Traditional Acupuncture uses subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for millennia as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The focus is on the individual, not their illness, and the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body's qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, it is possible to re-establish the free flow of qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response.
Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It aims to understand and treat the many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined and the ways in which a person's Qi or vitality may be depleted or blocked. Clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance
The sympathetic and holistic approach to treatment enables the body to perform at it's very best at critical times, as when receiving In Vitro Fertilisation.
