PATIENT INFORMATION

Your First Appointment

  • Try to arrive to your appointment early.  This will give you plenty of time to complete any necessary paperwork and relax before your treatment.
     

  • Bring a list of current medications and/or supplements, as well as any medical reports or results that may be relevant.
     

  • It is advised to eat a light meal or snack a few hours prior to appointment.
     

  • Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be easily rolled up to the knees.
     

  • Try not to brush or scrape your tongue prior to your appointment as we look at your tongue as part of the initial consultation.

Post Treatment Advice

Here are a few tips that we suggest to enhance the effect of our treatment:

 

  • It is normal to feel a little tired, very relaxed or energised after a treatment.
     

  • Some people can feel a little light-headed after a session.  This is normal and related to the release of endorphins during treatment.  We suggest having a light snack and rest post-treatment in this case.
     

  • Drink at least 2-3 glasses of water following an Acupuncture session to assist any toxins to be flushed out of the body.
     

  • Sometimes small bruises, lumps or pain may occur after treatment.  This is an indication of stagnation and blockages in the body moving and clearing.  They will usually resolve within a few days.
     

  • We recommend avoiding vigorous exercise and alcohol post-treatment as your body is rebalancing and adjusting to the changes.
     

  • Try to remember or take notes of how you responded to treatment.  This is important for us to know so that follow-up treatments can be designed to best assist you.
