Thanks!

Thanks for making your deposit for your first appointment consultation. I look forward to meeting you!

Your deposit assures your appointment. It covers one hour of our time together, but please do realise that first appointments usually take more than one hour. I charge my time at £100 per hour for first appointments.

So if we take less than one hour, you will receive a refund. But usually first appointments take more than an hour so there will be an additional sum to pay. 

What that means is that if it takes one hour and 30 minutes, you will owe me an additional £50. If it takes one hour and 45 minutes, you will owe me an additional £75. Two hours would be £200 altogether, which, less the £100 you've paid today, means an extra £100 is due.

The first appointment for cosmetic acupuncture is usually one hour long so your payment covers this.

Cancelling your appointment?

Please realise that I require 48 hours notice if you have to cancel, otherwise your deposit is usually non-refundable. 

Why? Because I shall be unable to fill the time and must twiddle my thumbs, when someone else who wanted your space couldn't take it because insufficient notice was given, so had to arrange their appointment possibly several weeks later.

Worth It!

I hope to make your time with me well worth while. I shall give you ample time to describe your problems and then shall ask questions and, if necessary and appropriate, do a physical examination.

If you are seeing me for acupuncture/Chinese medicine, at some point I shall explain

  • what I think is happening in terms of Chinese medicine and 
  • what I can do, as well as 
  • make a preliminary prognosis of the number of treatments you may expect, and how often.
  • I may be able to suggest pages on this site that would help you understand your condition better

Your first acupuncture treatment

If, after discussion, there is enough time, it is appropriate and you would like it, we can start treatment then and there.

However, first I shall have to ask you to sign some permission forms.

I shall also give you forms explaining what you may expect during and after acupuncture treatment.

We then book your next appointment (£50 - for acupuncture). You can do this with me or on-line at www.brief.me.uk.

Herbs

After an acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine consultation, if you need herbs I aim to despatch your prescription within two days.

Sometimes the herbs must be ordered from the supplier, in which case this takes longer.

I shall give you a rough estimate of the cost of the herbs when I see you. Sometimes the prescription is in tablet form and comes in tubs.

Homoeopathic medicine (or 'remedy')

After a homoeopathic consultation, I usually aim to despatch your homoeopathic remedy(ies) within two days.

Sometimes they must be ordered from the pharmacist, in which case this takes longer.

By the way, I do not usually mix homoeopathy and Chinese medicine/herbs/acupuncture.

So, for example, you would receive either homoeopathic treatment OR acupuncture. The consultations are very different. Nor would I usually mix homoeopathic remedies with herbs.

Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Books

Please note! The Kindle editions are less easy to read! Although the paper editions cost more, they are much easier to read and to refer back and forth to the contents and index. But ... there is no paper edition of Yang Deficiency as yet.

Here are some of the books Jonathan has written:

Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress

Yin Deficiency - Burnout and Exhaustion

Yang Deficiency - Get Your Fire Burning Again!

Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine



3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!

By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
