On your first visit it will be necessary to add approximately 20-30 minutes prior to your holistic treatment session. This will allow time for a thorough consultation to be taken. You will need to give details about your general lifestyle, including personal details, diet, sleeping patterns, medical history and stress levels. This will enable the most effective treatment plan to be determined.

In some instances, it may not be possible to continue with the session as there may be contra-indications to the treatment. For example, there could be a particular medical condition that may be aggravated by the treatment. In this case, it will become necessary to obtain approval in writing from your GP before treatment can commence.

Please read the contra indications.

Details will be recorded on a consultation form, your name, address, medical history and other factors such as stress levels, exercise and relaxation habits.
