What to Expect
You will be greeted with a warm smile when you arrive at the stylish and comfortable clinic.
You will be treated with expertise and care by a dedicated and knowledgeable professional.
You will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
At the first consultation you will be asked about your condition. This will involve questions regarding your main complaint, like signs and symptoms that have been present, your medical history, current dietary, digestive and urinary patterns, emotional state and mental wellbeing.
A unique pulse and tongue diagnosis will be taken as is normal for traditional Chinese medicine.
Depending on your condition, a physical examination may be required, and sometimes a mobility test will be carried out to assess the extent and severity of the presenting complaint.
It is advisable not to eat for a couple of hours before treatment. Some treatments enhance digestive and urinal function, so it is a good idea to empty bowel and bladder prior to treatment to avoid any discomfort.
Typically sessions will last for 1 hour including the consultation time. Certain treatments may require more time but I will advise you during the first consultation.
Subsequent visits will have a much shorter consultation and will be more focused on the treatment.
Results will vary for different complaints; some conditions may require only a few treatments and some may take a longer period to have an effect. Again, this will be discussed before treatment.
After the treatment it is normal to feel slightly sore and achy for the next few days as the body balances itself. You may also experience tiredness and occasionally disorientation. It is advisable not to do anything strenuous immediately after treatment and to relax as much as possible for the remainder of the day.
