Classical Chinese Medicine utilises natural methods to enhance the body’s ability to repair itself, maintain health and prevent illness. It treats the whole individual and the earliest Chinese texts on the subject suggest it can benefit a wide variety of disorders including –
- Muscular-skeletal Injury & Pain
- Circulatory & Respiratory Diseases
- Digestive Disorders
- Women’s Health
- Skin Conditions
- Childhood Illness
Consultations are by appointment only. Initial appointments last 60-90 minutes, subsequent appointments 45-60 minutes. A comprehensive history is taken, and diagnosis determined through questioning, assessment of the points and channels, as well as taking the pulse. Treatment commonly takes the form of acupuncture for external problems (injuries and pain) or acupuncture / herbal medicine for internal conditions (illnesses and general health). At the end of the consultation exercises or dietary recommendations may also be given.
