What type of clients work well with acupuncture Brisbane practitioner Peter Kington?

What should I expect when I attend my initial consultation?
Peter sets aside extra time for your initial consultation. Depending on why you are seeking his help, Peter will take a detailed case history. This case history will include establishing an historical timeline, noting your key signs and symptoms and asking other questions around secondary signs and symptoms.
Sometimes, as part of this consultation, Peter may ask you to lie on a massage table and he will poke around your legs, arms and maybe even abdomen – palpation is a key part of the Chinese medicine diagnosis in his acupuncture Brisbane clinic in Greenslopes.
Peter will take your pulse and perhaps even look at your tongue, he might ask questions about family history and also, importantly, questions around what expectations you might have in terms of outcomes.
What happens in follow-up consultations?
Follow-up consultations are quicker than initial consultations.
The consultation will begin with Peter inviting you to report back about any changes you might have noticed in your condition.
Change is an important word for Peter in his acupuncture Brisbane clinic in Greenslopes, because it includes observations of things which are better, things which are worse and also things which might just be the same. Peter will note your observations down and ask appropriate follow-up questions.
After about ten minutes –give or take – Peter will invite you to hop on the treatment table where he will start the treatment.
