At the Traditional Acupuncture Clinic we feel that Traditional East Asian Medicine has much to contribute to modern medical care and is a safe complementary therapy.  Historically, acupuncture and herbal medicine were dominant treatment modalities of the Traditional East Asian Medical system and there are extensive records of their effective use for a range of different diseases.  Our aim is to provide these treatment options to patients where appropriate and to work in conjunction with other health professionals to ensure exceptional patient care.  Hence, we call this type of treatment; Medical Support.
