OUR APPROACH AND PHILOSOPHY

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the common name used for a broad range of medical treatments. These were developed over 5,000 years ago in China. These treatments are still widely practised in modern-day China. Furthermore, it is in practice worldwide. It is popular in countries like Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, United Kingdom and United States.


All our therapies are based on traditional Chinese medicinal practice, which was established through centuries of clinical practice. While evidence of TCM practice was recorded 2000 years ago. the history of TCM predates this. In actual fact, TCM traditions stretch back another 3000 years.

Traditional Chinese is unique for its holistic and preventative approach. Generally, patients approach a practitioner with a single medical complaint. The practitioner will first diagnose, And then more than one, treatment may be used to treat the patient. This helps to treat the specific complaint as well as related symptoms and conditions.

For example, a patient may seek help for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). But s/he may also suffer from other symptoms This could include fatigue, insomnia, hypotension (low blood pressure), and/or a poor immune system. Hence more than one therapy will be used for treatment. The combined treatments seek to return the body (and mind) to a state of equilibrium. This is because established TCM precepts explain that the mind and body must be in balance for true health to be achieved.

I went to Dr. Zhang since 2014, my immunity was low, and I had 3 miscarriages between 2010 and 2014. I had 3 sections... with Dr. Zhang, to boost up my immunity first, then nourishing my productive system, and final section for thinning my blood (sticky blood caused my miscarriages). I gave birth to a very healthy boy in 2015. After that I go back to Dr. Zhang every 2 years to have a section, just to maintain and balance my whole system, often in September, so I can have a smooth winter without being ill ( don’t get me wrong, I’m still getting ill, but fast recovering, normally recovered after one or two good night sleep. )read more

Excellent Care from Dr Zhang. I have been her client for a while now and every time I felt a professional and caring... approach. I had some uncomfortable pains in my breast last year and after the course of treatment I was free of pain plus gained more physical and mental energy. Recently I went again and I feel that this time one treatment worked already, but if I need to I’m back. I always think of her as my first choice if I feel my body is not at its best. I had acupuncture, acupressure and herbs. These treatments are a bit out of my price range, but I’m happy to save and still go there, because of my good experiences.read more

I went to see Dr Zhang with a chronic digestive issue that I had been suffering from for 3 or 4 years. Within a week,... I started to eat pasta and bread again—that after 2 whole years of suffering severe indigestion from ingesting any wheat-based food.Within 4 weeks, I was eating normally again. My energy levels were up and my immune system improved (previously I was having colds every few weeks during winter time). All my friends commented on how much younger and healthier I looked (I had a sallow complexion before).I highly recommend Dr Zhang for anyone like me who has been diagnosed with IBS or related diseases.read more
