Acupuncture is over 2,500 years older than Western Medicine. It has been effectively used by millions of people worldwide.

IS IT SAFE?

Unlike many drug treatments, there are no side effects. And it is safe when performed by certified practitioners. Nowadays, many hospitals and medical professionals routinely refer their patients to acupuncture treatments, especially those patients who cannot or do not wish to take drugs.

WHAT KINDS OF CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED?

TCM and acupuncture does not treat western labelled conditions, but treats individual people. Three individuals attending the clinic with the same western named condition, say ‘migraine’ may receive three different diagnoses, a different treatment, but each make a sound recovery.
TCM has a full diagnostic framework which is capable of diagnosing and treating any known problem, but as with any medical system or treatment it is better for some things and less good for others. It is best you contact your practitioner to ask more about your particular condition.
