About Your treatment
Five Element acupuncture seeks to find and treat the underlying cause of a disease or ailment. By doing this, the patient is treated at a deeper level and health is restored. As well as treatment of initial ailments, many people report feelings of wellbeing and relaxation following treatment, as well as increased energy and clarity of thought.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body. In Five Element Acupuncture the needles are rarely left in, they are inserted for an instant to connect with the acupuncture point and then removed.
During the initial consultation a full case history will be taken including lifestyle details, diet, sleep, emotional state, and any relevant past medical history. A physical examination and some simple tests are performed to help establish a correct diagnosis. The patient will then be given their first treatment.
