Prior to your first Acupuncture treatment, there is some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. These forms take about 30 minutes to complete thoroughly, so please feel free to print and fill them out ahead of time and bring them to your first appointment. If you are unable to do so, kindly plan to come in 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. 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.
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the Acupuncturist will ask you various questions related to your condition and past medical history. Next, a few specialized Oriental Medicine tests will be performed to determine which energetic pathways to stimulate.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will be provided with their first Acupuncture treatment during the same visit.
At the closing of your first treatment, we will schedule a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, new patients are seen within one day to one week later, and are provided with a complete review of findings on that follow-up visit.
