Edgecliff Acupuncture Sydney and Traditional Chinese Medicine
When you hear the words acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, what do you think of? Needles, piles of odd looking herbs, strange aromas from steaming cups...In our culture, acupuncture and TCM strategies are often thought of as “alternative” therapies, or last resorts, when the pills and procedures of Western medicine have failed to effectively treat us. This is especially true if the problem is unusually complex or life-threatening; people just don't want to trust their lives to treatments they aren't familiar with.
Give Edgecliff Acupuncture Sydney just a moment to show you how exceedingly effective in treating a myriad of medical problems acupuncture and Eastern medicine is proven to be. Since the 1970s, forward-thinking clinicians have sought to quantify and qualify the effects of acupuncture and other TCM treatments on a variety of illnesses. Their findings have been astounding.
The fact is, acupuncture can be used not only for the treatment of illness, but also for the prevention of illness and the promotion of overall health and wellbeing. People who receive treatment for a specific malady often find that once they are well, they want to continue acupuncture on a regular appointment schedule. They enjoy how the treatment revitalizes the mind and body, and brings their life and energy flow into balance and harmony. It is not uncommon for individuals to have several acupuncture treatments a year to restore energy, remove toxins, and optimize all bodily functions. By visiting Edgecliff a few times a year, you enhance your body’s ability to prevent future disease and illness.
Unlike mainstream medicine that has fairly rigid formulas for treating disease, every individual who comes to Edgecliff Acupuncture Sydney receives an approach to treatment that is completely unique and customized for their particular set of factors, conditions, and symptoms. Naturally, it is essential for an acupuncturist to complete a full examination and diagnosis of a new patient before it can be decided that Oriental medicine and acupuncture will be a beneficial treatment option. Not everyone is a good candidate for TCM, and we are not here to waste people’s time and money.
