Your Initial Visit


Please wear, or bring, comfortable, loose-fitting clothes to your appointment. Also, please avoid arriving with an empty stomach.


Your first exam will include a thorough intake in order for your practitioner to identify and evaluate your chief symptoms within the context of your medical history, environmental factors and lifestyle. Your acupuncturist might also check your pulse, examine your tongue, and palpate your abdomen as part of a physical exam. Feel free to ask questions at any stage of this process. Most patients move into a deep state of relaxation during the treatment as the body harmonizes.


Your acupuncturist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that works with your schedule and budget. Try to leave yourself some time after the treatment to relax, and be sure to drink plenty of water. Some patients notice immediate effects while others see changes over the course of a few days. It can be helpful if you pay attention so that you can report back to your practitioner during the following visit.
