Let's work together.
During initial consultations we take time to discuss your health, both past and present to get a thorough medical history.
Physical examinations may be necessary for some conditions and we may also take your pulses and look at your tongue. This will allow me to make a diagnosis from a Traditional Chinese Medicinal perspective and will inform the treatment plan and where I place the needles.
Acupuncture needles may be inserted for just a second or two, or they may be left for a while before they are removed.
The needles are so fine that most people don’t feel them being inserted & many people feel deeply relaxed during the treatment or even fall asleep, especially if they chose to listen to hypnosis during their session.
A course of treatment is usually required to get lasting results. As the effects are cumulative, weekly sessions are usually recommended to begin with for between four to six treatments, reducing in frequency as your body responds.
Fertility treatments differ slightly as it can take 3 full cycles before we start to see change. Male fertility patients require weekly treatments for 2 months as a full sperm regeneration cycle (spermatogenesis) takes about 64 days.
