Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to treatment of disease via accessing defined and very specific points on the body. This may be done with extremely fine stainless steel needles, laser light stimulation, electrical stimulation or injection of saline at those points. The knowledge and techniques have been used for over 2000 years by the Chinese and other Asian healers, and have been gaining acceptance in western medicine.
TCM puts the relevant signs in context of emotions, temperament, home life and environment etc allowing the clinician to a treatment plan that may involve acupuncture, herbal remedies and alteration of diet and environment.
Dr Durelle Esnouf qualified in 2005 through an internationally recognised year-long intensive course (IVAS) and has many regular patients.
