Every woman’s needs are different, and we are ever mindful of the importance of tailoring treatment to the individual. Before embarking on treatment we recommend an initial consultation (usually one hour) with our experienced acupuncturist to discuss the issues which are of concern.
These can range from general anxiety to period pains to premenstrual headaches or preconception planning. By considering the symptoms in the context of your lifestyle, general health and medical history, we are able to explore the underlying factors that may be contributing to your condition. From there we can formulate the treatment plan that best suits you.
