What To Expect

The initial treatment, lasting about one and a half hours, will provide the acupuncturist with an opportunity to determine the nature of the body's disharmony by careful questioning and observation.

Sunnydale Natural Health Centre EntranceAcupuncture South Devon offer treatments at Sunnydale Natural Health Centre in Ivybridge, Devon and at the Plymouth Nuffield Hospital.

Acupuncture South Devon's successful and expanding practice can now also offer treatment clinics at Southernhay Clinic of Exeter.

All initial consulations are extremely thorough and will normally take one and half hours. Extensive notes and observations are made by the acupuncturist.

Diagnosis will include the inspection of the tongue for its' structure, colour and coating, and the pulses are felt for their quality and strength.Acupuncture South Devon at Sunnydale Natural Health Centre

Subsequent treatments would normally last three quarters of an hour, and occur weekly, their frequency varying from person to person and the type of condition.

Some change is usually felt within five or six treatments, although occasionally just one or two treatments are sufficient. Some people choose to have regular acupuncture to maintain good health.
