The treatment itself
During your initial visit, which takes about one hour and thirty minutes, a full diagnostic consultation including questions about your medical history and all aspects of your health and well-being will be carried out. Your pulses will be taken on both wrists and your tongue examined. This information will enable me to create an individual treatment plan including lifestyle and dietary advice including acupuncture.
Ultra-fine, sterile needles will then be placed gently into various points on the body along the meridians to clear blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi through the patient. I may also stimulate the points using other methods including cupping, electro-acupuncture stimulation, moxibustion and guasha for the Qi flow to return to normal.
