How We Treat

The focus at Heidelberg Chinese Medicine is on getting the maximum benefit with the minimum input. Our aim is to fix what you want fixed, and give you the means of keeping it that way. To do this we use the flexible and time tested healing techniques of Chinese medicine.

A typical appointment will entail:

  • Traditional Chinese Medical diagnosis that includes questioning, a medical history, tongue and pulse diagnosis.
  • Massage and maybe cupping to clear superficial stress and tension, and to begin to get your qi moving.
  • Acupuncture, the insertion of very fine stainless steel needles at specific points to stimulate and correct the flow of qi in your body, re-establishing healthy balance.
  • Prescription of herbal formulas. Individualised combinations of herbal medicines to continue the momentum of the treatment. When we prescribe herbs we use the safest and most sustainable available, your health is our main priority and a healthy planet is part of that.
  • Homework, usually in the form of advice on lifestyle, diet and exercises to help you take control of your health.

We may also refer you another health professional. If we believe that working with someone in our wide network of health professionals can help you reach your goals faster or more fully then we will most certainly let you know about them.
