During this time I will ask you a variety of questions to try and create the best picture of you as an individual and your health. Everything that we discuss is completely confidential and will not be discussed with anyone else without your permission.
After this part of the consultation, I will then perform tongue and pulse diagnosis to complete the picture. You will then be offered suggestions which can include dietary changes, herbal supplements, massages, lifestyle changes etc. Any follow up consultations are usually 30 minutes.
