Getting Started with Acupuncture
Each appointment is focused on you. I work to create an experience that is built on Partnership, Empowerment and Education.
The First Visit
The initial visit usually lasts about 90 minutes. It includes a thorough medical and personal history. We’ll discuss your main complaints and a more general review of the functioning of your body’s systems.
We assess the state of your Qi (pronounced "chee") and work to determine the underlying cause of the condition. Then a personalized treatment plan is created.
Preparing for Your First Treatment
There are a few simple things that you can do to ensure that you get the most out of your treatment:
Avoid wearing makeup or fragrances
Eat lightly before your treatment
Get plenty of rest before and after the treatment
Before or after your treatment avoid:
Vigorous physical activity
After your treatment, drink plenty of water.
