What Can It Help?

Chinese Medicine has been shown to benefit a wide range of conditions, and has traditionally been used for both prevention and cure. The list below is just a small selection of conditions that respond well to treatment.

The advantage of having one practitioner who is able to use acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and tui na massage, and can give advice on nutrition and other self-healing practices you can do at home, is that you get a fully rounded and multi-pronged approach to treatment, with much quicker effects than just relying on one kind of treatment alone.

It also makes it possible to treat stubborn, chronic and complex conditions, and cases where there is no simple diagnosis.
