Frequently Asked Questions
What does a treatment involve?
You will also have the opportunity to discuss in complete confidence any concerns or troubles you may currently be dealing with.
After your consultation I will carry out a number of short non invasive physical diagnostic tests including blood pressure, temperature distribution and pulse taking. In most cases, aside from the most complex, this is then followed by your first treatment.
Adjunctive therapies may be used including the use of moxibustion and cupping for specific conditions as appropriate.
Subsequent appointments take up to three quarters of an hour, and include discussion of your progress and your treatment to date.
Does it hurt?
Many find acupuncture relaxing and feel very calm after a treatment; you may also feel a little tired or sleepy so resting afterwards may be beneficial.
