Digestive support

A well-functioning digestive system is the cornerstone to a healthier, more vibrant you.

What we eat fuels our bodies. And the thing that transforms the food we eat into fuel for our bodies is the gut.

It follows that a healthy digestive function is needed for all aspects of life and health, including tissue growth and repair, metabolism, immune defence and reproduction.

If your gut isn’t performing optimally and you find you suffer from any of the following conditions, it’s best to take action before other health problems arise.

We tend to use a multi-therapy approach for digestive disorders, involving a combination of acupuncture, dietary therapy, oriental herbal medicines, exercise recommendations, relaxation and meditation, or abdominal massage.

A special note on dietary therapy

There is nothing more fundamental to digestive health, and indeed general health, than an appropriately balanced diet. Unfortunately for many of us, what constitutes a good diet is influenced by a multitude of fads, fallacies and misinformation. Chinese medicine recognises that we all have different 'constitutions' and problems that require individual treatment approaches, and dietary solutions. Chinese medicine dietary therapy excels in tailoring the structure and content of the diet to help correct imbalances.

The latest high-level clinical research demonstrates the effectiveness of acupuncture for 46 conditions, with another 71 conditions showing mixed evidence of its efficacy.
