Conditions Treated

Treating You

Oriental medicine does not treat diseases or target specific pathogens. This is the approach of of western medicine.

Instead, acupuncture works by fine-tuning the way your organs, hormones, nervous system, muscular system etc. relate with one another. This results in the best possible function of your entire system as it is right now, whatever your state of health. Continuously operating in this ‘optimum configuration’ produces a virtuous cycle whereby the current ‘best possible’ becomes better and better.

Your defense and recovery mechanisms are thus stimulated to function to their best, resulting in recovery from disease and symptoms. See nonSpecialism for further discussion on this perspective.
