Your first appointment will usually take around 90 minutes. Subsequent appointments are for 45 minutes. As part of your consultation I will discuss with you how many treatments I think you will need. Weekly treatments are usual to begin with reducing in frequency as your body responds.
At your first appointment I will usually take a full medical history. I need to diagnose your condition from a Chinese medical perspective so will be asking you questions to produce a treatment plan based on your state of health and lifestyle.
Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine also involves feeling your wrist pulses and looking at your tongue.
I will decide on which combination of acupuncture points is right for your whole body as well as your specific symptoms. The points I use may change from treatment to treatment as your condition improves.
