About me

Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) looks at an individual’s needs and regulates health problems using nutritional advice, medicinal herbs, specific exercises, massage & acupuncture.

Why see a practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine?

  • :A practitioner of CCM will take the time needed to look at all aspects of your life to determine where changes need to be made to restore health.
  • It gives a natural approach to treating disease and maintaining health
