What can I expect from my appointment?

Your first appointment begins in a comfortable, private treatment room with a thorough intake of your health history and health concerns. Your health and personal information is completely confidential and protected.  There will be careful palpation and examination of affected areas.  I will also examine your tongue and wrist pulse, an important diagnostic technique in assessing your overall constitution and current state of health.

After your acupuncture session, we will discuss a treatment plan that is appropriate for your condition going forward.  I encourage you to feel comfortable in communicating with me at every stage.  Please allow 1.5 hours for your first appointment, and one hour for follow up appointments.  You may choose to dress comfortably, or an appropriate gown or drape will be provided.
