your first visit

Treatments are approximately one and a half hours in length. A comprehensive medical history will be taken during your initial visit (please ensure you have filled the online portion of your intake and signed the various forms). At each visit, the practitioner will conduct a 15-20 minute intake, including a tongue and pulse diagnosis. Once the needles are placed into position, the patient will rest for 20-30 minutes. After completion of the treatment, a custom herbal formula is sometimes prepared or ordered to address and harmonize the condition.

We recommend that you do not arrive for your treatment on an empty stomach. Please eat a light snack or meal prior to your appointment. Also be sure to drink plenty of water before and after your treatment. A person suspected of being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol will be not be seen and a refund will not be given.

Your practitioner will determine the number and frequency of your visits following your treatment plan. Usually 6 to 8 visits. If you are unsure of when you should make your next follow up visit please let us know.

It is not uncommon to occasionally experience a bruise or soreness at the site of an acupuncture needle in the days following your treatment. For most people this should not be a cause for concern but do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.
