Chinese medicine has grown steadily more popular in the western world over the last few decades as we focus on more natural forms of health care. This stems from a desire to better understand our bodies, what we're putting into them and the effects of these actions.
Practiced over thousands of years in China, it continues to evolve with treatment that looks at both physical and emotional symptoms. Rather than isolating these symptoms, or treating with a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, Chinese medicine attempts to address the root cause of disease or imbalance. Its effectiveness is widely accepted in modern medicine as a holistic medical approach, with acupuncture known to stimulate the body’s natural healing reflexes. It can also be used in conjunction with western practices to further ensure the best possible health outcome.
