We have a brief discussion with you about your general health and current symptoms. Then there is a hands-on assessment of the painful area.

You may be asked to remove some clothing during the check. If this is a problem please say. We then discuss how any imbalances may relate to your health and symptoms. The likely benefits of treatment are explained, along with a brief explanation of the treatment.
