About AcuCare
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the basis of a medical system used by a quarter of the world's population.  It is a natural therapy, which lacks the dramatic impact of some western medicines, but takes a more gentle and gradual approach to assisting the body to treat itself in a holistic manner so that the root cause of any problem is treated along with the symptoms.

AcuCare Consultation

We treat the whole person not just the symptoms.  During the initial visit, we will focus on the immediate complaint and on your past health history.  this is followed by a diagnosis and a discussion about the best treatment for your problem.
