Where do the needles go?

We generally use a combination of ‘local’ and ‘distal’ points. ‘Local’ points are on located near the site of any issues we wish to address. ‘Distal’ points are on your arms and legs, below your elbows and knees.

I will always discuss what points I am going to use first and make sure that you feel comfortable.

 

How much treatment do I need?

At the initial consultation we go through your medical history and any notes or test results that you have, and combine these with a Chinese medical diagnosis to develop an individual treatment plan to suit you.

Treatment is generally advised every week to two weeks for as long as you have symptoms. Once you are in good health we advise you to come and see us from time to time to help maintain your health.
