Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system which includes diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease to improve an individual’s health and well-being.


The aim is to balance the harmony in your body, putting everything back in tune and restoring the natural equilibrium of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual functions.


Traditional Chinese Medicine is generally implemented in association with Acupuncture; other modalities that may be used during your treatment session include:

Tui-na Massage

Tui-na massage involves a variety of techniques and manipulations, which uses the therapist’s hands and elbows to stimulate acupuncture points and channels and brings about a more harmonious flow of qi and healing in the body. It is usually performed through clothing.


During cupping, suction cups are placed over points or muscles to invigorate the tissues and promote healing.


During moxibustion the herb Artemesia is heated and held just above the surface of the skin to gently warm acupuncture points.

Chinese Patent Herbs

Chinese patent herbs are classic formulae which are manufactured according to the highest standards into tablet form. They work to help alleviate symptoms and address the condition that is causing the symptoms.

Diet and Exercise

At your request, dietary advice may be given according to the elements of your body and energetic properties of food to support your healing process and optimize your performance.

To enhance and integrate your treatment, exercise plans may also be offered according to your personal needs and wishes.

Mindfulness Interventions

Mindfulness interventions are complementary to TCM and support ongoing benefits of treatments.

You may choose to combine TCM with Mindfulness self-management skills to boost your health and well-being.
