In our initial consultation I use traditional Chinese medicine methods to assess your overall body balance.
First checking pulse and indicators:
- I check all the indicators in your body to check for balance and energy flow.
- I check your pulses, your tongue, your eyes and skin condition.
Health concerns. We discuss your current health concerns. I will also ask you a range of questions about aspects of your life including sleep, diet, exercise and emotional/mental health. We are aiming to identify and treat the cause(s) of the problem and treat that, not just the symptoms.
Other medications. We look at any other treatments and medications you may be taking, and how my treatment can complement and/or supplement them.
Assessment. During the initial consultation I will determine which organs are out of balance and what needs adjusting.
Treatment plan. I will prepare and discuss with you a treatment plan for you based on traditional Chinese medicine techniques including acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and herbal medicine, nutrition and exercise.
The initial consultation is detailed and usually takes one and a half hours, including your first treatment session.
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions about my treatments or to make an appointment.
