A classical approach in a modern clinic

  3. Customized treatments for each patient...because you are unique.

What to expect from an acupuncture treatment with Briony

 

After taking your case history and medical details, the session begins with a hands on diagnostic process - your pulse, tongue and abdomen give information that will inform the treatment.

 

This involves gentle touch on your hands, feet and belly, sensing temperature and quality of your skin and the finer details of your pulse.

 

Treatment begins with a soft, hands on tissue release and then gentle application of high quality, super fine needles at acupoints, or use of a teishin (non-inserstion) for the needle phobic;

Moxabustion - burning of pure mugwort on treatment points or tight muscles.

 

Let the healing relaxation begin....!
