Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practised for thousands of years in China and the East as the main healthcare system. It is used to treat a vast range of health conditions and issues, physical, mental and emotional. It is a holistic treatment, addressing not only the presenting condition but also any root cause or deeper issues. Today, it is practised all around the world and people use it as an alternative to or alongside Western Healthcare.
Halcyon Acupuncture views each patient as an individual and each treatment will be specifically devised and focused entirely on creating the most successful outcome. A range of TCM techniques can be selected to help with your concerns and balance the body.
