Acupuncture is considered beneficial for a wide range of conditions. Whatever your particular health concern, treatment is designed to affect your whole body and not just your symptoms. Many people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains such as osteoarthritis, headaches and low back pain as well as pains arising from anxiety or stress. Traditional Chinese Medicine uses fine needles or pressure to create a balance within. Finding this balance through acupuncture is becoming ever more a mainstream support for good health.
If you are wondering if acupuncture is suitable for your needs, Michael offers the opportunity for a free consultation without obligation to discuss your health issue. This can be arranged by email, the details of which can be found on the Contacts page.
From 60 - 90 mins, from £60-80
Those familiar with acupuncture will know that the process begins with what is referred to as a Traditional Diagnosis.
On the first visit, your practitioner will take a full medical history to ensure your treatment plan is based uniquely for your state of health and lifestyle. An assessment will be made to establish your treatment plan and it will also include your first treatment, hence for a full Traditional Diagnosis session Michael allows up to 90 minutes.
45 mins, £50
Once a Traditional Diagnosis session has been carried out, for subsequent treatments Michael allows 45 minutes.
When considering how many treatments someone may need, the sessions usually begin weekly for four to five visits, reducing in frequency as your body responds. Some people choose to have regular treatment simply because they find it beneficial and relaxing. Patients often find their ongoing treatment process is enhanced by Michael's passion to empower his patients with understanding the underlying causes of their illness.
