Your First Visit
How should you prepare for an acupuncture treatment or what should you do afterward? I created a short list of 'DO's and DON'Ts to help you maximize the benefits of your treatment. Read more to find out what to expect on your first visit.
Patients can save time during their first visit by downloading and completing the health history form in advance. The information requested is extremely valuable to provide new patients with the best possible care.
Follow-up sessions consist of a short interview to determine how your health is progressing and then a full treatment of acupuncture with adjunctive therapies, if necessary. These updates help me determine changes in your health and provide the necessary information that allow me to alter treatments accordingly.
Follow-up visits are scheduled through a program of 4 to 10 sessions. The frequency and duration of these initial sessions will depend on individual needs and responses to treatment. Your progress is re-evaluated at every session and as symptoms improve I lengthen the time between visits transitioning to a maintenance program. It is my goal to quickly get patients transitioned to a maintenance program that will support continued health and prevent future symptoms or sickness.
All appointments must be made in advance. To avoid cancellation fees, please give at least 24 hours notice to your scheduled appointment.
