Dr Noreen Lalani has achieved her Masters in Acupuncture from the Tri- State College of Acupuncture in New York City. While training there, she became an expert in three types of acupuncture.

  1. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

    This is basic foundation of acupuncture and started thousands of years ago. The flow of Qi in the body is regulated through the eight principals of cold/heat, interior/exterior, excess/deficiency, and yin/yang. TCM also uses the theory of five elements which are fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Acupuncture is used to balance the Qi in the meridians to restore health.
