The first treatment will be longer than others - plan for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Wear loose clothing. Many points that are useful in treatment will require that you remove clothing, and loose clothing can minimize this.
While it is not good to show up to an appointment hungry, please don’t eat a large meal just before an appointment.
Chronic conditions usually take more treatment than acute conditions.
Initially appointments should be close together - such as 1-3 times a week, but as treatment progresses you will be able to space them further and further appart.
If any other health concerns come up please let me know.
What treatment is like
The first appointment will involve a detailed medical history and acupuncture treatment.
Follow up appointments will include a less detailed session of questions.
Other treatments may include: Moxa (a gentle warming therapy), electrical stimulation, infrared heat therapy, some massage and an herbal presciption.
While not necessarily sensation free (most patients, especially after a few appointments, experience a “Qi“ sensation), patients find treatments comfortable if not relaxing. Many patients fall asleep during treatment.
