What to Expect

Find out about the treatment process and how many treatments are suggested

Consultation & First treatment - 2 Hours

Our first meeting is our first opportunity for me to get to know a bit about you. We'll discuss the reasons for seeking treatment, a bit of background information, medical history and how you're feeling in general. I'll do a brief physical examination followed by a clearing treatment to make the way for treatments to follow. The first treatment will then take place ready to kick start the bodies healing process. I use a combination of needles and moxibustion, which is the burning of a Chinese herb over the point before needling the point. This will warm the point in preparation for the needle.  I'll then use ultra-fine, single-use only, sterile needles during treatment. 

Please refrain from wearing makeup or fragrances for our treatments together

Follow up treatments

Each follow up treatment that we have together will build on the previous treatment. During our follow-ups, we can discuss how things are going, what's changed and what could be better.  Each treatment that you receive from me will be crafted with you in mind, using points around the body that will encourage healing at all levels to take place.I use a combination of needles and moxibustion, which is the burning of a Chinese herb over the point before needling the point.

How many treatments?

I want to make sure that treatment is as effective as possible. The number of treatments depends on how long problems or symptoms may have been causing you problems. I advise that you receive treatment once a week for four weeks, moving to once a month if you feel the treatments are having the desired effect. 

 

Eventually,  we want to be seeing each other once every three months, normally at the change of season. This is to make sure everything is going well and that you're kept in the best shape for the next three months.
