You've decided to book your acupuncture...
This ancient and gentle therapy has so much to offer, so let’s get started.
You are able to book acupuncture in York below. New patients should ensure they book an ‘Initial Consultation’ so that we can spend time setting out an appropriate treatment plan together.
Existing patients are also welcome to book below and can choose between hour or two hour long appointments. (Half hour appointments have been suspended for the short-term, please get in touch with me directly if this was your regular appointment choice.)
Please be assured that a full risk assessment has been undertaken to manage the present Covid19 situation. Temperature checks, masks, face shields, sterilising gel, social distancing, appointment spacing and meticulous cleaning are all being employed to offer you the safest acupuncture experience possible.
You will notice that all not appointment times are starting on the hour as extra time has been added between sessions to reduce patient crossover and allow cleaning.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon for your acupuncture in Acomb…
What to expect during your treatment
I like to treat in a relaxed and friendly style, which helps put my patients at ease and enable us to make the most progress as quickly as possible. Everything we discuss is confidential. It is usual for a number of issues to be considered within your treatment plan, so please have a think beforehand and decide what we should work on together. Please remember your physical and emotional health can be supported with acupuncture treatment.
I will ask you about your general health, why you are seeking help and about your lifestyle. Sleep patterns, diet, exercise, energy levels and mood will all be considered. We will also cover any questions you may have. If you take medications, please bring details.
During your treatment I will take a pulse reading on your wrists. Needling will be gentle with ultra fine, single-use sterile needles. It is likely you will need to partially undress so that needling can be undertaken. You will be provided with blankets to cover up and treated with respect at all times.
If you require special assistance with mobility, please speak to me before making your booking.
Please be aware I do not have a waiting room at the clinic.
