Before your visit:

Please fill out our New Patient Intake Form. The more thorough you can be, the more accurate our diagnosis and the better your overall outcome.

You will remain fully clothed during your visit but be sure to wear comfortable clothing that can get above your knees and elbows.

Be sure to eat something within two hours of your visit.

If possible, minimize your caffeine intake prior to your appointment. Studies have shown that caffeine may impair the effects of acupuncture in the body.

During your visit:

Your healing starts from the minute you set foot in our door. It is a tranquil space where you can leave the rest of your day behind you and just let go. You will feel cared for and heard. We will sit and thoroughly discuss your current health concerns and past health history. Plan on 1.5 hours for your first visit.

On subsequent visits we will discuss your progress since your last visit for about 10-15 minutes.

You will then receive a gentle acupuncture treatment in a tranquil environment which will last from 25-45 minutes depending on what your body needs at that visit.
If you have more questions about acupuncture, herbal prescriptions or how your treatment will feel, contact us.

After your first treatment we will develop your overall treatment plan including an estimate of how many treatments you will need and determine your individual path to healing including any other suggestions that would be beneficial to your health.

After your visit:

Patients often feel very relaxed and some feel energized.

Don’t shower for two hours after the treatment.

Keep yourself well hydrated.
