What to expect on your first visit?

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

– Lao-tzu

 

Initial visits generally last from 30 to 90 minutes. Your acupuncturist will take a detailed health history, perform a physical exam, and provide you with your unique treatment plan. 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.

 

Your treatment plan

 

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

 

Getting the most out of treatment

 

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

  • Please show up on time

  • Do eat something, but don’t eat a large meal before your visit

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothes

  • Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns with your acupuncturist

  • Refrain from over exertion, 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
