A consultation will include taking a full case history or a health review for existing clients. Ideally, I will look at your tongue and face for diagnostic purposes.
Once we have discussed your health needs, I will then create a personalised treatment plan for you. This may include; Bach Flower remedy, Tissue Salt Remedy, Acupressure advice, Moxibustion, Ear Seeds, Nutrition and Lifestyle advice. Remedies and treatment equipment will be sent to you in the post.
Dr Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician, and pathologist developed the Flower Essences during the 1920’s and 30’s in the UK. There are 38 remedies in the system and each is associated with a basic human emotion.
The remedies are prepared in liquid form, preserved in brandy and are mixed to help balance your current emotional situation.
Discovered by Dr Schuessler, who was a Homeopath in the 1800s, these twelve minerals are essential for good cellular health and the function of a healthy body. When these twelve vital cell salts are imbalanced or insufficient, the body becomes unhealthy.
Tissue salts, in the form of small rounds pillules, are non-toxic and non-addictive, safe to use with prescription medicines, safe to use during pregnancy and safe for children and the elderly to take.
Tissue salts remedies are also available as a cream for external uses.
Acupressure follows the same principles as Acupuncture, but without the needles. Pressure is applied at specific points on the body to help to promote healing. Ideally, you would use your thumb or middle finger and then press or massage the specified point. Full details with illustrations will be provided.
Moxibustion is a treatment method involving heating specific acupuncture points on the body by burning a herb called Mugwort. Moxa is used to move Qi and Blood and, as one of the underpinnings of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that pain and illness can occur when Blood and Qi are stagnant, this makes moxa a great potential treatment option.
I will provide a smoky stick-on moxa which can be used at home. If I feel this is an appropriate treatment for you, I will provide full information on how to use it along with safe use instructions.
Moxa is safe to use, but must be done so with care. You will be asked to sign a patient consent form for self-treatment stating that you confirm that I have shown you how to use this treatment on yourself and that you have demonstrated competency in using it.
Auricular modalities can be very effective with treating a myriad of health complaints and Ear Seeds may be recommended to help support your health. This involves small Vaccaria Seeds that are attached to a small, clear sticky plaster being placed onto specific points on the outer ear. These points are to be pressed on throughout the day.
Ear seeds, full instructions and clinical wipes will also be included.
