Depending on their expertise and experience, they may combine one or more of the treatments below to help a patient.

To understand how we may help with individual ailments, please refer to our list of ailments for further information.

Therapy list


Cupping therapy detoxifies, relaxes the body and improves natural health. It helps to ease local congestion and toxins, unblocking lymph nodes along the spine, which in turn helps the body to work more efficiently.


Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy focusing on acupoints to stimulate the flow of Qi (or energy) through the body’s meridians to re-open the Qi pathway, increasing energy flow to internal organs to enhance the body’s own healing power.

Herbal medicine

Chinese herbal medicine, one of the oldest and most comprehensive herbal systems in the world, is continually developing and adapting to the needs of patients over the centuries and is backed up by research into every aspect of its use.

Electro acupressure

Electro acupressure is a non-invasive form of acupressure that uses mini electrical impulses to target acu-points in the meridian network (as posited by Chinese medicine) to unblock the pathways and heal a large number of aches and pains in the back, pelvic, and limb area.

Facial acupuncture

Facial acupuncture, or cosmetic acupuncture, is an effective, non-surgical, treatment to reduce the signs of ageing. The use of acupuncture increases the local circulation and stimulate collagen production to give a glowing, radiant, younger complexion.


Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy that warms the skin and invigorates the flow of qi or vitality in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences by stimulating blood and lymph circulation.

Ear candling

Ear candling is the rediscovery of an ancient tradition for the treatment and prevention of ear problems. Candles are made of natural waxed cloth; helping to remove the wax plug from the ear while re-balancing the pressure in the ear.

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 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 more
