Digestive Complaints 
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help regulate a number of digestive processes, leaving you free to enjoy food with friends and family, and eat some of those treats!

Figuring out what is causing digestive upsets can be very confusing. Is it particular foods? fatigue? stress? temperature? In some cases people feel the causes of digestive upset can change by the day!


Depending on your needs, we offer acupuncture, moxibustion, a number of Chinese herbal formula (that come in easy to swallow tablet forms) as well as lifestyle and food advice. The treatment we recommend you will depend on your prevailing symptoms. Book in for a consultation and see if Chinese medicine can help you with digestive related disorders.
