Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Diagnosis & Treatment
We offer acupuncture and Chinese herbal consults in a collaborative practice.
This means that at your first appointment you will have the benefit of two fully licensed Chinese Medical practitioners present to hear and review your case, as well as plan and strategize treatments that will best suit you. We know from past experience that two heads are better than one, and you benefit from our diverse backgrounds and trainings.
After the initial treatment, you choose a primary practitioner for follow up visits. If your primary practitioner is away on holiday or unavailable, you have a back-up practitioner who knows your case.
All three practitioners also meet regularly to review and discuss our patients’ progress. So you benefit from our collaborative style not only for the first treatment but also in an on-going manner.
Typically the initial treatment includes a brief acupuncture treatment. Follow-up weekly visits allow for longer treatments, and Chinese herbs are prescribed typically after 2-3 weeks of treatments.
