frequently asked questions
What will this treatment do?
This treatment involves boosting and balancing your energy system using a combination of therapies according to your particular needs. It can benefit a wide range of health problems. If you have any questions about them the therapist will be happy to advise you.
How long does treatment take?
The first consultation takes, on average, about two hours, and subsequent treatment session about one hour, but this will vary according to your needs.
How long will it take to get better?
Your recovery is dependent on many factors – the problem, the length of time you have had it and your own commitment to any advice and follow up visits which your therapist may recommend.
How often do I need to come for treatment?
An average course of treatment may entail five or six visits over three months, but every case is assessed individually, and it is important to keep your appointments, and make regular visits. Discuss this with your therapist, who will explain your treatment programme to you.
Are all patients treated in the same way?
No. Your treatment programme will be tailored to your specific needs
How much will it cost?
We recommend you attend for a consultation with your therapist and get a full personal estimate for your own treatment needs.
Can I take this treatment alongside other treatment/medicines I am taking?
Yes. The treatments used by your therapist are specifically designed to work alongside other treatment/medicines you may be taking.
What are the chances of side-effects or after-effects?
The treatments used are remarkably safe when carried out by a properly qualified therapist. Your therapist is trained to recognise conditions which require referral elsewhere.
How will I feel during and after treatment?
Usually, a feeling of peace and relaxation come over people during treatment and you should be fine to travel home alone afterwards. If you are in any doubt, you could take a friend with you on your first visit.
Should I tell my GP that I am considering complementary medicine?
We advise you to tell your GP if you are thinking about using complementary medicine. If you are taking any medication, seek their advice before you attend the practice. Where possible, we prefer to work with your GP so that your progress can be monitored and your conventional treatment adjusted accordingly.
What should I wear to my appointment?
Loose, comfortable clothing.
How do I get the most out of my treatment?
Don’t rush to and from your appointment. Choose a day when your schedule is relatively free so you can really benefit from the session. Eat only lightly before your appointment – but do try to eat something, however small.
It is important that you follow the advice you are given so that you maintain progress. And don’t miss follow-up sessions – you may think you are better but underlying problems may need sorting out.
If you are worried or have any questions about your treatment, always ring your therapist to discuss your concerns.
