What to Expect
Preparing For Your Visit and What To Expect After Treatment
Preparing For Your Visit
Your initial visit will include a full patient intake and medical history as well as your first acupuncture treatment.
Please allow at least 1 Hour for the
first visit. Regular visits will be approximately 30 minutes- 1 Hour depending on your particular condition. *Please bring a list of current medications you are taking, including any prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, and
* Please bring any lab or medical reports relevant to your condition.
* Eat a light meal a few hours prior to your visit.
* Avoid alcohol on the day of your treatment
* Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Acupuncture points are located all over the body. Many of the acupuncture points that are commonly used
are located between the wrists and elbows and the ankles and knees. You will be more comfortable if your clothing can be easily rolled up to your
elbows and knees.
What To Expect After Treatment
Your relief may be immediate, delayed for a few hours, or even develop after one to three days. The relief may last for a few hours on the first visit and then last longer with each successive treatment, or relief may last from the first treatment until your next visit. Individual response to treatment varies.
Each session builds on the next as your body heals, this is why it's important to follow your treatment regimen the doctor prescribes.
