When did you last spend 45 minutes with your GP discussing your health and well-being?
Consultation is about building a deep understanding of you; and creating a personal treatment plan.
Learning about you...
Unlike Western Medicine, I practice an integrated form of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture which means I focus on you in a more holistic way. Conditions such as tiredness, worry, headaches, lack of sleep are connected to the imbalance of your entire system. Acupuncture isn't a pill, but a way of bringing your whole-self back into balance.
Acupuncture treatments focus on using the body's natural points and channels to bring you back to a state of well-being. It is often the case that the visible symptom or problem is either being caused by an underlying deficiency in your system or an excess of something in your system.
For muscular skeletal (sports injuries, bad backs etc.) the treatment will likely target the specific area and areas further away. For other conditions the focus of treatment may be in locations quite far away from trouble-spot. The learning phase of consultation helps me gain a clear picture of what we need to treat.
The feeling of the needle is for most not noticeable; but there is a sensation when I locate the point which most people find causes a slight tightening sensation around the area itself, but is not painful.
I also practice a Chinese technique called Guasha; translating directly from Chinese as, “to scrape away fever" and also cupping. Again most people find these refreshing forms of treatment.
