Chinese Medicine has been around for thousands of years and continues to evolve to this modern day. It sees the body as a whole, where everything is interconnected. The main philosophy of Chinese Medicine is to prevent disease rather that treat it after it has manifested.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to balance the body to help treat many different health conditions. Very fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points which are located on specific acupuncture meridians to stimulate the free flow and balance Qi (your body's energy). During your consult, Daria will ask you questions related to your main complaint and then look at your tongue and feel your pulse to come up with an individualised pattern diagnosis.
Many health conditions are usually the result of blockage of Qi in the meridians. Common complaints and conditions that come through Daria's clinic are:
Women's health (dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, PCOS, PMS, menopausal symptoms)
Fertility & Pregnancy support
Stress, anxiety & depression
Digestive issues (IBS, indigestion)
CFS & Fibromyalgia
