Acupuncture for health and well being
The success of Traditional Chinese (TCM) in the West is due to its diversity. The diagnostic system of TCM is structured in a unique way that places the emphasis of treatment on the root causes of health problems. This distinctive characteristic means that Acupuncture and TCM
- Is often administered along side western medical therapy
- May provide in some cases an alternative treatment
- Treat with a drug-free, non-invasive approach
- Treat from the core value of TCM which is to prevent some signs and symptoms manifesting
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine was conceptually developed as preventative medicine over several thousand years in China.
Acupuncture is used commonly for maintaining good health. We can address signs and symptoms such as tiredness, feelings of being run down and poor sleep quality. This means we use acupuncture to maintain optimal health as well as treating those with illness or injury. Prevention of illness by looking holistically at the patient and identifying imbalances before they manifest physically, is the fundamental principle in TCM.
