About your first visit
Q: Will I get treatment on the first session?
A: Yes you will. Arrive on time or a little early, complete a medical history, bring any relevant scans or reports. Then I will examine your posture, movement of joints, muscle strengths and give you hands on physical treatment if appropriate.
Q: Where do I come for my appointment?
A: 76 Blackmoor Gate, Furzton, Milton Keynes, MK4 1DB – Find us on Google Maps
Q: What will you do?
A: I am passionate about helping your body to work well for you. You might need help with back pain, shoulder pain or feel that your body lets you down. I use a wide range of techniques to help restore your posture and make your life easier. You might feel or hear a joint release, that’s great, it simply means your body is responding to movement. My aim is to improve your circulation, flow of energy and improved nutrition through blood flow. I aim to achieve a balance between opposing muscles, treating the body as a holistic unit. I normally include massage but not always. A workman recently tried to describe my treatment to a friend. He said that I give a Swiss Army knife massage using a range of tools to solve the problem. The source of the problem is often not where you feel the pain.
Q: How does acupuncture work?/strong>
A: It improves blood flow, reduces pain and promotes relaxation of muscles. Some studies showed that 50-60% of people felt a definite response.
Q: How often will I need to come?
A: That is entirely by agreement with no pressure on you. Most conditions take one to three sessions to improve. Frozen shoulder will take longer but one session is always helpful. Some people choose to come regularly to maintain their health, anything from monthly to six monthly.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: The standard price is £50. Treatments can be shortened or lengthened. For instance ultrasound, taping, laser treatment or manipulation for sports injury might be £30 for a shorter session. A longer consultation to look at scans and treat complex issues might be £60 to £65. Tell me what you need first.
