New Patient Info
During your first visit I will conduct an in-depth interview
and exam. Questions will be asked about your primary
complaint/s as well as a complete health history. This will
build a complete picture and put your condition into a holistic
If I feel that Acupuncture will be effective for you, a
customized treatment will be formulated. Your first visit will
take about 75 minutes, with subsequent visits lasting 45-60
During your treatment, you will lay either face up or face
down, in a comfortable position, on a massage table. The
needles are generally painless and most people only feel a
tapping sensation. Once the needles are in and you are
comfortable, you will relax in the treatment room for about 20
minutes. After this time I remove the needles. I only use
sterile disposable needles.
After the acupuncture treatment is over, I may recommend
Chinese Herbs if I think they would be helpful for your
situation. Most people find acupuncture completely painless and
very relaxing. Some patients fall asleep during a treatment.
Wear comfortable clothing, often if patients wear clothing
that can be pulled up to the knees and past the elbows, they
often don't need to change clothes for the treatment.
Please be sure to eat a meal or a snack in the 3-4 hours
prior to a treatment.
