Traditional Acupuncture

The focus for a Traditional Acupuncturist is to treat holistically rather than treating individual symptoms. This is because a Traditional Acupuncturist views all symptoms (physical, mental and emotional) as part of an interconnected pattern and aims to achieve balance throughout the body. Therefore you might commence treatment with the hope of eradicating a particular symptom and be delighted to find that other symptoms happen to resolve at the same time.

Many people choose to have acupuncture to help with a wide range of problems such as anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, fatigue, arthritis, back pain, vertigo, allergies, and low immunity to name just a few. Others choose to use acupuncture as a preventative treatment to help avoid illness and maintain good health.
