The Manning - Great Lakes Womens Health Acupuncture Clinic.

Tree of Vida offers holistic Eastern Medicine for women at all stages of their lives.

From menstrual difficulties infertility and pregnancy, to menopausal imbalances  and most health needs in between.

We focus on your mind, body and emotions to find the underlying cause of your condition. Eastern Medicine tailors the diagnosis and treatment to you, the individual; rather than treating a disease, we treat patterns of disharmony within your body. 

Tree of Vida is located in Failford, halfway between Forster & Taree.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been practiced for over 2000 years. It involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single use, disposable needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) on the body to remove blockages, improve energy flow and restore balance. 

Acupuncture activates the nervous system, triggering the body to release chemicals and hormones and influence the body's natural healing abilities to promote physical and emotional well-being.



At Tree of Vida each treatment is uniquely tailored to you. 
During your first visit a detailed medical history will be taken as well as a tongue and pulse diagnosis.
Your treatment will include Acupuncture and potentially other modalities such as Cupping and Moxibustion.
Herbal Medicine and lifestyle advice may be prescribed. 

 Health Fund Rebates are available

What is the Tree of Vída?

Vida is a spanish word meaning ‘Life’.

The symbolism of the Tree of Life has a long history, crossing many cultures and has connections to both Chinese ideology and Sara’s passion for Women’s Health. 


The life of a tree can be seen to symbolise the growth of a family. A tree sprouts from a seed, grows and branches out and then creates a new fruit that gives life to the next generation. 


Personal Growth & Re-birth

As the seasons move into autumn and winter, many trees hibernate and lose their leaves. By springtime, trees slowly re-emerge, sprouting tiny buds before blossoming to life.

Like the life cycle of a tree, the stages of a womans life transform through profound maturation, in a process of metamorphosis. 

It is through understanding these shifts and the needs of each phase, that Tree of Vída can ensure women thrive at every stage of life.
