Your First Visit
Please be sure to eat a snack before your treatment. You should be neither hungry nor full. Please allow time to rest after your treatment, or at the least, avoid high impact activities. If possible, wear or bring loose-fitting clothes that can be rolled up to your elbows and knees. If you are nervous about needles or know that you are sensitive, please let me know. Acupuncture needles are sterile, one-time use and very thin, and I use a gentle touch to maintain a pleasant, relaxing experience.
An initial visit is 75-85 minutes long, and a return visit is typically 55 minutes in length. I will ask you a series of questions, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions as well. We will discuss diet, exercise and lifestyle recommendations to increase the effectiveness of your treatment. I will look at your tongue and feel your pulse, two important diagnostic tools in Chinese Medicine. After your intake, we will decide which of the following will be used in your treatment: cupping, tui na (Chinese massage), gua sha and/or an herbal prescription. The needles will be retained for about 20 minutes.
