WHAT TO EXPECT
The initial consultation will include full medical history taking and physical examination much like one would expect when visiting your general practitioner.
The physical examination will also entail observing your tongue and taking your pulse in the traditional Chinese medicine manner of palpation on 3 locations of the wrist.
The history taking may also include a detailed inquiry into diet and lifestyle and familial and personal factors such as taste, and seasonal preferences, not usually included in a routine medical history.
Dr Laverne Lindenberg is registered with the Allied Health Professionals Council of South Africa (AHPCSA) and the Board of Health Care Funders (BHF). This allows her to send you for additional radiological or laboratory examinations such as x-rays or blood tests should the diagnosis and treatment of your condition require this. This also means that you will be able to claim for her services from your medical aid.
Treatment will consist of one or a combination of the following: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Cupping (Ba Guan), Moxibustion, Tui Na (massage) and Gua Sha (scraping)
