what to expect

At the first consultation and treatment it’s important to take the time to find out more about you, your current health concerns and past medical history. We’ll also talk about medication, pain, sleep, digestion, lifestyle and emotions.

Following this, some additional checks are carried out by looking at your tongue, feeling your pulses and palpating lower arms and lower legs. An individual diagnosis and treatment plan will be formulated and discussed with you.

Whether considering herbal medicine or acupuncture, the approach is similar and these treatments may be offered individually or together. Additional therapies such as massage, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha or ear acupuncture may be discussed as part of your treatment.

There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout the consultation, or if you have any questions prior to booking an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
