Digestion provides nourishment for the whole body and is fundamental to good health. Abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, heartburn, diarrhoea constipation are all warning signs that your digestive system is out of balance.
Eating habits, low-quality food along with our busy lifestyle often affect our digestion and gut health. It is not only important to consider what you eat but also to look at how you eat such as eating lunch at your desk or on the go and whether your intestines are actually absorbing all the nutrients you are eating.
Chinese medicine views the health of the digestive system as the root of long term health. It assesses if it is working correctly on whether the ‘digestive fire’ is balanced; the energetic state that allows correct digestion and absorption of foods. I focus treatments on nourishing your gut to prevent chronic digestive complaints, leaving you feeling strong, resilient and healthy.

How It Works
Chinese Medicine views the processes of the body as an energy system. Health and wellbeing rely on the smooth and dynamic flow of Qi (energy) through the body through a series of meridians/channels beneath the skin. Treatment aims to restore the smooth flow of Qi correcting imbalances such as deficiencies, stagnations, and excesses. It improves bodily functions and promotes the natural self-healing abilities of your body.
