The Treatment

The core of Katherine’s approach is to develop the unique treatment strategy appropriate for that patient – a personalised treatment strategy. This requires her to understand the patient’s symptoms as well as their medical history, energy levels, moods, lifestyle and diet. Everyone has a different story to tell and this is key in determining their effective treatment.

The mainstay of treatment is the insertion of very fine sterile needles into acupuncture points, this may be supplemented with the use of a gently smouldering herb (moxibustion) to warm the skin first. Katherine also includes soft tissue massage (Tui Na) as a part of selected treatments, where this will be of benefit.

Patients respond best to treatments administered at suitable time intervals for their condition. Katherine’s goal is to have successful treatment from a minimum number of visits. A course often starts with weekly visits followed by spacing out the treatments once improvement has been established. Preventative acupuncture also works very well - people with conditions sensitive to the seasons will benefit from a single treatment or short course at the change of season.
