Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment is individualised for each patient and involves the insertion of fine, single use needles into the skin, at specific acupuncture points where there is disharmony or imbalance. Acupuncture points are selected to benefit the patient and rebalance the flow of energy, blood and body fluids along the meridians and in the organs.

Diagnosis is established through tongue and pulse analysis as well through medical history and current symptoms. Acupuncture can be used to treat internal pain in the body including headaches, stomach pain, menstrual pain and many other types of pain in the body.

 

Chinese Herbal Medicine 

Chinese medicine herbal prescriptions are formulated with a combination of different herbal ingredients, that work together toward effectively rebalancing 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.
