Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine incorporates various techniques to treat illness
and restore health, these include;
The gentle insertion of fine needles into specific points on the the body called acupuncture points. Acupuncture can help to restore balance in the mind and body, stimulating or tonifying Qi and blood, harmonising yin and yang and unblocking meridians. This is useful for pain, internal medicine issues and general balancing of all systems in the body.
The use of glass fire or vacuum cups that are placed onto the body to help move Qi, blood and stagnation assisting with pain management, clearing heat and toxins.
We use moxibustion either directly on the skin or on top of needles promoting warmth in the channels and free flow of qi and blood.
Chinese herbal medicine

Formulas are constructed based on a patient's pattern presentation and current symptom picture, herbs are designed to bring the body back into harmony when imbalance is present. Many Chinese herbs contain properties that can clear pathogens, viruses and bacteria, they can also support and enhance immune responses, regulate blood, tonify Qi, and support energy production. Herbal medicine is often used in conjunction with acupuncture for better treatment outcomes.
