate decreases, respiration rate steadies, and your body can start to heal. When we are in the opposing state of being, commonly referred to as fight or flight, the resources our bodies need to digest our food and heal our bodies is spent keeping us alive.

A byproduct of modern living is that many people are operating from their sympathetic (fight or flight) state of being the majority of the time – this means their body is constantly thinking it is running from a tiger, when they are simply receiving an email notification on their phone. Acupuncture becomes an empowering modality when it allows the patient to drop into their relaxation response.

By inviting your body to drop into its parasympathetic, you are inviting your bodies own mechanisms of healing to activate. Therefore at Angea, we don’t just treat your symptoms, but treat the root cause of your manifesting symptoms. 

Overcoming Inflammation

Inflammation is an integral part of our body’s immune response, and in case of a bad fall or cut, it is integral to our bodies repair mechanism. In some cases, however, inflammation can become displaced and this is when chronic disease surfaces.

Inflammation is not only associated with most (if not all) chronic diseases but also autoimmune diseases, whereby the body’s own immune system begins attacking and mental health conditions. Inflammation is a sign that you’re body is operating sub-optimally. Inflammation may be a consequence of poor diet, stress, not enough rest.
