Consultation & Treatments
The first appointment is an initial consultation where I take a full case history and carry out a few simple diagnostic tests. This will take about an hour. Bearing this in mind, I will take details of your medical history, your diet, digestion, sleep and emotional state. As explained in the British Acupuncture Council’s patient information leaflet, treatment is aimed at the root cause of your condition as well as your main symptoms. Further treatments will depend on how you as an individual respond to the therapy, and generally that means 4-5 treatments consecutively to make improvements. We then review your case together to decide if further treatment is needed. As acupuncture is a preventative discipline, patients are encouraged to attend on a monthly or 2 monthly basis, if they so wish.
