“For effective treatments, I like to use only a few, well-chosen points. I practice in a private, peaceful space so you can fully relax.”

Your first acupuncture appointment will take approximately two hours.

The initial diagnosis involves discussing your current symptoms and medical history as well as your sleeping pattern, appetite, digestion and emotional wellbeing. Women are, also, asked in detail about their menstrual cycle, any past pregnancies and childbirth.

I will take your pulses on both wrists, examine your tongue, monitor your blood pressure and also feel for any areas of muscular tension.

Your acupuncture treatment

You’ll be asked how long you’ve had your complaint for and details of any associated symptoms. I also need to know about any medication you are taking. Based on this information, I will put together your personalised treatment plan, which may include lifestyle or Chinese energetic dietary advice, useful Eastern and Western exercise tips as well as acupuncture.

Treatment frequency

At the beginning, one treatment a week is the norm. The change in symptoms or feelings of wellbeing varies from person to person. This may happen in the first two or three treatments, while chronic conditions often take longer.

As soon as your complaint improves, treatment gaps will be adjusted to suit you. Many people find acupuncture so beneficial that they come for ‘top-ups’ to maintain their energy levels.

Acupuncture isn’t about quick fixes. It may take you several treatments before you start to feel different or notice any changes with your main complaint. However, you could be one of those lucky ones who responds immediately!
