Acupuncture Medical Diagnosis

Medical Diagnosis

At Aquilia Acupuncture in Stamford or Baldock, we recommend that if you have not yet visited your GP about your condition we advise you to do so. If a medical diagnosis has been made by your GP or consultant and you have been advised or would like to try acupuncture to see if it may help management of your condition, please contact us.

Aquilia Acupuncture is a specialist acupuncture clinic and we are able to offer our patients a one-to-one, professional and advanced acupuncture service.

Acupuncture Diagnosis

Traditional Chinese acupuncture is a healthcare system based on integrated ancient principles – Yin Yang – and the Five Elements. Therefore, acupuncture has a different model of good health, physiology, and illness. Based on these Chinese medical concepts an acupuncturist is trained to use unique diagnostic and treatment management methods when providing acupuncture. Each person, according to this type of acupuncture requires an individualised application and treatment management. Please note, this is not a medical diagnosis.
