Digestive Health

It’s very common for patients to live with some degree of discomfort related to digestion. Symptoms such as lack of appetite, wind, bloating, loose bowel motions or constipation are treated effectively by acupuncture and simple lifestyle changes that help harmonise and strengthen the digestion.

Chinese Medicine includes Chinese dietary therapy, a sophisticated way of understanding the energetics of foods.  Attention is paid to how foods behave in the body and how they are prepared (eg cooked or raw).  Each person has different internal conditions in the body, therefore a diet should be prescribed that is especially tailored to the individual.

The combination of acupuncture and Chinese dietary therapy is also helpful in treating- irritable bowel disease (IBS), food allergies or intolerances, indigestion and skin issues.
