Consultations with John Tindall – by appointment only
Allow approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes for the initial consultation, which can be conducted in English, Spanish, Chinese or Polish.
Follow-up appointments will take about 45 – 60 minutes.
We have 5 private therapy rooms for warmth, relaxation and comfort.
John uses both acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine to optimise the flow of Qi and promote healing and wellbeing. However, every person is different and therefore, John tailors both the acupuncture session and Chinese Herbal Medicine prescriptions to suit each individuals personal circumstances.
At the initial consultation, John will use a standard symptom questionnaire to establish a diagnosis, in Traditional Chinese Medicine terms. Tongue and pulse diagnosis are also used.
Should my doctor know?
Acupuncture can be used alongside conventional medicine. If you have been prescribed medication you may wish to tell your doctor that you are planning to have acupuncture.
You should always tell your acupuncturist about any medications you may be taking. It is helpful to bring along medical test results and any medications, in their original containers.
Chinese herbal medicine
Chinese herbal Medicine will only be prescribed following a face-to-face consultation with John Tindall.
Herbs are normally made up while the client is having acupuncture.
“The Green Healer” is located inside the Yuan Centre. It is a Chinese herbal medicine specialist dedicated to dispensing approximately 400 herbs in dried and powder form.
These days most people prefer to take herbs in powder form, but the Green Healer also dispenses a wide variety of dried raw herbs. Full instructions on preparation and dosage will be given.
Most people feel significant improvement after their first session. However, some conditions take years to develop and subsequently, it may take a few months to feel the full benefits of the acupuncture and Chinese herbs. John will discuss any follow-up appointments with you.
