There are 3 main ways we can help you:

> Treating specific disorders to provide relief of symptoms and reduce complications. Acupuncture is also used to treat the cause of the disorder and reduce the likelihood of its recurrence.

> Maintenance treatment of a long term problem: this is to provide a more comfortable state of health and reduce the need for medication and surgery.

> Chinese Medicine is an effective form of preventative medicine because of its ability to detect and treat energy imbalances before they lead to disease. The earlier a disorder is detected the better, so regular check-ups are recommended.
