Please take the time to read the following information about what to expect from a treatment.

Before attending
  • Please keep any meals light

​​

Initial consultation

An initial consultation will be conducted where questions about your lifestyle and medical history will be asked.  You will be asked if you have any particular concerns or requirements. This is to help ascertain the most appropriate treatment plan for you and also to help you be clear about the treatment taking place. 

This can take a little time, but is necessary for building up a picture of your treatment needs and whether or not any treatment will be suitable.  You may choose to have a form emailed over to you for you to print off and fill out in advance of your appointment, if you would prefer. Subsequent treatments will simply require checking whether anything has changed and that the treatment plan is still appropriate to your needs.
