acupuncture & tcm

Specialising in hormonal balance, fertility, IVF, pregnancy and post partum support.

Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is the art of Ancient medicine mixed with modern science to create a treatment that guides your body into its highest potential healing state.

Meridians run throughout the body and the aim of our treatments is to make sure the qi (energy) and blood is moving with fluidity through these meridians. Part of the diagnosis may consist of observations of the tongue and feeling the quality of the Pulse.

Modalities of treatment that may be used in your consult are Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxa, Gua Sha and Tuina Massage. Herbal Medicine may also be prescribed so you can continue your healing journey from home.

Initial & Standard Acupuncture Appointments

Your initial appointment will include a thorough health assessment covering your primary health concern(s) and history. The information collected in this session will guide the development of a comprehensive treatment plan and prescription of any necessary herbal or nutritional supplementation.

Please bring a copy of any relevant test results if you have them or email them through prior to [email protected]. If you do not have any recent results, we will discuss your needs and a referral letter to your GP may be included in the treatment plan. All follow up appointments after the initial will be standard consultations.
