Chinese Herbal MedicineFor many conditions herbal medicine will be recommended by your practitioner. Our primary method of dispensing herbal medicine is herbal granule formulas. Most clients find these the easiest and most convenient to take. You only need to add 1 or 2 teaspoons of the granule formula to 1/3 of a cup of boiling water and drink once or twice a day. Our practitioners are fully qualified in diagnosing and prescribing herbal formulas customised to treat your specific ailment. The benefit is the herbal medicine is taken daily so effectively you are receiving treatment every day. This means acupuncture sessions do not need to be as frequent.
CuppingWithin our acupuncture methods we often use cupping to relive muscular tension and clear accumulated toxins from the body. Cupping assists muscles to relax by promoting blood circulation to a region of injury or stagnant blood flow. Cupping can often leave marks so let your practitioner know if that is something you would not prefer. Rest assured our acupuncturists’ know advanced acupuncture techniques that can be used instead to relieve tight muscles and improve circulation to return vitality to your muscles.
