During Your Initial Consult
Your initial consult will last about 15 minutes. Please share your concerns. We will give you an assessment and answer any initial questions.
Your First Session
Your first acupuncture treatment will take approximately 60 minutes. During this time, we will fully assess your health, hear your concerns and field your questions, and allow you to experience a complete acupuncture treatment.
During Your Session
Acupuncture is relatively painless, but not without sensation. You will able to feel the “qi” or energy at certain insertion points. You may feel heaviness, numbness, tingling, pressure, or soreness at these points. These sensations are completely normal and should not keep you from being able to relax during your treatment.
After Your Session
Towards the end of your first or second treatment, you may be prescribed herbs and/or breathing exercises to complement your healing process while you are at home and work. Your full treatment plan will also be explained to you at that time. It is highly recommended that you follow these treatment plans to maximize your results.
