Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment I will discuss with you in further detail your completed intake form. I will also address any questions or concerns that you may have.  The acupuncture intake 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 intake form, 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, but you can expect approximately 10 needles. Once the needles are inserted, I will leave you to lie comfortably for 20-30 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.

Since acupuncture points are located all over the body it is essential to wear loose fitting clothes or bring a change of clothes. In the event that this is not possible a gown can be provided or a modest draping can be used.

Prior to your scheduled initial visit please complete the new patient intake form provided below.  If you do not have access to a printer please arrive to your appointment 10 minutes early to complete the required paperwork.
