Consultation

Patients are encouraged to print off and fill the "Main Consultation" form; just bring this along on your first visit. It makes the initial consultation much quicker, easier and focused on what needs to be done. Please don't send them by email because of security. There are extra forms for gynaecology, pain and digestion. If in doubt fill them in; it's better to have too much information than too little.

These forms provide both the patient and practitioner with a framework on what needs to be done and an outline for a diagnosis, as well as significantly reducing the traditional time and costs of a consultation:

Treatment

A tongue and pulse assessment is usually the first step. This is usually followed by some acupuncture (quite what happens varies a lot, but informed consent to any treatment is essential), patients are monitored (not left on their own) until the end of the session.



Nutrition and Testing

Chinese medicine is great, but it can't do everything... to cover other important areas I use an excellent nutritional company called Cytoplan that provide 'food state' supplements (they harvest the nutrients from plants they grow specially).The clinic has a wide stock of Cytoplan supplements that are sold well below the retail price.

I've also negotiated a 10% discount with Cytoplan on all sales ordered via this site (this includes on their special offers). To order direct and get the 10% discount simply follow this link and use the code HJ10:

I also refer for ultrasound diagnosis locally and have accounts with two diagnostic companies that offer metabolic, allergic and digestive function testing if that's what's needed. The testing companies are Cambridge Nutritional Sciences and Genova Diagnostics and they're leaders in their fields.
