Chinese Medicine (CM) is a comprehensive medical system that originated in China and continues to be used widely alongside biomedicine in China and other East Asian countries. We provide core CM treatments such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and moxibustion, and actively promote self-help activities to help you make the most of your treatments with us.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine sterilised needles into the skin at location in the body known as acupuncture points.
Chinese herbs possess different characteristics that have been used safely and effectively for over 2000 years in China and other East asian countries.
Cupping involves the suction of a glass cup, performed by creating a vacuum with a flame before being placed on the body.
Moxibustion involves the focused application of warmth on the body by burning natural compressed mugwort leaf.
Acupressure uses massage and pressure to stimulate acupuncture points instead of needling as in acupuncture.
Our supplementary therapies complement our core treatments of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine and are great ways of enhancing the overall effect of these treatments.
