Your first session will take up to an hour and a half, including a consultation session and a treatment. Please bring any medicines or medical test results with you to this appointment.
This information will help me develop a full traditional diagnosis of your main complaint and other underlying issues. I'm more than happy to share this with you.
Being 'Covid-Secure' means that I request you not to bring anyone with you to clinic unless necessary. I don't treat children under 12 years, but acupuncture works incredibly well for older children- they love it! All children under 16 are required to be accompanied by their parent or guardian.
Just so you know...there is a toilet!
A Typical Treatment
Treatment time in clinic is around 45 minutes, allowing 15 minutes to clean/disinfect the room between patients. I'll ask you for an update, check your pulses and decide what I'm planning to focus on that day.
Once needles are in, you lie back and enjoy the lovely sensations of deep relaxation acupuncture provides. We check you're feeling good to go, then you pay and, if you wish, book your next appointment.
To reassure you I always explain where I'd like to treat beforehand and never spring any surprises - remember its YOUR body so, if there's anywhere you prefer me to avoid, it's absolutely fine to say so.
I might suggest other techniques such as moxibustion,
tui na, guasha or cupping if I think they'd help.
