TCM originated in China more than 3500 years ago and today it is practiced across the globe. It is an ancient way of healing in which different methods are used during the treatment, including acupuncture, cupping therapy and chinese herbs. When energy (qi) flows freely the body will function normally. When qi becomes stagnant or blocked, symptoms of illness will appear either physically, emotionally or mentally. TCM can be used to effectively treat a wide range of ailments and is particularly effective in treating chronic injuries that have not responded to other therapies.
The first consultation usually takes one hour. During your initial consultation, questions are asked, the tongue is examined and the pulse is read in order to make a diagnosis. Predominantly, acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas are used. These methods compliment each other during the treatment. Acupuncture can also be used to maintain good health and balance in the body.
Julie Contantine is a Member of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) 2285. Health Fund rebates are available.
