Initial treatments include taking a full medical history and looking at the pulse, tongue, spinal alignment and abdomen, as well as examination of areas of tension and pain. Using Acupuncture combined with numerous other manual therapies, the body’s process of rebalancing, and therefore healing, is initiated and supported. A likely treatment course will be discussed but in most cases it is advised to have three treatments and then reassess symptoms and general well being.
Where clear patterns occur further questions and life style adjustments will be discussed. All healing requires changes to be made in the daily practices of the patient; for it was these practices that have lead to imbalance. Without resolving the root cause permanent long-term healing will not be achieved. By combining life pattern changes with acupuncture, manual therapies and relaxation of the mind the healing process can be greatly shortened.
