What to expect:

New patients can expect to be at the office about 1.5-2 hours. Follow up treatments are 45 minutes-1 hour. The time you spend at the office depends on several things, including the amount of time needed for us to discuss your health concerns and any additional modalities (such as cupping, gua sha, or therapeutic massage) which may be performed.

Generally, followup treatments consists of 10-15 minutes of discussion time, followed by traditional diagnostic methods of tongue and pulse evaluation. At this point I will perform the acupuncture treatment, in which I insert 10-20 sterile, single-use stainless steel acupuncture needles. You will be left to relax (with a wonderful lavender eye mask if you'd like) for approximately 30 minutes while the needles do their job! Patients report feeling very relaxed during this time, and many actually fall asleep. This calm, relaxed feeling usually lasts several hours to several days after the session.

Pre-Acupuncture Recommendations: Please arrive for your session well hydrated and having had a light meal a few hours prior. I recommend wearing loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.

Post-Acupuncture Recommendations: I recommend resting as much as possible, drinking plenty of water, and refraining from vigorous exercise or alcohol consumption following your treatment. Your body needs time and energy to heal, so this is the best way for acupuncture to have maximum effect.
