In your first appointment I will discuss with you your main reason for coming for treatment, as well as your medical history, lifestyle, etc., in order to assess your condition and to formulate a treatment strategy.
The choice is always yours as to whether you have treatment with Shiatsu, acupuncture or herbs. I will discuss with you which mode/s of treatment you would prefer, which might be best suited to your needs, and whether a combination of these therapies might be appropriate.
Before we can commence treatment, I will also need you to sign an Informed Consent form. You can read that here.
A standard session is one hour, and I see only one client at a time. In the first session, depending on the complexity of the case, the time spent taking your history may mean less ‘hands-on’ treatment time than in subsequent sessions.
Confidentiality will be absolutely respected at all times.
Please note that it may be necessary to loosen or remove some items of clothing for acupuncture treatment.
Please arrive on time. I cannot keep the next client waiting by extending appointments beyond the allotted time.
