Initial Assessment

I will use a number of different methods to get a complete picture of your health and lifestyle, including taking a full medical history, feeling your pulses, and looking at your tongue. Based on this information I will make a Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis and put together a personal treatment plan, which I will discuss with you. I may suggest a combination of different treatment options, depending on what I feel is appropriate for you and how your symptoms are presenting. I will always discuss the plan and treatment options with you. My approach will always be a holistic one, taking into account your main symptoms and underlying root cause(s). At the start of our initial meeting I will ask you to sign a consent form. You can however stop treatment at any point during our session. You can also stop me at any point to ask questions or gain clarification if needed.

Generally I use Acupuncture as the primary support for clients, for both Emotional and Physical symptoms. The Chinese Medicine Non Invasive Treatments and Naturopathic Support are used to compliment and support your Acupuncture treatment, if they are appropriate for you. If however you feel that Acupuncture is not for you, we can then discuss these additional tools as an alternative,  and any other ways in which I can support you without using needles.

I do not sell any products, however I will discuss with you additional naturopathic advice so you can continue your treatment at home. The important thing is that YOU understand what is happening in your body and understand how certain foods, supplements etc can help support you between treatments.
