What to expect

Treatment Structure 

In order to build a solid foundation, we advise that the first four treatments are committed to on a weekly or fortnightly basis.  Following on from this, we should expect the gaps between treatments to extend until they reach the end goal of five sessions per year. 

Individual Sessions 

During the initial session you will discuss your main complaint with Georgie or Grace and what you would like to achieve from treatment.  This will include a general overview of your health and lifestyle so we can decide what best course of action to undertake. Following this, we will carry out a brief physical examination before beginning treatment. All subsequent sessions are tailored entirely to you as a unique individual and your response to the previous treatment. 

Before Treatment 

We require natural light for diagnosis so all initial consultations (2hours) must be booked in the day time. We offer 5pm slots on Tuesday and Wednesday. Follow up treatments can be arranged at a later time with 8pm our latest slot on Tuesday and Wednesday.  

You don’t need to prepare anything before treatment except we ask that you come wearing no make-up or perfume. Otherwise, enjoy the experience and ideally don’t go too crazy with alcohol straight afterwards (a couple of glasses is fine). 


We abide by a strict and professional Code of Ethics, which ensures the confidentiality of each of your sessions. Nothing you say leaves the four walls of the treatment room. The only exception we will make is when we consider you to be a serious risk of harm to yourself or others. 

Cancellation Policy

You can cancel your appointment up to 24 hours before. Just follow the link in the confirmation email to choose a new slot, if you need to cancel completely please get in touch through info@theelementsproject.com. If you fail to do so outside the 24 hour period or fail to turn up to your appointment you will be charged the full appointment fee.

Every time I come I feel better and better; my sleep has improved & stress levels way lower. It’s been a real game changer for me! I can’t recommend Five Element acupuncture enough.
