On your first visit to the Naturopath, Anne Hughes, a detailed
assessment is carried out. All aspects of the person are taken
into consideration including past and present medical history,
prescribed medication, lifestyle, diet and emotional factors.
Anne will also utilise other traditional diagnostic skills,
including tongue and pulse diagnosis. Nutrition and lifestyle
advice form part of the meetings, whilst acupuncture and/or
herbal medicine are also available if requested.
Education forms part of the process so that you are encouraged
to become more aware of your health and your body's functioning,
thus empowering you to take responsibility for your own well-being.
The first visit is 60 to 90 minutes, (depending on whether
herbal medicine or acupuncture is required) and follow up
visits will be for 30 to 60 minutes.
