What to expect

A comprehensive review of your health history will be conducted to learn more about how your symptoms relate.  Every detail sheds light on the root cause of your condition. Other diagnostic tools include looking at the tongue, taking the pulse, and palpating the abdomen and limbs. You will then experience your first treatment.   If herbs are desired, a tea will be created.

The number of treatments required to resolve a condition depends upon the nature of the condition as well as your lifestyle and habits. Acute conditions may be relieved in as few as 1 to 4 treatments. Chronic conditions require more regular treatment. The effects of acupuncture are cumulative. Ideally, you would have your follow up treatment before the symptoms return to the same level or intensity as before you started.

How to prepare for your appointment

An office visit is generally 60 minutes in length (90 minutes for the initial visit).  If you are late for an appointment your treatment will be modified to fit into the remaining time. If you are more then 15 minutes late for an appointment, please call.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing or bring a pair of shorts and t-shirt to change in to. Have a light snack before the appointment so that you do not receive the treatment on an empty stomach. Due to other patients' sensitivities, please refrain from applying any strong perfume/cologne prior to your visit.


Payment is due at the time of the visit.  There will be a $15 fee for any returned checks. Flexible spending account cards as well as VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards are accepted.
