Here at Essex Acupuncture Room (& at acupuncture clinics across the land and sea) treatments for the same symptoms vary. It is the person rather than the disease/condition which guides our treatments. The particularly good thing about treatment here at Essex Acupuncture Room is that we practice different styles of acupuncture. The main scope of our practice allows us to needle away from the affected area and still get the results you want. Dr Tan’s Balance Method Acupuncture and Master Tung Acupuncture are our current favorite styles of acupuncture. We are also fortunate to have gained our foundation training in Traditional Chinese Medicine so you can be sure we have many ways of addressing your health concerns.
