What To Expect During a Treatment

First and foremost your treatment will always include a thorough and careful examination of your health. This includes an in-depth enquiry into your diet, emotions and physical wellbeing. We will then observe your outward appearance and also examine your tongue and pulse to help us gain an understanding of your state of health.  After this, we will discuss with you the best treatment options.


Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile pins into specific points along the meridians of the body. Stimulating these points encourages the normal flow of energy through the body and helps to restore health.  It is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world and has been used for thousands of years to treat a range of health conditions and ailments.

Why doesn’t our Acupuncture Hurt?

Because the pins used are so fine, and our practitioners so skilled, you barely feel anything. We even treat babies and children with Acupuncture.

Herbal Medicine

We use all forms of Chinese Medicine medication: over the counter pills and capsules, concentrated granule extracts and raw herbs. This ensures that the practitioners can prescribe you the easiest and most effective way of taking the herbal medicine for your specific condition/s.
