Follow-up sessions last about one hour. They will 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 us determine changes in your health and provide the necessary information that allow us to alter treatments accordingly.
Follow-up visits are scheduled, for most patients, 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 we lengthen the time between visits transitioning to a maintenance program. Our goal is to get our patients transitioned to a maintenance program that will support continued health and prevent future symptoms or sickness.
We encourage you to make your appointment for therapy in advance. We will not charge for services that are cancelled at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
