|Your initial session will take approximately 1.5 hours where I will take a full case history to get a complete picture of your health and lifestyle. This includes detailed information about you – your main health concerns, a full medical history, questioning your systems (sleep, appetite and digestion) as well as pulse and tongue diagnosis. We will then agree on the most appropriate treatment for you. Follow up sessions will take approximately 45minutes to an hour.

|Following your initial consultation and 1st treatment, it is recommended to follow up with a course of 5 weekly sessions, but frequency will vary depending on the nature of your individual condition, whether it is chronic or acute, the duration of the problem and lifestyle factors. As your condition improves, treatment can be spaced out.
Some patients decide to have preventative treatment on a less regular basis to maintain good health.
If you are seeking treatment for gynaecological conditions or to enhance your fertility, I would recommend 12 treatments over a three month period so we can effectively chart progress over three cycles.
|In addition to acupuncture treatment, Annabel may incorporate other forms of Chinese Medicine such as Tui Na, Cupping, Moxibustion and lifestyle advice into her treatments.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of acupuncture with Annabel before making an appointment.
