Treatment Session

On your first visit I will discuss the primary reason for your visit, I will also discuss your medical history and get as clear and precise a picture of your health as possible. Then I will diagnose the primary imbalance and form a comprehensive treatment plan for you.

You will be given a treatment on your first visit, as I like to help people progress as quickly as possible. Your first treatment session will last about 90 minutes, while you should allow 60 minutes for all follow up treatments. You will also receive advice regarding any lifestyle changes which I feel will help you make a complete recovery.

Treatment Inforrmation

Initial visits generally last up to 90 minutes. Your acupuncturist will take a detailed health history, perform a physical exam, and provide you with your unique treatment plan, including your first treatment.

During your first exam, your acupuncturist will spend time getting to know you and your health concerns. You may be asked a wide range of questions about your symptoms, eating, exercise, sleep habits, emotional states and anything that may offer insight into your health.

Your practitioner will also employ diagnostic tools that are unique to acupuncture and TCM such as tongue and pulse diagnosis.

Once your acupuncturist has gathered enough information, you’ll receive a comprehensive diagnosis and a treatment plan that will explain:

Your underlying imbalances

Your time line of care

What types of treatment you will receive

For the best treatment results, keep a few things in mind:

Please arrive on time

Don’t eat a large meal or consume alcohol before your visit

Wear loose, comfortable clothing

Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns with your acupuncturist

Refrain from overexertion, drugs or alcohol for at least six hours after treatment

Follow your treatment plan between visits

Keep all of your appointments, as each visit builds upon the previous ones

To treat any Qi imbalances, fine, sterile needles will be inserted at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways. Your acupuncturist will concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs, based on your unique issues and symptoms.

Your acupuncturist may include other related therapies in your treatment plan, such as cupping, and Tui Na (physical therapy) where appropriate.

Your actions are a key component of your treatment plan. Focusing on your health and committing to a healthy lifestyle are the best steps you can take for your well-being. Together, you and your acupuncturist can heal your imbalances and help you achieve harmony and balance.

Even after your symptoms are resolved, acupuncture can assist you in maintaining your health, and possibly prevent future imbalances. The more you incorporate acupuncture and TCM into your life, the more you’ll learn to nurture your body, mind and spirit.
