What to expect from your treatment?
During the first consultation we will talk about your health in detail and the particular challenges you’d like help with. Much of the first session may consist of talking and going through your health history, but the first treatment will always be carried out in this session too.
I will also look at your tongue and feel your pulse on both wrists. If you are suffering from pain, I will examine the areas of pain and check your range of movement.
During acupuncture treatment, I’ll insert a small number of acupuncture needles in different areas of your body. Most of the time needles are left in place for 20 minutes.
By inserting very fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points I aim to re-establish the free flow of Qi (vital force, energy) to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response.
Many patients find treatment to be deeply relaxing and will often leave feeling calm and peaceful.
Sterile, single use, disposable needles are used which ensures the highest levels of hygiene and safety.
Alongside my acupuncture treatments I usually give naturopathic advice. Reviewing and adjusting your diet and lifestyle routines to aid your health and overall wellbeing.
When necessary I will give nutritional advice and suggest supplementation to address any deficiencies. For some patients detoxification protocols will be recommended.
I may also use sound therapy, cupping, moxibustion, tapping or EFT, muscle - testing, coaching methods, flower essences and other natural, safe and effective disciplines to assist my patience on their journey towards vital health and wholeness.
After the initial consultation, patients will often attend for a series of follow up treatments the number and frequency of which will depend upon the patient and their condition.
