Before Your Appointment

I am currently working reduced hours because of the Covid situation, and choose to do a lot of my consultations remotely, to reduce face- to- face time.

If you cannot make the appointment, please let me know. If less than 24 hours notice is given, then a charge may be made for lost appointment time.

  • Plan a restful day on the day of your appointment. Acupuncture can provoke certain symptoms which can persist for up to 48 hours after treatment. Do yourself a favour – relax and try to avoid alcohol, exercise, and rich foods for the rest of the day.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing. It may be necessary to undress in order to allow access to the areas needing treatment, such as the back or shoulders.
  • Treatment takes time to come into effect – you may not see immediate results. Acupuncture is best viewed as a holistic pathway to healing, not a quick fix.

It is recommended to have a minimum of 4–6 treatments at weekly or bi-weekly intervals in order to allow time for the body to respond.

If you have any particular questions or concerns about your treatment, please get in touch – jo@jojoy.co.uk 07577 547755
