Your first appointment will involve a comprehensive individualized assessment focused on your primary health concern as well as an initial acupuncture treatment and will be approximately 60-75 minutes in duration. Please bring a complete list of your medications and allergies with you to this initial appointment. During your initial visit, a treatment plan will be established for you which will include the recommended number of treatments needed to achieve your health and wellness goals. Chronic conditions typically require a longer course of treatment than acute conditions, and the number of treatments needed varies according to the individual. Follow-up appointments include reassessment and an acupuncture treatment and are approximately 45 minutes in duration. Please be sure to eat a light meal or snack prior to all appointments and avoid drinking alcohol or using drugs that have not been prescribed or recommended by a licensed health care provider. Loose-fitting clothing is preferred, or you may opt to bring a change of clothing with you.
