You're about to embark on an amazing journey. Whatever the reason you have chosen acupuncture...Congratulations!

What should I know before my first treatment?
I strive to be available to patients and to provide meaningful care. In respect for this intention and in consideration of others who also need appointments, the following cancelation policy has been put in place: Cancelation Policy. Please familiarize yourself with this policy before your first visit.
For your first treatment, be sure to bring your filled out New Patient paperwork, wear loose, comfortable clothing and eat something at least one hour before. Your first treatment will last approximately 80 min, with all others lasting 60 min.
The first half of your treatment will be an interview process where we discuss the main reasons for your visit and review past and present health. I will then take your pulse and look at your tongue, two tools I use for diagnostic purposes. We will end the session with the acupuncture, where the needles are retained for around 25 minutes. You will be lying on a comfy massage table, listening to relaxing nature sounds (or in silence-you choose), and dim or no lighting. It's very relaxing and most fall asleep for a restorative power nap.
The benefits of acupuncture start immediately. Most feel very relaxed as they leave the office.
After your first treatment, you may experience an excellent night of sleep, higher energy, more focus, less stress and a reduction in pain.
I look forward to seeing you!
