WHAT TO EXPECT


  • 1. DIAGNOSING

    First, we talk about what might be bothering you, ask a series of detailed questions to get a better understanding about what is going on for you. We also check your pulse and/or the colour and texture of your tongue.

  • 2. TREATMENT

    It is important to understand that first and foremost you have absolute control throughout your entire treatment experience. We will check in with you every step of the way to make sure you understand and consent to any and all processes associated with the treatment. Usually clothing doesn’t need to be removed (apart from shoes and socks). With your permission, Jeff will press on parts of your body with his hands to complete the diagnosis. Jeff will explain what’s going on, his proposed approach, and with permission, apply a small number of very thin acupuncture needles (more about acupuncture). Once the needles are in, Jeff leaves the room., allowing you time to relax for approx 20-30 mins. You will be given a call button in case you need help.

  • 3. YOUR PLAN

    After the treatment, we talk about what can happen next. An effective treatment plan may require more than one consultation to ensure your symptoms abate and do not return. Herbs, diet, exercise and lifestyle adjustments may also be recommended as part of your plan (more about herbs). Jeff will discuss your best options and respect your right to decide on further action.

WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?

Whatever is bothering you, we are likely to have a treatment strategy for it – including: stress relief, muscle pain, digestive issues, reproductive health, migraines.
