It is best to not arrive hungry, or be too exhausted. It is common for your practitioner to look at your tongue each session too, so it would be most accurate to not brush it a day or so before your session. The coat on it (or lack there of) is telling to us to better diagnose what is going on internally, and where.
If you are a new patient to New Freedom Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, please download our Patient Forms and bring them filled out to your initial consultation. These forms take about 30 minutes to complete thoroughly. If you have any questions regarding the forms, please make note of it and be sure to discuss it with your practitioner at your initial consultation.
