Your first treatment session will include a diagnosis. This will allow us to work out the best treatment plan to suit your needs.
We work in a holistic way. This means understanding you as a complex being, as well as your symptoms and your medical history. The focus will be on finding out how we can help you to get the most out of this powerful system of medicine.
You have probably noticed that when you are stressed or overworked you are more likely to become ill. Conversely when you are on top of the world, your health is rarely an issue. For this reason, finding out what makes you thrive, as well as how you can avoid stress is a vital part of the treatment process.
How many treatments will I need?
Everyone responds differently to treatment, but you can usually expect to start seeing improvements within the first five sessions.
If you condition is long standing it will take a few months to cure completely. The aim is for lasting benefit, not just short term improvements.
Initially, you will need to come once a week, with each treatment building on the previous session.
Once your condition has begun to improve the treatments can be spaced out to allow your body's own healing mechanisms to take over. This phase will prevent your symptoms from returning and will ensure a continued improvement.
Soon you will reach the stage where you only need to come a few times a year as a preventative measure. You can continue to use acupuncture in this way to ensure that you maintain optimum health in body and mind.
What will it feel like?
Most people experience no more than a momentary dull ache, followed by a tingling sensation. Both during and after treatment most people describe a feeling of relaxation and invigoration.
