The first consultation can last up to 1 hour with subsequent sessions lasting up to 45 minutes. The purpose of the initial consultation is to gather relevant information such as medical history, medications being taken, symptoms of conditions, lifestyle and diet, etc. As part of the consultation, Maria will look at your tongue and feel your pulses, helping form part of her diagnosis. She then formulates an individualised treatment plan based on her finding. At the end of the consultation, you will receive your first treatment.
