On your initial visit, we first evaluate your condition and in simple or acute cases, we soon proceed to apply appropriate treatment. For chronic or complex disease conditions or for a thorough wellness assessment, we sit down for an extensive evaluation. To develop a complete understanding of your current physical health and constitution, vulnerabilities and personal tendencies, we may utilize a variety of assessment tools including careful review of medical history, current complaints, physical and emotional symptoms, observation and palpation of affected body areas and special points, pulse & tongue reading, and direct energy scanning. This energetic health & wellness assessment enables the design of a healing program that may include energy balancing therapies such as acupuncture, therapeutic qigong, bodywork and herbal medicine, dietary guidance and lifestyle recommendations. Life Coaching and its Five Elements questionnaire can also be used to assist your overall healthcare program.
Consultation rates will vary with the time & complexity involved. Common consultations are 30 - 40 minutes / CHF 96. Treatments for acupuncture, bodywork, Qigong therapy, dietary therapy & herbal consultations are billed according to the combined modalities involved, usually between CHF 108 - 140 /session.
