Your First Consultation
The first meeting is an opportunity to explore your concerns in great detail and in the context of your overall health. Our acupuncturists will discuss your Chinese Medicine diagnoses and the proposed treatment plan. Treatment with acupuncture will start at the first appointment. Small, comfortable needles are inserted painlessly into acupuncture points across the body; most people find acupuncture incredibly relaxing and often fall asleep. Depending on the conditions, the benefits of acupuncture can be felt very quickly.
Our acupuncturists will clearly tell you how many treatments they think you will need and the ideal treatment interval. Some people need to come weekly while others may need less frequent treatment. Follow Up treatments are an hour with the majority of that time taken up with having acupuncture in our comfortable treatment rooms.
It’s important to think of acupuncture as a process toward wellness; although some conditions need only one treatment, it is far more common to need a course of treatments.
