I am passionate about patients being treated individually and determining what approach is best for unique you. Using Chinese Medicine diagnostic skills and a wealth of Western medicine knowledge we will work together to create a plan to help you live your fullest life.
What to expect ?
As soon as you book I will send you a full consult form so we go through every aspect of your health. I operate very holistically so be prepared for los of questions about how I can help you and how you are feeling at the moment. Every little detail is really important to me.
Once I have all your information I will work through it preparing for our consult.
We will spend just under an hour together either discussing your symptoms and understanding your treatment aims.
We will discuss any recent hormone testing you have undergone and / or discuss what tests may be advisable e.g. levels of progesterone, testosterone, estrogen. If you would find it useful we can work together to know what questions to ask your GP.
We will discuss what is happening to your body and why you are feeling the way you are.
We will go through lifestyle advice. This is more than the usual reduce alcohol, caffeine, stress etc but detailed advice specifically tailored to your symptoms and what is right for you, your personal situation and your body.
I will ask to look at your tongue – which is a key diagnostic tool in Chinese Medicine and provides more clues to how I can help you specifically and your symptoms.
We will discuss how acupuncture, herbs and supplements can support you and prescribe as appropriate.
I will email a report summarising all we have discussed and an outline of the treatment plan advised.
