Chinese medicine acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world, originated in China some 3,500 years ago. It is used for treatment of a wide variety of physical and mental conditions.
Always Healthy and Happy Integrative Medicine are dedicated to delivering high-quality patient care. Acupuncture practitioners in our clinic, all registered with Australian Chinese Medicine Broad, follow a particular diagnostic and treatment protocol. A complete case history is taken and a series of traditional and modern examinations are performed to obtain an informed diagnosis. The thorough understanding of patient’s complaints, health conditions and history is important to address the presenting symptoms as well as the underlying causes.
If complementry therapies, such as Chinese herbal medicine, moxibustion, massage, cupping, Qigong therapy or dietary advice are indicated, then they can be incorporated into the treatment plan as required.
