Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment I will ask you to complete a comprehensive intake form. The acupuncture intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Oriental medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark. Remember, we are all electrical in nature.

After reviewing your intake form, we will discuss your condition, and I will examine your pulse and tongue, which are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points I choose will depend on your condition, but you can expect approximately 20 needles. Once the needles are gently inserted, I will leave you to lie comfortably for 15-20 minutes with needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time. If you haven't had acupuncture, and your apprehensive, I will let you test one needle first to let you see there's no need to be afraid, it's not like getting an injection. Needles are hair-thin and you'll wonder how something so tiny can do so much. Feel free to call me if you have questions or would like to discuss acupuncture before you schedule an appointment. I'm here to help!
