Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practiced in China for thousands of years and has spread throughout the world because of its proven effectiveness. Acupuncture can be used alone or combined with other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine such as Herbal Medicine, Moxibustion (a form of heat treatment) and Dietary Therapy.
Acupuncture is one of the most widely recognised and successful methods of restoring health and preventing disease. It is an holistic, natural treatment for a wide range of conditions. The World Health Organisation has compiled a list of diseases, symptoms and conditions for which acupuncture has been proven through controlled trials to be an effective treatment.
Acupuncture treats underlying causes rather than just symptoms with treatment being tailored to your individual needs. It is used not only to treat illness but also to improve wellbeing. Acupuncture is a very safe treatment and is compatible with Western Medicine.
