Oyster Shells & Dragon Bone
Welcome to Oyster Shells & Dragon Bone
Oyster Shells & Dragon Bone was founded by Dr Leela Klein (TCM) and provides acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine as well as other Chinese medicine treatments, such as cupping and gua sha (scraping).
Leela also incorporates body work, lifestyle and dietary advice into her treatments.
Chinese medicine focuses on the underlying condition as well as the treatment of the symptoms. Treatments work on the basis of individualised formulae for each patient.
The story behind the name
She found that regular acupuncture treatments and especially Chinese herbal medicine helped her deal with her stress levels, anxiety and insomnia. Two herbs in particular, “Mu Li” (Oyster Shells) and “Long Gu” (Dragon Bone), helped her to calm her mind and fueled her continued passion for herbal medicine.
