COST AND LOCATION
We have a range of locations across the UK, with clinic acupuncture visits across the counties. Session costs are in the region of £50-£70 for the first assessment session which varies from 1-2 hours, and £40-50 for follow up appointments which are 30mins – 1hour.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Acupuncture aims to treat the root cause of any issue or condition that you are experiencing so at your first visit your Practitioner will ask you questions about the condition in addition to a general health history.
You will also be asked questions about your sleep, appetite and digestion. Some questions may appear unrelated to your condition, but your answers allow for a complete picture of your health and any imbalances in your body’s energy (or Qi) to be established, allowing for more tailored treatment to be conducted. You are likely to find treatment benefits more than your main complaint. Pulses on both wrists will be taken and your tongue will also be looked at – pulse and tongue diagnosis play a crucial part in putting together the picture of any imbalances in your body.
The first session will usually include a first treatment and extremely fine, sterile needles are commonly placed into the arms and / or legs, so wearing loose clothing that can be rolled up is useful, otherwise a treatment gown will be provided for you to wear and this will be the case if the initial treatment involves points on your back being treated too. You’ll be asked to relax on the treatment couch and here the relaxation really starts as your body’s Qi is gently brought back into balance. Patients are often surprised at how slight the sensation, termed DeQi, really is and usually find treatment extremely relaxing.
Ongoing sessions or packages will be booked, subject to your needs and goals.
WHAT’S THE BUZZ
Kerry is such a kind, intuitive practitioner who carefully and systematically works out the best course of treatment. I left every time feeling that not only had my symptoms been treated but I’d had a hearty dose of TLC!
I would recommend Olivia in a heartbeat. She is a highly dedicated, experienced & caring acupuncturist, who really listened to me before carefully assessing my condition. In my particular case, she helped to regulate & to calm my very heavy & uncomfortable periods. Her treatments are relaxing, & more importantly very effective!
I am not sure how to describe the experience I had with Nicola. She is such a lovely lady and a pleasure to talk to even about the most sensitive topics. I felt completely at ease and comfortable whilst in her company. She is professional and compassionate in equal measure. I cannot recommend her enough. I think it’s also important to say I had no experience of acupuncture or counselling before this and Nicola has certainly converted me to the power acupuncture can have! She will listen to all your concerns and thoughts and reassured you at every step of your appointments. It got to a point where j was looking forward to seeing her! I also needed her to come to my home for some of the sessions and she was completely accommodating of that too.
