I treat each patient as an individual. I am happy to advise on the best treatment option sometimes using a combined approach works best.
Traditional Chinese Medicine always starts with a Full health Consultation.
This includes asking about past illnesses, medications, and a current health profile
Chinese Herbal Medicines can be prescribed as a stand alone treatment or may be combined with Acupuncture treatment.Herbs can be prescribed in easy to take granular form .
During your first consultation I will take the time to listen to you and take account of you health past and present so that i can formulate a "TCM" diagnosis.
I will then explain this to you and together we will formulate a treatment plan to suit your needs
My approach is always to find a way to get the best, long lasting
results in the shortest space of time at the lowest cost to you.
My priority is always your health and any advice I give is with that in mind, it might even mean I say I cannot treat you but I will send you to your Doctor or another practitioner
NST bowen therapy is a gentle hands on therapy which is an ideal complement to
Chinese Medicine .It can be a really effective therapy to correct musculoskeletal problems and can be excellent when people are experiencing extreme tightness ,spasm and pain.
Chinese Medicine in its richness inspires me by being able to help you
find great results through treatments.
However I feel that it is equally important to empower you with the knowledge
to take control of your own health
In Western medicine we
have become used to taking
medicine that has an instant
Sometimes that 's just what we
need but in TCM we try to treat
the whole person not just the
symptom and that can take a
little longer to achieve
That all sounds great but how many treatments do I need ?
I always say to people think of it as a three stage process...
We make a measurable change to your symptoms, to do this it make take as little as one or two sessions if it is a simple problem. However for a more complex
picture you may be looking at at least three sessions before symptoms start to change. during this time I usually see people once a week or even twice a week.
We start to see a more lasting amelioration of the symptoms you came in with as well as a general improvement in well being. At this stage either you can stop treatment or in most cases we spread out the visits to fortnightly or monthly
At this stage we look at stopping symptoms from returning. this may mean changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise.
You may be keen to try the Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness and or some of the other activities offered within the centre.
Some people find that they like to have a treatment once every few weeks or months as maintenance
