The Student Clinic - What to Consider

 

  • Please note our Student Clinic is on the 2nd floor. There is no passenger lift in our building.

  • This is a multi-bedded clinic, where cubicles are separated by a curtain. 

  • Please note that we are unable to offer any separate treatment spaces.

  • Our Student Practitioners frequently incorporate moxa into their treatments.  If you do not wish to have moxa as part of your treatment, please let your Student Practitioner know.

  • Please remember that, although you may choose to not have moxa as part of your treatment, Patients in adjacent curtained cubicles will be having moxa treatments, so there will always be moxa in the air. 

  • If you feel that you will not be comfortable in a room where moxa is in the air, then you may wish to reconsider whether a multi-bedded open Clinic is the right setting for you.

  • Your Student Practitioner may be male or female. The fully qualified Supervisor, who may be male or female, might also come into your cubicle. There may be one or two further Students on Clinical Observation training days, and these also may be male or female*.

  • New Patient appointments will take approximately 90-145 minutes.

  • Follow-up appointments will take approximately 60-70 minutes.

  • You will be emailed forms in advance of your appointment. Please familiarise yourself with the information required in the forms, and bring the information with you to your first appointment.

  • Acupuncture requires a Patient to remove or loosen various items of clothing, but your modesty will be preserved at all times.

  • We do not provide towels to cover Patients during treatments. If you feel you prefer to use a towel/shawl/pashmina during your treatment, please do bring your own towel/shawl/pashmina with you to your appointment.

*Please note: We are not able to guarantee a male or a female Student Practitioner and/or a male or a female Supervisor. All Patients must book their appointments on this basis, and agree that they accept this information.

          Tui Na Clinic        

Our Tui Na teaching clinic is a low cost multi-bed clinic. You will be treated by our Tui Na students in a highly supervised clinical setting, to ensure you receive the appropriate treatment tailored to your specific needs.

Tui Na is becoming increasingly popular in the West, as it brings many of the benefits of Acupuncture by Acupressure, using hands and massage tools, rather than Acupuncture, which uses needles. Tui Na also has the added element of touch.

  • ·Tui Na massage is typically performed through the clothing, and you are not required to get undressed.

  • In addition to massage techniques, your Student Practitioner may suggest that auxiliary techniques such as cupping (local suction on a certain section of skin) or Gua Sha (where the skin is firmly rubbed through oil) would be of benefit to you.
