Taking care of your healing

What to expect, from initial consultation to treatment plan

Joshua’s clinical practice is based in Didsbury, Manchester, incorporating Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Classical Homeopathy, Alexander Technique and Professional Supervision. In special circumstances, and by arrangement, treatment in the patient’s own home can be arranged.

What to expect

During your first consultation, Joshua will take a detailed history in order to build a complete picture of you. As well as any symptoms you are experiencing, he will explore any childhood ailments and serious family illnesses, ask about your diet and nutrition, your daily exercise and life habits. This initial diagnostic session will be 90 minutes.

Subsequent sessions generally last about 50-60 minutes and the number and frequency of treatments will vary according to individual needs.

Each treatment focuses on the whole person, aiming to strengthen the body, nurture the spirit and renew vitality.
