What I can expect
Chinese Medicine adopts a holistic approach to patient care. During your consultation the practitioner will discuss your condition and how it relates to your overall health. This is followed by an examination and treatment tailored specific to you, not just the condition and disease process. The focus is on optimisation of health along with prevention and treatment of disease.
This is because in Chinese Medicine no single sign or symptom can be understood unless within the context of the whole patient.
Treatment involves a combination of acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal medication. Each tailored consultation and treatment will usually last 45 mins to 1 hour.
