ConsultationAt the initial consultation, I will take a detailed case history including main complaints, dietary habits, medical history and examination of tongue and pulse. The information gained will lead me to propose and discuss with the client a therapy plan (possibly including acupuncture) to address the health problems presented. This process takes usually about 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Follow up appointments last approximately 50-60 minutes. The number of treatments needed varies with each individual and is dependent on the condition treated.
