CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Chinese herbal medicine involves the use of multiple herbs in a formula that synergistically work together to help manage a range of health problems. This may complement your acupuncture treatment, particularly when problems are multi-faceted or long-standing. Herbs are commonly used for women's health issues, digestive disorders, menopausal symptoms, sleep or energy problems among others.
Herbs are available in granules, capsules or tablets depending on the formulas needed. Herbs may be suggested during your treatment if necessary.
By inserting fine needles (finer than hair) in various aspects of the body we are able to stimulate a therapeutic response.
This technique influences our body’s biological processes to address the root cause of symptoms such as pain, digestive disorders, sleep disturbances, stress and much more.
By using specific points, we stimulate nerves and tissue that will help the affected area.
Depending on what the practitioner deems necessary, some massage techniques can be used as well.
B.health.SC in Traditional Chinese Medicine (UTS)
Maddie has a strong appreciation for both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine. After completing her Bachelor of Health Science this appreciation inspired her to complete a six-week program at the China-Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing in 2014. It was here she observed the integration of the two medical approaches in various fields including gynecology, diabetes, oncology, dermatology and many more.
This integration of ideas alongside the desire to optimize the wellbeing of patients further motivated Maddie to undertake postgraduate study in Science Research. Her thesis focused on examining the pharmacological mechanisms of herbal medicine for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which is currently under examination.
