What can you expect at the consultation?

At the first consultation a thorough detailed medical and lifestyle history will be recorded and very specific questions will be asked about current symptoms. The pulse will be taken on both wrists and the tongue will be examined. A full body alignment assessment will be undertaken to help reach a beneficial outcome. From the information you provide, a diagnosis and a treatment plan will be formulated according to Chinese medicine theory. Lifestyle and dietary advice may be given. This consultation followed by a first treatment will take up to 2 hours.

At this consultation please bring a list of medication and any supplements being taken.
It is important to eat a light meal before any acupuncture treatment. Wearing loose and comfortable clothes will assist with locating the acupuncture points easily.


Most health insurance companies cover the cost of treatments when the acupuncture treatment is carried out by a BAcC registered acupuncturist. Please check with your insurer directly.
