Our medical practice uses a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach in the treatment of a wide range of conditions. This is based on the longest standing medical system in the world today, benefiting from a rich history and a unique view of health and disease. A wide variety of techniques are employed to deliver effective outcomes without the need for drugs or invasive medical procedures.
Treatments are both relaxing and effective and specifically targeted for particular conditions. The true strength of this form of medicine lies in its ability to tailor the treatments to the individual, rather than adopting a 'one size fits all' approach.
Conditions that are poorly understood from a Western medical viewpoint can often be more easily explained and treated using Chinese Medicine methods. In fact, with its thoroughly practical approach to healthcare, Chinese Medicine often makes more sense to patients. This is why more and more people are choosing traditional methods such as acupuncture and herbal medicine for their healthcare.
However, we can also effectively combine treatments with conventional Western medicine, either to improve outcomes or to alleviate some of their possible side effects.
