Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is somewhat unique in that it places great emphasis on the prevention of disease. In ancient China, Chinese doctors were paid to keep their patients well. If the patient fell ill, the payment ceased until the patient got better. The emphasis on preventive health is still very much a feature of Chinese Medicine today. Chinese Medicine also stresses the interaction between the mental, emotional and physical health of the patient, in both diagnosis and treatment of illness.


Acupuncture is the most widely accepted form of treatment associated with Chinese Medicine in the Western world.

Other forms of acupuncture practiced include:

  • Needle-Free Acupuncture
