At your first appointment we will take a full history, listen to your story, and meet you where you are to design the best programme for you. Whether this is related to pain, women’s health or fertility, we will work together to achieve the best results possible for you. We use a combination of acupuncture treatments, lifestyle changes, and herbal prescriptions specific to you that will get you the best results possible as soon as possible.
We will do the first acupuncture treatment, and after the needles are placed, you will relax for 30 minutes. The first consultation and treatment normally lasts just under an hour and a half.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
Any medical tests from your doctor or BBT charts are useful in an acupuncture Consultation, so bring them along to the consultation, particularly those for Fertility Consultations. We will send an online intake form to fill out prior to the consultation. The first consultation normally lasts an hour and a half, which includes acupuncture treatment. Subsequent sessions last an hour. Normally we use needles from the knees downwards and the elbow downwards and perhaps the tummy, so it is advisable to wear loose fitting clothing, trousers and sleeves that can be rolled up.
