YOUR FIRST VISIT

  • Your first visit will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes during which time your health history and current health care concerns are reviewed.

  • You will experience a variety of diagnostic techniques including feeling your pulse.

  • You will then receive an acupuncture treatment based on your unique diagnosis.

  • Depending on the nature of your illness, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, and/or dietary therapy are recommended usually on the second or third visit. 

How many treatments will I need?

  • Acupuncture is most effective when you receive about 8-12 treatments. After that time period, you will know if the treatments are effective for you and your condition.

  • The number of treatments needed varies depending on your health condition. Chronic and complex illnesses may require more treatment, while acute problems generally respond faster. 

  • You may need to continue to receive weekly or bi-weekly treatment after that time for several months to receive the most benefit. Removing the deepest cause of your imbalance requires commitment and patience. 

  • Once you are feeling completely better, a monthly treatment can be helpful to maintain your health.

How should I prepare for my first treatment?

  • Dress comfortably.

  • Eat a light meal or snack, and drink water about an hour prior to treatment.
