Catherine Mia Larkin is a practising medical doctor, and is also a qualified acupuncturist and herbalist She has worked for over 20 years managing many chronic and acute health concerns using the Eastern approach. Chinese Medicine understands and explains how diet, lifestyle and our emotions can affect our bodies. Conversely it specifies how disease in turn has an adverse effect on our psychological well being. While undertaking acupuncture treatment patients generally come to a better understanding of the origin of their condition and are empowered to take more positive responsibility for their physical and emotional well being.
Acupuncture is often better placed to deal with some of the stress related challenges that burden the world today, e.g. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Anxiety, Insomnia, Headaches etc as the more holistic approach of Chinese Medicine addresses both the emotional and physical components of a disorder.
Acupuncture has been shown to reduce inflammation and relieve pain and is helpful in dealing with acute and chronic painful conditions e.g. back pain, sciatica, Arthritis, Frozen shoulder, Tennis elbow and sprains.
Dr Larkin had the opportunity to work at the Well Woman centre for several years using acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. Problems with irregualr and heavy menses, Pre Menstrual Tension, Endometriosis, Polycystic ovaries, Menopausal and Infertility issues and IVF support can benefit from Chinese Medicine.
