WHAT TO EXPECT & HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR FIRST ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT
Congratulations on taking the next step towards your optimum health and well being!
The initial treatment is 90 minutes, during which I will obtain a full health history and history of your present ailment, palpate your radial pulse, on the inside of your wrist, and look at your tongue. The tongue and pulse are two of the main diagnostic tools used in Chinese medicine. They reflect the condition of the organs, qi, and blood. Once I have gathered the information I need to properly diagnose according to Chinese medicine, I will treat you accordingly with acupuncture, and may prescribe an herbal formula.
- Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment to fill out new patient paperwork.
- Wear comfortable clothing that allows access to the forearms and lower legs.
- If you are coming for a facial rejuvenation treatment, please come with a clean face, i.e. no foundation-like makeup.
