Auricular Ear Acupuncture

What to expect ?
1rst treatment includes a medical consultation and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) tongue, face and pulse check with diagnosis. We check for signs of heat, cold, damp, wind and other factors that effect your organs, digestion and joints.
Did you know that arthritis is related to a heat/wind/damp attack in TCM.
or a cold is an invasion where the wind has allowed the cold and damp to invade your immune system.
