Your First Visit
Illness, dysfunction and pain are interrelated with many aspects of the body, mind and lifestyle. As an East Asian Medicine practitioner, I feel it’s important to address all facets of the person to get to the root cause and achieve the best treatment outcome. During your first appointment we will sit down together and conduct a comprehensive health history evaluation and formulate a treatment plan for your health conditions. This will include an exam of your tongue and pulse and diagnostic information you provide. I will then administer your treatment and allow you to rest comfortably on the table…feel free to fall asleep. Your initial exam and treatment lasts 75 minutes and follow up treatments are 45-60 minutes.
For Best Results
While undergoing acupuncture treatment, you will benefit most by refraining from excessive use of caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol and other drugs so that you can optimize your body’s ability to regain balance. Please schedule your activities so that you come to your appointment neither too full or too hungry, and avoid strenuous exercise right before and afterwards. Please have a light meal or snack and drink some water.
You will remain clothed during treatment so please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. Most acupuncture points used are located on the lower arms and legs, hands and feet, so clothing is usually rolled up to access the points. If an article of clothing needs to be removed, sheets and blankets are provided to keep you warm and preserve your modesty. For the comfort of others, please avoid the use of fragrances during your treatments.
After your treatment, take good care of yourself and allow your body and mind to assimilate the treatment. If possible, wait at least an hour to eat a full meal.
It is helpful if you keep track of any changes or reactions you are experiencing with your treatments. Examples are a change in energy level, sleep, feeling cooler or warmer, decrease in pain level or change in location of pain, and changes in mental/emotional states.
Please feel free to ask questions at anytime.
