Will I require any expensive machines or devices to use your method?

Not at all. The only devices we recommend are tools for diagnostic purposes only, and are optional to the methodology.
They are used to confirm findings and allow the diagnostic process to be conducted more quickly. Many clients will take more notice of and be more confident what interventions and treatments you are prescribing when they can see the results of the skin measurements for themselves.
