Your First Session

Your initial session will take approximately 1-1.5 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 40 minutes.

Frequency of Treatment

Following your initial consultation and first treatment, it is recommended to follow up with a course of 5 weekly sessions, but the frequency will vary depending on the nature of your 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.

Other Treatments
