What to Expect

For our initial consultation, I will always allow no less than an hour to really get to know your unique system, the particular ailments that are troubling you and a bit about your diet, lifestyle and personal stress/pressures which may, unbeknownst to you, be contributing to your issues.

With sufficient information gathered I can form a diagnosis and I will begin your acupuncture treatment by placing very small needles into the areas that will help you best. This process is usually relatively painless (I regularly treat babies and very young children without so much as a tear!), although this will depend on your own body system at the time.

After I have put the needles in place, I will leave you to rest for a short while, before offering you some dietary, exercise and relaxation recommendations if necessary.

Follow up treatments will be around an hour, which may be longer than what some acupuncturists offer, but I feel it is important to spend more time with my patients for a deep and more lasting result that tackles both the root cause and the symptoms.
