Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

Acupuncture is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. It originated in China approximately 2,500 years ago is now practised across the globe.  

 

The focus is on the whole individual rather than a particular sign or symptom in isolation.  The physical, emotional, and mental aspects of life are seen as interdependent. The mind-body is seen as a whole system and understanding the relationship between the various parts is central to making a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Acupuncturists use subtle diagnostic techniques, such taking the pulse and observing the tongue, that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’ along pathways in the body known as ‘meridians’. We may also use other techniques such as moxibustion, cupping, tuina/massage, and guasha.

Acupuncture for pain.

For pain management, I use a special style of acupuncture called Dr. Tan Balance Method. This approach can yield results much faster than other traditional methods and it is reported that 85% of patients get success with many stating as much as a 50% reduction in pain within one treatment.

 

For longer term pain relief, a course of treatment is required.
