Traditional Chinese medicine has recognised for millennia that our emotions, our physical and our mental states are inextricably linked; our mental and emotional health. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are means not only for addressing physical disorders but also for resolving underlying psychological and emotional disorders.
These modalities can help lighten depression, ease grief, reduce anxiety and weaken the effects of shock. For example, in the treatment of depression, acupuncture has been found to be comparable to the drug amitriptyline, but without the side effects.
Our practitioners have a knowledge of the herb-drug interactions that have been reported to date. This means that our therapies are safe to be used alongside any pharmaceutical and psychological treatments you may be receiving.
