TCM uses a detailed system of differential diagnosis and practical, responsive treatment. Melissa will assess your health using traditional techniques such as pulse and tongue diagnosis; examine bodily function, signs and symptoms.
This style of diagnosis maps the complaint and its underlying pattern of disharmony, which allows Melissa to develop an individualised treatment plan complete with strategic Acupuncture points.
Hair-thin, flexible needles are inserted gently and shallowly in order to stimulate specific points along the meridian system to clear blockages and encourage the natural flow of Qi.
Acupunctures capacity to detect and correct imbalance makes it a powerful preventative health tool.
Chinese herbs may also be prescribed to support Acupuncture treatment strategy and help balance the body from the inside out. Herbal formulas, like the Acupuncture treatment, are designed specifically for the individual, based on medical history and symptoms.
