What information do I need to bring to my first consultation?
What you need to bring to your first consultation at Meridian Healing Centre will depend on what type of condition you require to be treated.
If you are coming to receive acupuncture for a muscular skeletal condition, bring along any information you have from any doctors or specialists you have seen. There is no need to bring the films of the scans, but definitely bring the reports which accompany the scans. This will allow Dr Wilson to better understand the condition and in turn he will then be able to custom tailor an acupuncture treatment.
If you are coming for a condition which is not muscular skeletal, you do not need to bring anything. If you have been diagnosed by a medical doctor it is preferable you are clear as to what exactly is your diagnosis.
Most importantly for acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine consultation is for you to be clear on how you feel and the state of your general health. Both acupuncture and Chinese medicine are forms of energetic healing. They are systems of medicine which use the signs and symptoms experienced by the patient to get an inference as what may be occurring at an energetic level. Given this, the focus is on which signs and symptoms are experienced and less on the diagnosis from medical science.
