Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to health. The treatment is focused on the whole person rather than the disease, therefore, in our initial consultation, a thorough questionnaire, careful observation and palpation (if relevant to diagnosis), in addition to feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue are carried out. In Chinese medicine, each person is unique, so treatments are tailored to suit each one of us
Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment, the needles are single use, sterile and extremely fine so there is usually little or no discomfort on insertion. Patients usually experience a feeling of relaxation during the treatment.
Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine that can be traced back more than 2000 years. It is based on the principle that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body’s life energy (Qi) can lead to illnesses.
The aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore and maintain the body’s physical and emotional balance. The treatment involves the insertion of very fine (hair-thin) needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Qi, the body’s vital energy, stimulate a natural healing response, and promote relaxation. In other words, acupuncture can allow your mind and body to be in sync, so you can thrive!!
