Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment I will ask you for your completed new patient paperwork that you can download here or please arrive 15 minutes early to fill the paperwork out in the office.  The consent form is acknowledging your consent for treatment and the patient health history form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Oriental medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.

After reviewing your patient health history, we will discuss your condition, and I will examine your pulse and tongue, which are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points I choose will depend on your condition and comfort level.  Once the needles are inserted, I will leave you to lie comfortably for 30-40 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.
