“Complementary medicine” is any medical therapy that falls beyond conventional medicine but can be used to work alongside it and complement it. As well as the treatments which The Point of Healing offers, including acupucunture, Chinese herbal medicine, cupping, Gu asha, Moxa, Reiki, and Tui na – other examples would be osteopathy, chiropractic medicine and aromatherapy. The list goes on.
Sometimes these treatments are referred to as “alternative medicine”, when they are used without conventional medicine.
At The Point of Healing we believe that complementary medicine and conventional medicine go hand in hand. We believe that both can and should have a prominent place within the health management of the whole family unit, as it can effectively treat multiple conditions, acute and chronic, ranging from common illnesses, to sport injuries and post-natal care.
The gain and maintenance of optimal health comes from the active management of stress, whilst supporting and feeding the mind, emotional well-being and body with proper diet, exercise and the effective treatment of pain, illness or injury. This relationship we have with our health, should be an ongoing journey in the pursuit of achieving optimal well-being and happiness.
All the treatments offered at The Point of Healing have these principles at their core.
