What to expect in a treatment

The first treatment session usually lasts for an hour, starting with taking a full case history. This covers a broad spectrum of your general health background, and moves on to the specifics of the presenting condition.

I will take pulses on both of your wrists and examine your tongue to provide diagnostic information about your present and underlying health conditions. If you have a physical injury, I may give gentle palpation and massage.

This is followed by the insertion of fine stainless steel needles at specific points on the body. These are left for between 20 to 45 minutes to take effect, depending on the condition being treated. There is little pain aside from a slight pricking and no pain once the needles have been inserted. Patients generally feel very relaxed and calm after a treatment.

Subsequent sessions usually last for 45 minutes.
