What To Expect
If you’re new to alternative medicine and all what it entails, don’t worry! We will be more than happy to help you decide what treatment will be best suited to your needs.
You should always come comfortably clothed to your appointments. Some treatments may require the patient to disrobe to their underwear. This is most common with certain Acupuncture treatments.
We recommend that you arrive a few minutes early to your first appointment. This will give you time to fill in your consultation form, which will give us helpful insight into your background, any current issues you have and how best to treat them. A treatment course will be then agreed with you.
A typical treatment normally starts with a discussion into what you are looking to achieve, or if you have been before, an update on how you have been feeling. We will then examine your tongue and take your pulse – both strange and interesting practices!, however, they are rather important prognostic tools in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). After getting comfortable on the treatment bed, you will be treated with your agreed therapy. After your treatment, you will be left to get dressed, whist we prepare a cup of herbal tea for you to bring your experience to a close.
An average treatment lasts 45 minutes.
Our range of treatments complement any other form of treatment, exercise programs, medication and can be tailored to any special requirements, such as pregnancy or sports or surgical injuries.
Please talk to us about what treatment plans are available and that could best suit you or your family.
