Do i need to see my doctor first?
You do not need to see your doctor first if you are paying for your own treatment. However, some insurance companies require you to see your doctor first.
How many treatments will I need?
An initial assessment will result in the determination of the problem and its severity, together with an estimate of the number and frequency of treatments required to effect a cure. We aim however to keep treatments to a minimum.
