What should you expect from a consultation and treatment with Ann?
The first part of the session is the consultation: Ann will spend time talking with you and noting your health issues. She will then check and analyze your pulses and your tongue, and will perform additional checks depending on your health condition to get a fuller picture of your state of health so that she can develop a treatment plan for you.
The second part of the session is the acupuncture treatment. You will experience a quiet and relaxing time after extremely thin single use needles are inserted safely and accurately at acupuncture points by your highly qualified, experienced and gentle practitioner. You rest comfortably while the needles do their work.
The third part of the session is after the withdrawal of the needles. Ann will recheck your signs and symptoms to assess how much benefit you have gained from the treatment. She will discuss a suggested treatment plan with you which addresses all aspects of your condition, and she may offer advice and suggestions on diet, exercise and herbs where necessary.
