Using Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnostics of Colour, Sound, Odour and Emotion, Questions, each patients constitutional type is established, forming part of the treatment plan.
We use methods that aid our natural ability to become well, with modalities such as Traditional Acupuncture, EFT and Kinesiology.
TCM, also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine, is also ancient Eastern Medicine. Using tongue and pulse diagnosis, plus lots of questions, a treatment plan unique to each patient is arrived at.
A Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis is complex, gathering lots of information, plus using 12 pulses and examining the tongue. This diagnosis and treatment plan is updated every session to achieve the fastest , most precise and best results for each patient.
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as Tapping, and sometimes called Meridian Tapping Technique.
Specific Acupuncture points are gently tapped on, but no needles are used.
EFT is incredibly good for emotional pain and trauma, helping resolve unresolved emotional issues, whether recent or long ago.
Every EFT session is specifically tailored to each patient, no EFT Scripts are used - you're unique and so is your treatment plan.
