Melbourne Chinese Medicine Treatments

Supporting Women’s Health with Traditional Chinese Medicine in Melbourne

The Which Doctor offers professional traditional Chinese Medicine Treatments to women in Melbourne. We provide all our clients with a high quality service that addresses your health concerns and restores your wellbeing.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used to help support fertility, pregnancy, hormonal changes, as well as general health issues. We use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as this makes the most effective use of the body’s natural healing ability, as well as rebalancing energy, Qi.

When visiting The Which Doctor, treatment may include 1 or all of the following components to support your personal health and wellbeing goals.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture uses very fine, sterile single-use needles on specific points of the body to stimulate the circulation of energy, Qi. This supports the body’s natural healing ability. Acupoints are determined based on your symptoms and health condition.

Cupping

Chinese Cupping Therapy is effective at alleviating a wide range of health symptoms and encouraging healing. This is done by removing excess pathogens and reinvigorating your Qi at specific points on the body.

Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine uses a mixture of natural herbs and herbal extracts to help support imbalance in the body. Your TCM will prescribe a personalised combination and strength of herbs, based on your individual health condition.

Chinese Diet Therapy

Chinese Diet therapy is used in conjunction with other Chinese therapies to provide an ideal treatment outcome for your health goals. This diet focuses on Yin and Yang, along with a specific combination of hot and cold foods in your diet.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion focuses on raising the temperature of certain acupoints. This is done by warming a moxa stick to encourage circulation and blood flow to that point. This helps to amplify the benefits you gain for traditional acupuncture.

Tongue Diagnosis

Tongue Diagnosis is a critical tool for our TCM practitioners to use when assessing our clients. Each section of the tongue corresponds to a specific organ. Disharmony in these areas show imbalances that need to be corrected.

Pulse Diagnosis

Pulse Diagnosis is helpful in developing an overall diagnosis of your health and wellbeing. There are 9 pulses on each wrist. Each provides vital information that corresponds to different body organs and the state of each organ.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a relatively new form of medicine. Here at The Which Doctor, we endeavour to give you the best treatment outcomes possible and therefore combine a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach with Functional Medicine.

Functional Medicine looks at treating the root cause of disease and uses a holistic treatment approach that encompasses the lifestyle of the client into the treatment plan. Instead of the traditional disease-centred focus of western medicine, Functional Medicine uses a client orientated approach that treats the whole person, not a specific symptom.

Via extensive questioning a combination of genetic, environmental, lifestyle and biological information is determined and then used to identify and treat the underlying problem that is causing chronic disease. At The Which Doctor this means that as well as being prescribed Chinese Herbal Medicine, you may be prescribed supplements containing essential vitamins or minerals that your body is lacking.

What is Chinese Medicine?

Chinese Medicine is an ancient form of traditional medicine that incorporates many modalities and originated 2500 years ago. It is based on the theory that your body is made up of many channels (meridians) that are the transport for your body’s vital energy (Qi). These meridians are connected to body organs and when disrupted or blocked they create an imbalance and therefore pain or disease.

Chinese Medicine is also based on the principles of Yin and Yang. The Yin and Yang theory expresses the importance of contrasting or opposite forces and how they must interact to create a whole. Everything in the universe can be divided into either Yin or Yang as the universe must be in perfect balance. Yin is the cold, slow moving aspect and Yang is the hot, fast moving aspect.

Some examples of Yin factors include water, darkness and the moon. Yang factors include light, fire and the sun. By addressing the wavering balance of Yin and Yang within your body, an acupuncturist will attempt to rebalance and bring you to optimal health using acupuncture and other modalities.

We will start your consultation with a comprehensive list of questions including your health and medical history. This helps us to establish a treatment protocol that is specific to your individual condition and needs.
