What can I expect during an Acupuncture/Chinese Herbal medicine consultation?

At your first appointment, I will ask you a series of questions so I can gain a full understanding of your current health condition. By grouping these symptoms together, I can then determine any patterns of disharmony in your body and discuss the best treatment options for you.

What does Acupuncture feel like?

When a skilled Acupuncturist inserts Acupuncture needles, sometimes you will feel nothing & other times a slight pinch or prick, as if someone is gently pinching your skin. Following this, you may experience a numb, tingly or dull ache sensation when the needles are stimulated. We will always ensure you are comfortable & patients often feel so relaxed they fall asleep during their treatment!

For your initial consultation please allow 1 hour 15 minutes and for follow up consulations 45-60 minutes.
