The initial consultation will be expected to take an hour, with Dawn beginning the diagnosis and formulating a treatment course relevant to you. Each individual reacts differently to acupuncture treatment, but the positive results are cumulative. You will find your treatment to be a source of pleasure, not anxiety.
