Typically an hour to 90 minutes long, the initial consultation involves a thorough and extensive understanding of health and particular areas you would like assistance with. Traditional Chinese diagnostic methods used in the consultation include tongue, pulse, palpation and observation. If you have current blood tests, scans or any other relevant information regarding your health, please bring copies of these with you.
During this first encounter, my goal is to give you a clear understanding of your health, why and how your particular issue/s may have come about and what we can do to fix it. Acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, diet therapy, sho ni shin, moxibustion and lifestyle factors are tools that will be considered in this session. I will discuss with you what I feel will be most therapeutic for you to consider.

Generally 60 minutes in duration. Following on from your previous consultation, we will explore what has worked for you and what may still require further treatment and assistance. The same treatment tools are offered, but there’s just less chat time as we would have covered most of your background health information in your initial session.
Duration : 60 minutes
Price : $80
When we’ve seen each other and worked together before but you might have a new issue that’s come up, or you just want more time to discuss a particular health issue. Consider this option if you just love being in the healing space and want more time on the table to deeply relax and re balance.

Children’s Consultation and Treatment
These sessions usually last 30 minutes to provide comprehensive care for little humans. To ensure the session is calm and un rushed, please advise at the time of booking that the appointment is for a child and I’ll send you all the intake forms ahead of time so I can have an understanding of your child’s health journey. Then when you come in I might ask a few clarifying questions and you can proceed straight into the treatment. From experience, I’ve found this approach to be better for the child and better for you.
Duration : 30 minutes

Late Cancellation or No Show Fee
As I am most often booked ahead of time, and have patients on a waiting list for appointments, I appreciate as much notice as possible if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment. This allows me to allocate the appointment to another patient.
A cancellation fee applies (50% of service cost) where less than 24 hours notice is given to cancel or reschedule an appointment, or if you miss your appointment. Note, this fee does not apply for genuine emergencies.
