The consultation appointment lasts approximately two hours and begins with taking a full history of current symptoms or conditions, your medical health, emotional well-being, lifestyle and current medication.
The second part of the consultation includes pulse taking and energy checks.These checks give an indication as to the flow of energy within the body and help provide valuable information in order for a full diagnosis and treatment to take place.
The last part of the consultation appointment will involve the insertion of a few needles. Particular focus will be made to the points on the back, this treatment is a ‘detox’ treatment which helps to cleanse and clear the energies. In addition to the use of needles a smouldering herb called moxa is used on the points prior to needling.
Moxa has many healing and restorative properties and it is an important and beneficial part of treatment. Patients generally report that this first treatment leaves them feeling relaxed, calm and grounded.
Each treatment will include a short consultation or update on the patient’s well-being since the last appointment and then the insertion of a few needles. Every patient is individual and will respond to treatment differently, depending on the nature of the condition, how long they have had it, their overall health and the quality of their energy. In order to see the best results from treatment it is best to have weekly treatments for the first 6 sessions, however it is important to keep in mind that a long standing condition will take longer to heal.
All subsequent treatments last up to 1 hour.
CONSCIOUS THOUGHT THERAPY
These sessions can take place in the clinic or in the comfort of your own home using either Skype, FaceTime or Zoom. Sessions will be carried out either seated or reclining, again whatever is better for you. You will be verbally guided through the whole process and the only thing you need to do is answer some questions. Working with your energies tends to make you thirstier. Come to your sessions fully hydrated and continue to drink water throughout the day to help with this.
