Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment I will ask you to complete a comprehensive intake form online, prior to your arrival.  The acupuncture intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Chinese medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.

After reviewing your intake form, we will discuss your condition, and I will examine your pulse and tongue, which are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Chinese medicine. The acupuncture points I choose will depend on your condition, but you can expect as little as 4 to possibly 10 needles, depending on what is necessary for your condition.  Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during the treatment.
