Initial consultation

Involves asking for information on the following:

  • Present health and reason for treatment
  • Past medical history
  • Family medical history

Diagnosis involves: taking the pulse, observing the tongue, palpating the abdomen, neck and back.

 

Course of Treatment

  • Patients initially come for 6 – 8 sessions. The course of treatment is then reviewed.
  • For acute problems, fewer and more frequent treatments might be needed.
  • for more chronic conditions: the course of treatment may be longer.
  • In the case of Cosmetic Acupuncture a series of 12 sessions performed weekly is recommended. Results are visible around the 7th or 8th session. Monthly maintenance sessions will prolong the results as will a healthy diet and a balanced lifestyle.

 

Appointments

  • Initial consultation can take up to 90 minutes with subsequent sessions taking 45 minutes.
  • A minimum of 36 hours’ notice is required to cancel or re-arrange an appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
  • Patients must ensure they have eaten on the day of the treatment.
  • Alcohol should not be consumed before an acupuncture session and it is beneficial to try to make time to relax after treatment.
