What can I expect from my first treatment?

At the start of the first treatment, the initial step is to make a full diagnosis. I like to get to know my patients as well as possible, and find out all the factors that have led to the problems he or she is experiencing.  We will then discuss a treatment plan and perform your first treatment, usually involving acupuncture.

How does diagnosis work?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this is usually achieved by taking the pulse, and looking at the tongue. These methods have been used for thousands of years, and are very good at highlighting systemic imbalances in the body and mind, and allow formulation of a treatment plan.

Is Acupuncture safe?

All acupuncture needles are single-use only, sterilised and disposed of safely immediately after use.

How would acupuncture make me feel?

Most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing, and often report feelings of relief and clarity of mind. Many people also experience higher alertness and greater energy.

How many sessions will I need?

This depends on your individual condition. There are many factors that influence the length of a course of treatment, and this can be discussed during your initial consultation.

Many conditions can be treated within a few sessions, and most patients report significant improvements after the first or second session.

Can I get treatment in any other locations?
