Acupuncture was developed thousands of years ago in China and is one of the most widely practiced areas of complementary medicine. It’s a holistic treatment based on the principle that qi (or energy) can be activated by the placement and manipulation of fine needles into acupuncture points, correcting imbalances and helping the body to heal itself.
Functional nutrition is the practice of using food and nutrition as a form of medicine to help patients with the management of their symptoms and health concerns. At Darling Health we recommend certain foods and diet plans to improve the functionality of the body’s physiological processes, address digestive and immune issues and return the patient to optimal health.
At Darling Health, our philosophy is that medicine should be integrative. Integrative medicine combines conventional medical diagnosis or investigations with evidence-based complementary medicines and advice. Integrative medicine explores all potential drivers responsible for the development of a condition or disease and utilises multi-disciplinary approaches to focus on the whole person and personalised treatments to achieve optimal health and healing..
Plagued by work stress, love life problems, lingering health issues – or just feeling out of sorts?

How we respond to stresses in our lives can create imbalances in the body, which can manifest as everything from emotional problems to digestive disorders, chronic pain and other chronic health issues.
