The first consultation is often the longest. Whether you’re coming in for acupuncture, homeopathy, Bach flowers, or a mixture of the three an appointment at SRCA begins in the same way as when you visit conventional doctors. History taking, examination and investigation are all important in establishing the diagnosis. However, as well as asking about your symptoms, a we will be interested in you as an individual and the unique way in which your symptoms affect you. Traditional Chinese medicine also uses examination of the tongue and pulse in order to diagnose symptoms. Questions about your lifestyle, eating habits and preferences, temperament, personality, sleep patterns and medical history help to form a complete picture of you. This picture will be matched to the symptoms of your illness in order to prescribe a particular type of treatment, tailored precisely to your specific needs. As a guide your first appointment could take anything up to an hour, with follow-up appointments typically lasting 20-30 minutes. This does vary depending on the the particular case of each patient.“How do I prepare?”
To get the most out of a consultation, it is helpful to make some notes beforehand and to think through all the issues that are affecting your health. New patients will be asked to complete a short form before their first appointment. This is a helpful way of saving time and to your advantage to do so if requested.“How do I schedule an appointment?”
