Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Hobart Tasmania - MISSION STATEMENT
To serve the community, providing insight and education to clients and the public, increasing awareness of alternative ideas and paradigms, so they may empower their own health
So How Does Our Clinic Operate?
When you decide you want to book in for an Acupuncture session with us in Hobart, the first session is a “get to know you” and also a treatment, so it usually takes slightly longer than a standard return consult. Sessions usually run for about 45 mins but sometimes a bit longer, the initial consult in particular. We like to talk through everything and see how you are doing and what has brought you to book in. Depending on what’s happening, during a treatment, the therapies can include Acupuncture, cupping, electroacupuncture, ear acupuncture and Herbal Formulae.
During a treatment we might discuss different perspectives of how to look at diet, health, or how chinese Medicine looks at well-being in general.
Another key discussion point is what the plan might be and how to get there. So there may be the discussion of how Acupuncture usually works and how you can get the most out of it, how the treatment schedule might look. After the treatment session we can see how you’re feeling and find out if you have any questions relating to it and offer some advice on when to come in for the next session, with your agreement.
In the initial few sessions of Acupuncture, we try to work out how you are responding to the treatment, because every person has their own unique physiology and psychology. This is important, because it guides us on how your unique treatment plan should look like. We might follow up briefly with patients with a non intrusive text to see how the first sessions went. This is a good chance for you to let us know what you might be noticing and any questions that come up, feel free to share.
During the journey, we will touch base during every visit and continuously monitor what is happening. If any changes to the treatment plan need to be made, we can adjust as and when needed. As always, it’s always a good idea to ask questions during treatment or the time between treatments, if you are wondering about the Acupuncture, how the Acupuncture works or the overall process in general. Let us know, we are here to serve.
