|What it all costs:
Your initial consultation and assessment visit will be for one and half hours and subsequent treatments sessions are 30 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on the nature of treatment you are receiving.
All fees are excluding VAT. Consultation fees are reduced for full time students, unemployed, senior citizens and the emergency services. As demand for complementary medicine increases and its beneficial effects become more widely recognised, more and more private health insurance companies are offering cover for acupuncture.

The number of treatments given and treatment frequency will depend on the condition being treated and agreed with you at the initial consultation.
Please note: Patients under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian to receive treatment.
Accepted methods of payment are cash, cheque and all debit and major credit cards.
NB: Please respect my appointment system. If you need to cancel an appointment I would appreciate it if you could let me know at least 24hrs in advance so that I can re-allocate the time. Failure to do this could result in a fee being charged.
