Internal Medicine

Chinese Medicine views the body as an interplay between five main organ systems. Namely the heart, the liver, the lungs, the kidneys and the digestion. These five systems correspond to the cardiovascular system1, the respiratory system2, the immune and dermatological systems3, the water metabolism and renal system4 and the gastrointestinal system56.

At The Acupuncture Sanctuary, we treat ailments related to any of these and understand that they all overlap with one another.

We do this with the use of Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Tuina and Dietary therapy & supplements.

Fundamentally we like to make sure you are breathing well, eating and digesting well, sleeping well and are able to do your life.
