A consultation at your home is possible if it is medically necesarry.
A regular consultation takes 50 to 60 minutes. During the initial consultation the emphasis will be on our discussion; the treatment time (acupuncture) will be relatively short. You may consider the treatment during the initial consultation as your introduction to acupuncture. Follow-up consultations for adults and for children during which needles are inserted also take 50 to 60 minutes. In these cases the emphasis is on the acupuncture and possible additional treatment methods.
Children’s follow-up treatment with only patched is a brief consultation. This usually involves a follow-up consultation during which no needles are inserted, but band-aids are applied: Serica therapy or Meridian Colour Therapy. This will generally be the case for children up to about 7 years old.
In case acupuncture is included in the treatment of children, the session will last 50 to 60 minutes and thus is considered as a regular consultation.
An introduction (consultation without treatment) may be given in exceptional circumstances. Consultations are not available over the phone. Obviously you are invited to inform by phone whether acupuncture is appropriate for your request for help.
You do not need a referral from your GP or your specialist for acupuncture treatment. I do, however, advise you to inform your GP that you are being treated with acupuncture.
