Frequently Asked Questions:
What happens during a consultation?
You will spend the majority of the session chatting with Kim about your health history, and going through any previous testing (please make sure you bring all copies of previous tests to your appointment). If you haven’t had any testing, Kim will advise what may need to be looked into. Kim will also ask a lot of questions in order to come up with a Chinese medicine diagnostic pattern. This is how Chinese medicine approaches the health of your body, including your reproductive system. There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions during the session.
Does my partner need to come along?
No, in fact it is often best to come alone so that the session can be focussed on your health specifically. Female partners are welcome to bring sperm test results to the consultation.
Will I receive treatment during the session?
If you would like acupuncture, it is included in the consultation fee and timeframe. Herbal and nutritional medicine may also be prescribed as needed.
