A question of balance
As a TCM practitioner, Hong focuses on your overall wellbeing – lifestyle, diet, mind and body – to understand the underlying cause of your symptoms. For example, in TCM, a headache is never just a headache. It’s a signal that your body is out of balance.
At the Hong Gu Acupuncture & Natural Therapies clinic, you are offered a complete healing system centred on the balance and flow of energy in your body. Hong works with you to create a personalised treatment plan that corrects any imbalances and clears blockages to restore harmony to your body and your life.
A trusted health care partner
While TCM offers a stand-alone solution for many conditions, Hong understands the best results often come from working as part of a health-care team.
The treatments offered through Hong Gu Acupuncture & Natural Therapies clinic can be used to support most other therapies.
Hong is more than happy to liaise with your doctor, specialist or natural therapist to help you achieve the best results.
