Welcome to Empirical Health

We offer quality healthcare at an affordable rate.

We aspire to be accessible to everyone.

We assure professional treatments that are tailored to suit each individual’s needs.

We aim to work collaboratively with other healthcare providers in the community. We believe that if we can support and complement other health services we will ensure the best outcomes for our clients.

We employ a range of techniques including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Body Work to meet your healthcare needs.

 Why are we called ‘Empirical’ Health?

In modern times there is a tendency to assume that the things of the past are some how out dated, even to the extent of being considered of no more importance.

The word ‘empirical’ denotes information acquired by means of observation or experimentation.  Empirical data is data produced by an observation or experiment.

A central concept in modern science and the scientific method is that all evidence must be empirical, or empirically based, that is, dependent on evidence or consequenses that are observable by the senses. The term refers to the use of working hypotheses that are testable using observation or experiment. In this sense of the word, scientific statements are subject to, and derived from, our experiences or observations.

 An Integrated Approach

While Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is effective in it’s own right, they are also very effective as a complementary tool for other modalities of healthcare.  Some of these methods include:

  • IVF
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiotherapy
  • Post-Surgery Recovery
  • Psychological issues
  • Psycho-Somatic conditions

At Empirical Health we like to work collaboratively with your other healthcare providers to ensure the best outcomes for you. If you would like us to liaise with your General Practitioner or Specialist, please let us know.

“affordable personalised healthcare.”
