When you come to us for a Chinese Medical consultation and treatment, you will be given an initial consultation, which will include questions about your symptoms, your state of mind and lifestyle, and also a thorough examination of your body, especially a tongue and pulse examination. This kind of examination is unique in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which can tell us a lot about your health and any signs of imbalance.
After this initial consultation, our TCM practitioners will formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan for you according to your individual condition and constitution. The treatment will be followed with a combination of Chinese Medicine therapies to energise and bring your body back to harmony and equilibrium, thus allowing healing to take place. The treatment can be one or a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Tuina massage, exercise, breathing and meditation, food therapy and others.
Acupuncture is given to most patients who come for Chinese Medicine treatment at our London clinic. It involves the gentle insertion of very fine, sterilised, disposable needles into points on the body.
