Traditional Chinese Medicine is a primary form of health care that uses natural therapies such as Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Cupping, Moxibustion, massage (Tuina), dietary and lifestyle advice and preventative health care. The primary feature of TCM is the idea that good health relies on restoring balance within the body by assisting it to heal itself.
How does treatment work?
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single use, disposable needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s energy pathways (meridians) to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of energy, or Qi, through the body.
The acupuncture points may also be stimulated using other methods, including acupressure, moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to rebalance the flow of qi.
Herbal Medicine may be prescribed, incorporating a range of different herbs which are carefully formulated specifically for your presentation.
