During you first consultation, I will establish your particular imbalances or syndromes. I will ask about your symptoms and how your body functions, such as sleep patterns, your medical history, appetite and temperature perception amongst others. Traditional Chinese medicine also takes note of the pulse and tongue. After this has been done your syndrome may be determined and a treatment plan can be discussed with you.
Initially treatment will be weekly but as the condition improves this may be less frequent. Response to, and success with, treatment will vary with each individual. There are no restrictions as to who can have acupuncture and it can combine well with both western drug therapies as well as other conventional medical treatments.
