Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back thousands of years and is a system of primary health care that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and remedial massage. In Australia, the most popular forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine health care are acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. At Northside Therapies we offer Acupuncture with our registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Margaret Mcdonald.
The primary feature of modern Traditional Chinese Medicine is the premise that good health relies on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order to the individual. Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as it does on the treatment.
