An initial acupuncture session consists of a health history intake, diagnosis, treatment plan and customized acupuncture treatment. Your treatment plan will address your symptoms as well as the root cause of your health concerns.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions and will be given feedback and recommendations on how to make the most out of your treatments. Your initial visit will last 75-90 minutes and follow-up appointments are 60 minutes.
During each acupuncture treatment session, you may receive additional therapies, which include tui na (medical massage), cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, herbal prescription, nutrition and/or lifestyle recommendations. I will decide what treatments are best for you once I have taken a detailed history and gained an understanding of your needs.

Remember to bring a list of any current medications and/or supplements you are taking, including dosage and frequency.
You are welcome to fill out patient forms beforehand to save time during your visit.
