WHAT TO EXPECT

    If you have not already completed your paperwork ahead of time, please arrive 20 minutes early for your first appointment. All new patient forms can be found here. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be rolled up to the knees and elbows. Also, make sure you have eaten a small meal before your Acupuncture treatment. Having treatment on an empty stomach can lead to dizziness and nausea.  It is also not recommended to eat heavy, greasy foods before or after your treatment.  Make sure to drink plenty of water before and after your treatment as well.  Please allow 60-90 minutes for your first visit.  This allows time for a health consultation and a full Acupuncture treatment.  Your first visit takes longer than follow-up visits because we want to take the time to get to know you as an individual, your goals, and how we can individualize the treatment plan to best suit you and your health concerns.  We will feel your pulse and examine your tongue; two methods used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to confirm your diagnosis.  After the consultation, you will receive your first treatment.   Needles are typically retained for 20-30 minutes.
