Before your treatment
Please do not come to acupuncture treatments on an empty stomach or after you had a heavy meal. As most commonly used acupuncture points are located on your arms and legs, it is helpful to wear comfortable clothes that allow access to these areas. Increase your fluid intake after a treatment to enhance its effectiveness and do not drink alcohol that day.
At your first consultation, I will take a detailed case history including your main complaints, dietary habits, sleeping patterns and go thoroughly through your medical history. You might feel that some questions appear unrelated to your condition but they help me to get a good outline of your current life style and
health status. I finally will examine your tongue, feel your pulses on both wrists
and where necessary will palpate for areas of muscular tension.
The information I have gained during your first consultation forms the basis of
my diagnosis, which I will discuss with you in detail. Once we have agreed on a treatment plan, I will use fine single-use, pre-sterilised needles to stimulate specific acupuncture points on your body to help unblock obstructions of blood and energy flows in your body and to restore health. This process usually takes about 1.5 hours. Follow-up appointments last approximately 45-60 minutes. The number of treatments needed varies with each individual and is dependent on which
conditon is being treated.
Treatment sessions are available in English and German.
Over the years, Britta has established strong working relationships with consultants of other medical disciplines. Where necessary she will refer patients on as she believes that helping her patients is far more important than which style of treatment is employed. Read more about Comprehensive Care here.
