Traditional Chinese acupuncture is a healthcare system based on integrated ancient principles – Yin Yang – and the Five Elements. Therefore, acupuncture has a different model of good health, physiology and illness. Based on these Chinese medical concepts an acupuncturist is trained to use unique diagnostic and treatment management methods when providing acupuncture. These techniques have been developed and refined for centuries. For the best outcome each patient requires an individualised diagnosis, prescription of acupuncture points and treatment management.
