A part of Chinese medicine, acupuncture can be used to stop pain, improve energy and training, in fertility, gynecology, dermatology and digestive problems. Includes Cupping, Moxibustion and a wide range of needling styles.
With a long history and large evidence base dating over 2000 years, Herbal medicine offers comprehensive treatment for any disharmony, from acute cold and flu’s, to chronic health problems and mysterious or complicated illnesses
Chinese Medicine uses foods as medicine. Health can be improved and illness prevented through foods and medicinal recipies. At Metro Health we focus on Chinese diet therapy and have a huge resource of recipies available freely on our website.
The fundamental key of any good treatment is to start with the right diagnosis, and Chinese Medicine is no different. As it’s a different system of medicine altogether separate from Western medicine (or biomedicine) the cause of your symptoms might mean something different in Chinese medicine.
