A Consultation with Sally Ann Hutcheson
What happens?At the first appointment, I will take a full case history, asking you about your health as well as a much broader picture of who you are - your sleep patterns, dreams, fears, emotions, personality, lifestyle, eating preferences etc. I will then carry out a non-invasive muscle response test. You will remain fully clothed throughout. After the test I will make up the remedies for you, if I have them. Sometimes I will need to order certain remedies, and sometimes you will need to buy them from a health food shop or order them. If this is the case, I will give you full details of where to get them. I will give you clear instructions (both orally and in writing) of how and when to take the remedies, and an explanation of why I am giving you those particular remedies.
For Craniosacral Sessions, see separate page.
How long will the appointment take?The first appointment takes between 1 hour and 1½ hours. Subsequent appointments take anything up to 1 hour
What does it cost?Craniosacral charges are as follows:
A first appointment £75.
Subsequent appointments £60
Craniosacral charges for Babies and Children:
- Baby under 1 month - first craniosacral assessment - £25
- Baby under 3yrs - first craniosacral assessment - £45
- Baby (under 3yrs) subsequent appointments £30
- Children 3-16 yrs first appointment £50
- Children subsequent appointments £35
A first appointment £105
Subsequent appointments £72
There will usually be no extra charge for remedies, but occasionally there is a charge. The cost will depend on the amount and type required.
All 'follow-up' and interim telephone calls between appointments (see below) for current patients are free of charge. If a remedy is required there will be a charge for that.
How can I contact you if I need to between appointments?I believe it is very important to have access to your practitioner between appointments. Therefore I make myself available by telephone. If I do not answer the telephone, I ask you to leave a message and I will return your call as quickly as possible. This is usually within a few hours, nearly always the same day, but occasionally, if I am away for the day or it is my day off, it will be the next day. If I am away for longer than 1-2 days, you will be able to contact my locum. Telephone is my preferred method of communication in patient follow up care, as there are usually a series of questions I need to ask. How the dialogue develops then depends on your preceding answers. E-mail does not work satisfactorily in this situation.
