Oriental medicine is a form of medicine that uses your lifestyle in addition to your symptoms to diagnose a root cause of your discomfort. This disharmony can then be treated by a range of modalities, the best known of which is acupuncture. When administered by a registered acupuncturist, it is a safe option that may be used from infancy into old age.
Herbal medicine is utilised to further support the body, and can be prescribed in various forms from pills, capsules, powders or in some instances the raw form. Most Chinese herbs are derived from plants and minerals, although some are animal parts so please inform your practitioner if this is an issue for you. Herbs are obtained from reputable suppliers with ethical and sustainable cultivation practices.
