Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system, over 3000 yrs old, which is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve health and wellbeing. TCM uses various modalities including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion (heat therapy), Tuina (Chinese massage) and Qi Kung (Therapeutic exercise, breathing and meditation) to restore balance to mind, body and spirit. Chinese Medicine treats the underlying cause of disease rather than treating just the symptoms.

When the body is in its natural state of health the Qi (life force)flows harmoniously along the channels to all parts of the body. However, stress, overwork, poor diet, emotional trauma or physical injury can cause blockages in the channels which then present as various types of illness.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, pre-sterilised, single use needles at specific points on the body to remove blockages and restore health. It is a safe, gentle and effective therapy which can be used alone or in combination with Western Medicine.

TCM and Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. The World Health Organisation recognises over 180 conditions that have been scientifically verified to respond well to treatment including, respiratory conditions, digestive disorders, pain relief, back pain, skin conditions, insomnia, anxiety and depression, migraine, menstrual problems, infertility and stress relief.
