“To wait for the illness to develop before remedying it,
For the disorder to form before taking care of it,
To wait until one is thirsty before digging the well,
To wait for battle before forging weapons,
Is this not too late?”
Nejing suwenchapter 2 (3rd BC)
Often when people contact me, they know what they want help with but often they don’t know what is the most effective way of dealing with it. I am happy to advise and my extensive knowledge helps to resolve problems quickly.
With most treatments it is unrealistic to expect long term problems to be resolved in one session. For that reason, with new Patients, I offer a free half-hour consultation to discuss their concerns and give some idea about whether I can help and what the best course of action would be.
With acupuncture, as a new patient, the minimum number of treatments you can book for is five sessions. This is because realistically, it takes five sessions to start to unravel the puzzle of your energy system. These sessions are usually weekly but sometimes I will suggest longer intervals. This gives me the best chance to solve your problems. My job is a bit like a detective, piecing together a complicated puzzle to help you return to health. I do also offer longer sessions for people who are travelling a long way as some of my patients travel over two hours to see me.
With Healing, treatments can be given in the clinic or distantly and sometimes I will suggest using acupuncture when you are present and healing when you are unable to get to the clinic. Like acupuncture, healing is very effective and the two systems together provide a very robust method of helping people to recover from mental, emotional and physical illnesses.
With Laser Treatments, sometimes this can be added into a session and sometimes treatment needs to be given separately with specific times between treatments. I am happy to advise you.
I don’t generally do full series of Structural Integration now, but instead refer to my daughter who is working locally. I am happy to do small pieces of work to resolve sports and other physical injuries but often will recommend a combination of therapies to help.
