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.

The theory of five element is one of the foundations of Chinese Medicine. It is based on the five elements of nature: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

According to this traditional concept of Chinese medicine, everybody has a component of each element in their constitution and when one or more elements are unbalanced, symptoms and diseases manifest.

This style of acupuncture is frequently used in clinical practice, and alongside tongue and pulse diagnosis, it can help with the preparation of a bespoke treatment focused on the root of the disease. A correct diagnosis can have a profound healing effect. Once the balance of these elements is established, optimal health and well-being can be achieved.
