Chinese Medicine

Chinese medicine is a system of healthcare that has developed over 2000 years. Incorporating acupuncture as well as Chinese herbal medicine, Chinese medicine views illness as the body being out of balance. While Chinese medicine is effective in treating illness, it has also traditionally been used to keep people healthy, in contrast to treating people when they have become sick.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture uses fine filiform needle to tap into various points around the body, empirically and scientifically shown to have specific effects on the body. All needles are sterile, single use needles which are disposed of immediately after use.

What can it help with?

Acupuncture may benefit;

– Musculoskeletal pain; back and neck pain, arthritic pain, repetitive strain injuries, headache, sports injuries

– Gastrointestinal; constipation, diarrhoea, IBS, indigestion, nausea, reduced appetite

– Gynaecology and Obstetrics; pregnancy support, painful periods, infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome

– Emotional; stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, substance withdrawal,

– Respiratory; common cold, asthma, hay fever

Also, look at the WHO for conditions that acupuncture can treat.

Chinese herbal medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is a key aspect of Chinese medicine. Chinese herbs have been used for centuries to treat illness and restore body balance by improving digestion, improving immunity as well as many other ailments. Every illness is unique and so formulas can be tailored to suit your condition.

The Treatment

The whole session generally lasts from 30-40 minutes depending on the condition being treated. After taking a history, acupuncture needles are inserted and retained for approximately 20 minutes during which time the patient is left to relax and let the acupuncture take effect.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Watson (Chiropractor) know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
