Tips For Your First Visit:
FIRST APPOINTMENT: If you have not completed your paperwork online, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete paperwork.
RIGHT ON TIME: Be on time for your appointment so you can relax and enjoy your treatment. You’re welcome to arrive early and enjoy a cup of herbal or green tea in the waiting room.
COMFORTABLE CLOTHING: Wear loose-fitting clothes that can be easily rolled up above your knees and elbows. Depending on your treatment you may need to expose your abdomen, so avoid one-piece suits or dresses.
EAT: Eat a light meal within a few hours prior to arriving for your appointment. Receiving treatment on an empty stomach may increase the risk of nausea or dizziness. Also, avoid overeating immediately before your treatment.
DRINK: Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated before and after your treatment.
RELAX: Avoid strenuous activity immediately prior to or following a treatment. Physical strain before or after acupuncture can be especially hard on the body.
QUESTIONS: During your intake, you will be asked many questions, some related specifically to your complaint and others that may seem unrelated. Chinese Medicine looks at the person in a holistic manner to determine the cause of a condition or disease. In this way, we treat the source of the problem, not just the symptom.
