Your first visit involves taking a medical history and discussing how acupuncture can help you.
You can expect to have your pulse and blood pressure taken during this initial meeting. Regularly taking your pulse is an important diagnostic part of our practice procedure. I combine your first acupuncture treatment as part of this initial consultation.
This meeting also provides an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have about the treatment you will receive whilst at Willow Acupuncture.
Following treatments will be based on information offered and observations made in the first appointment along with any additional patient feedback. Acupuncture using fine needles either commences or continues during the second appointment and treatments are tailored to each individual and will vary from person to person.
How often is treatment needed?
This will vary for each patient and will be linked to health concerns that are being addressed. Some chronic long term illness may benefit from regular treatment over a period of time while relief from an acute health problem might be achieved in a comparatively short time span. My observation has indicated that individual progress is generally different for each person which in turn may affect the frequency of treatments.
