A complete natural medical system, time-tested & personalised for you
With a history of over 3,000 years, traditional Chinese medicine is one of the most popular evidence-based natural therapies, helping one-quarter of the world’s population today to treat disease and maintain health.
Chinese medicine offers a natural alternative to treat many common and difficult health conditions. It can be used together with western medicine, or at times when a drug-free approach is preferred.
Best known for acupuncture, Chinese medicine also includes Chinese herbal medicine, cupping and scrubbing, meridian massage, lifestyle advice and diet therapy, tai chi and qi gong exercise.
How does Chinese medicine treat me differently to other therapies?
More and more people are discovering the potential of Chinese medicine to help many common and difficult health conditions – including those that have failed to respond to contemporary western medicine and other therapies.
One important difference of Chinese medicine is that we don’t treat symptoms in isolation, but seek to diagnose the underlying patterns of imbalance (syndromes) that are causing them.
With this approach, when certain internal organ imbalances, emotions, recent or past injuries, as well as particular lifestyle, diet and environmental causes are identified and resolved, many co-existing symptoms can be relieved together.
Many chronic, lingering and re-occurring symptoms can be solved when the underlying physical, emotional and lifestyle causes are uncovered with the help of your Chinese medicine practitioner.
Chinese medicine helps your body to help itself
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.
