Why is the first appointment so long?

In Traditional Acupuncture we make a diagnosis based on your physical, mental, and emotional health over time.
We take into account your medical history, your blood relative‚Äôs medical history, your lifestyle, and how your health has changed over the years. No two individuals are the same and every treatment will be individually tailored.  We will need to take notes of any medications you are taking including any holistic medicines. We will need to know your blood pressure reading, take your pulse on both wrists, and examine your tongue.  Typically the time taken is around 90 Mins but we often suggest that the patient allows up to  2 hours of their time.


The procedure for subsequent visits is less involved and normally takes 45 Mins to 1 Hour.
