TCM & ACUPUNCTURE

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a uniquely holistic system to maintain and restore harmony and balance to a person. The holistic nature of TCM is based on philosophies which were developed through the observation of human, nature and the universe – the interplay of the microcosm and macrocosm.  

TCM focuses on the Three Treasures to maintain optimal health and balance – Qi (Energy), Jing (Life Essence) and Shen (spirit). Health is more than just the absence of disease, and TCM recognises this with its unique capacity to harmonise and enhance our capacity for enjoyment, fulfilment and happiness.

  • Acupuncture

Acupuncture 

Acupuncture treatment is individualised for each patient and involves the insertion of fine, single use needles into the skin. This modality represents an energetic conduit between practitioner and patient so that balance may be restored, and the Three Treasures (Qi, Jing and Shen) revitalised.  

Diagnosis is established through a consultation involving current and past medical history, palpation, observation and tongue and pulse analysis.  

Chinese Herbal Medicine  

Chinese medicine herbal prescriptions are individually formulated with a combination of herbs, that work together toward effectively to rebalance various patterns of disharmony. Herbal formulations serve to support the treatment goals and often provide reinforcement to the patient for the period away from treatment, to keep the patient on track with their healing.
