Chinese Medicine Consultation

During a Chinese Medicine consultation your practitioner is concerned with all aspects of a patient’s health such as medical and family history, pain sensations, digestive functioning, sleeping patterns, emotional states well as other relevant information such occupation and living conditions.  A small physical examination includes palpation of the pulse at both wrists and inspection of the tongue.

With the acquired information your practitioner is able to assess the Chinese medicine disease pattern and determine the most appropriate, individualised treatment for you. This makes a Chinese medical treatment very individual and is one of its great strengths. 


How long do I need treatment ?

The aim of the treatment is to restore balance.  Once this is achieved the treatment is complete. Chinese Herbal treatment may take between 4-6 months. Acupuncture treatments can take from 3-12 sessions, depending on the duration of the problem.  Some chronic problems may require longer treatments while acute problems may only require one visit.


Acupuncture and herbs are both an integral part of Chinese medicine practice, which may help patients to manage a range of symptoms, for example pain, stress and fatigue.

Chinese medicine is generally considered to be safe but occasionally (as with all health treatments) it may be associated with possible adverse reactions in individual cases.
