Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
Offering a holistic approach linking mind, body and emotions, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine focus on the prevention of disease, addressing the underlying cause of the condition as well as the symptoms.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s energy pathways (meridians). Your practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including acupressure, moxibustion, cupping, electro-stimulation and massage.
Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to assist with general health maintenance and disease prevention. By strengthening and enhancing normal bodily functions, the immune system is boosted and a general sense of wellbeing is promoted. Treatments work on the basis of individualised formulae for each patient.
Acupuncture for everyday people and common ailments
