During your initial consultation a comprehensive case history will be taken. We will discuss your treatment goals. I will ask you questions about your diet, digestion, lifestyle, medical + family history, emotions, sleeping patterns etc. I will then ask will then observe your tongue and take your pulse on both wrists to aid the diagnoses.
Acupuncture involves the shallow insertion of sterile disposable needles as fine as a strand of hair into specific points on the body along meridians (energy channels). My techniques are renowned as being extremely gentle and incorporate breathing techniques, so you will most likely find the experience very relaxing.
Each treatment I select around 6-10 points (less initially if you are sensitive or needle phobic). I explain the benefits of each of the specially chosen acupuncture points, to deepen your understanding of Chinese medicine and how it's benefiting you.
I'll check in with you to make sure you are comfortable and get any feedback. Feel free to ask me any questions along the way, I just love sharing my knowledge. You will then have space to relax (around 30-40 minutes) and rest, maybe even sleep, while the acupuncture helps to re-balance the channels and organ systems.
We will discuss a treatment plan, Chinese herbs in capsule form or supplements may be recommended, practical lifestyle, acupressure and dietary advice will be given to help improve your vitality. It's advised to take it easy after a session and drink lots of water to help flush any toxins.
