We intuitively know that our body has it’s own powerful self-healing ability which is at work 24 hours a day. Sometimes due to injury, overwork, long-term physical or emotional stress, an un-healthy diet or home and work environment, this self-healing ability can be weakened, get stuck or even go wrong.
A fundamental principle of Chinese medicine is not simply to treat the symptoms of disease, but to diagnose and correct underlying imbalances that prevent your body (and mind) from healing itself.
Illness and disease in the eyes of Chinese medicine isn’t defined as a list of symptoms, but looking at the underlying reasons why your body isn’t functioning as a balanced whole, or why it’s not in harmony with the environment you live in.
Using a combination of natural therapies including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, meridian massage, cupping and scrubbing, we aim to relieve your symptoms while supporting your body to restore and strengthen its own natural healing ability.
During your course of treatment, our practitioners will also give you individual lifestyle and dietary advice relevant to your condition, drawing from over two thousand years of Chinese health preservation knowledge and experience.
Health care is regarded as one of several means to a good life, and is defined as an individual’s harmonious interaction with their community and the natural environment.
