What to expect

The Initial Diagnosis appointment will last approximately 1.5 hours, as it includes a case history, medical history, family history, lifestyle, sleep pattern. Thereafter, sessions will be 45 minutes to one hour.

After the first treatment, if possible aim to relax for the rest of the day. At least I would advise against scheduling anything too demanding; sometimes there is a need to sleep and healing will be enhanced if you are under no pressure.

Generally avoid alcohol on the day of treatment. I also advise against wearing strong scents or heavy make-up on the day.

I will need to know about any medication you are taking and the dosage. Please bring a list with you on your first visit.

I will initially recommend you come for treatment once a week until improvement has been established (normally this happens after 4 – 6 weeks). After which, frequency of treatment depends on your individual condition and we can work towards gradually spacing out your treatments. An occasional ‘top up’ treatment (perhaps once every 3 months) is then required to keep you healthy. Some patients notice an improvement in their main complaint more quickly than others.

Your treatment will be individually tailored to your needs. Treatment addresses you as a ‘whole person’, not just your immediate symptoms. You can therefore experience renewed energy levels, mental clarity and inner calm.
