What can I expect on my first visit?

Your initial visit should last about 1.5-2 hours with the first hour spent going over your health/personal history, review of your present condition and any questions or concerns you might have. It is conducted in complete confidentiality. It is recommended that you arrive to your first appointment at least 15 minutes early so you have the opportunity to sit and relax and fill out paperwork if it has not already been completed. We have a beautiful waiting room with drinks and magazines to make you comfortable. The best thing to do is to make sure you have eaten within 2-4 hours prior to your treatment. Please do not come for treatment on an empty stomach or drink any alcohol prior to treatment. In addition to acupuncture needling, it is possible that other modalities such as cupping or electrical stimulation may be used during your treatment. All modalities will be fully explained to you and are incorporated into your treatment at no additional cost. A complete treatment plan and expected outcomes will be explained on the first visit.

Subsequent sessions are between 45 to 60 minutes long and start with a brief interview where you have the chance to provide feedback on your last treatment. This is very important, as your subjective feedback will often determine the direction of future treatments. Most patients are in a state of deep relaxation after a treatment but some may feel tired, especially after the first few appointments. Plan your activities so that after each treatment (especially the first few) you can relax and thus allow yourself to gain maximum benefit.
