What to Expect on Initial Consultation?
An initial consultation will take 1 to 1.5 hrs depending on the case. What do we need from you? Any recent medical tests such as, X-Rays, CT Scans, MRI Scans, blood test results and reports from your GP or specialist depending on your medical situation.
However if none of these are required a thorough medical history will be taken.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has some unique clinical examination techniques such as looking at the patients tongue and feeling the radial pulse on both wrists.
Initial Consultation always includes Acupuncture. Cupping, Gua Sha, or Tuina (Traditional Chinese Massage) may also be included.
How many sessions will I need?
Treatment strategies vary, however it is recommended to book four consecutive treatments. Chinese Medicine is very effective for treating a number of diseases. It takes time and patience it is important for the patient to understand this. Sometimes patients only need two treatments others four to six it always varies on the case. Our goal is to minimise follow-up appointments and empower our patients, educate and enable them to take responsibility for their own health as best they can outside treatments.
We require 24hrs notice for cancellation of appointment. If you do have to cancel within 24hrs you will be charged for appointment.
