How long will I need to be treated?
‘It’s as long as a piece of string’ is what one of my teacher always said, meaning that we are all individual and so have different needs and outcomes making it difficult to know exactly how long a treatment will need to last. For acute conditions like viral infections, or surgery recovery it may take a week or two. For a more complex or chronic condition the treatment may take a few months, adjusting and changing as you heal. There are lots of ways we can work together and find a way that best fits your lifestyle and finances to bring you to a new state of wellbeing.
