• What happens in a session

  • What happens in a treatment?

    A treatment lasts for 45 minutes and the needles are in for 15-20 minutes so the rest of the time is taken up by diagnosing.l begin by talking to you about all aspects of your life  What I'm looking for is a pattern of symptoms because in Chinese Medicine there is never just one. If we have an imbalance in one area l would expect this to be mirrored in other areas. The treatment is gentle, collaborative process that is organic and thought-provoking.

    Although most of our symptoms present physically their root can lie in other areas, for example, emotions. If a client is experiencing migraines l would ask about their emotional wellbeing. Are there any feelings of frustration or issues of control in their lives? l will look for the root of the complaint

    With each treatment, we aim to take off the top layer of the disharmony so whatever was underneath can come to the surface.


    What happens after a treatment?

    After a treatment, we can expect direct and indirect changes. As well as a reduction in pain and symptoms, there will be a feeling of relaxation and a reduction of worry and stress, both mentally and physically. We will begin to see patterns emerging of how our day to day life affects our health.

    We are working on the balance and flow of Qi which will strengthen the immune system, give us more energy and help to improve the quality of our sleep.

    The treatment is cumulative, from the very beginning the effects will become significantly more noticeable and longer lasting as the treatment progresses.

     

    How often should l come?

    I suggest that all my clients come for an initial 6 treatments. What this does is to put down a solid foundation and there will be a marked difference in health and well being from the 1st session to the 6th. It is most beneficial for these treatments to be taken weekly

     The initial course of treatment may be enough to work on one specific complaint. However, clients may choose to continue weekly or monthly treatments to maintain well being or work on other goals. The client is in complete control.
