Your initial consultation and treatment will last for up to 1hr and 30 mins. During this session you will be asked questions about your past medical history, general health, medication, diet and lifestyle. This is followed by pulse and tongue diagnosis prior to your treatment.
An acupuncture treatment usually involves between 3 to 5 very fine needles being inserted at carefully chosen acupuncture points. You will need to remove some of your clothing in order to uncover the areas of the body that are going to be needled. Trousers that roll above the knees, are great and socks rather than tights or stockings is advisable. The needles remain in place for about 20 minutes while you are resting. Follow up sessions last between 45 minutes to an 1 hour. (if we are just using acupuncture).
The number and frequency of treatments varies for each individual, as everyone is treated according to their own health needs. This will be assessed and discussed in your first session. Alternating between a massage treatment and an acupuncture treatment also works well.
Other techniques may be used alongside acupuncture including massage, aromatherapy, moxibustion (the use of a burning herb to create warmth and energy) cupping (the application of suction cups to draw out toxins or pathogens) and guasha.
Please try to avoid coffee and alcohol immediately before or after your session. Also try and ensure that you can rest a little afterwards.
If you are on medication or have had recent medical test results, please bring details of these with you.
