Traditional Chinese acupuncture and Tui Na acupressure therapy are two of the key components of what some refer to as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and are healthcare treatments such as pain relief, stress, insomnia, pain management or just better health, based on ancient Chinese practices and principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance and attempts to restore the body's equilibrium as well as the body's ability to heal itself.
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture and other forms of Chinese therapy like cupping and Tui Na acupressure therapy, safely treat a wide range of common health problems. I will adopt a holistic approach to any treatment and will use diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for centuries. The focus is on the individual, not their illness, and all the symptoms are seen in a holistic way in relation to each other. Each patient is unique and one patient may require a different approach to another patient even if suffering from the same Western style symptoms.
Treatment may include a number of different micro-systems including traditional acupuncture, Tui Na acupressure therapy, cupping, auricular acupuncture, facial acupuncture, electro-acupuncture and moxibustion. So, if you don't fancy needles there are other options available.
