How does it work?
Your first visit will last an hour and a half, during which you will discuss your condition and your general health. Louise will then discus your treatment plan with you, which may include other therapies such as moxibustion and cupping. You will then receive your first treatment along with lifestyle and nutritional therapy recommendations.
Following your initial appointment, subsequent treatments last 1 hour. Intervals between sessions will be decided on at the first consultation, but may change as you respond to treatment.
How much does it cost?
The initial consultation, lasting 1.5 hours, costs £65. Subsequent treatments, lasting an hour, cost £45.
Is it safe?
All needles used are sterile packed, single use needles, which are incinerated after use.
