Receiving acupuncture treatment can be a unique and powerful healing experience. The first appointment is typically a two-hour consultation. During this visit we will speak at length about your health concerns and address any questions you may have about Chinese Medicine the healing process. We will also discuss your health and personal histories in detail, followed by a physical examination. The primary objective of the first appointment is to assess the underlying conditions that have led to your current concerns. Following the initial consultation, ideally you will be seen in weekly one-hour sessions for 6-8 visits. During this time, significant signs of progress will likely appear. As patients experience improvement in their condition and enjoy a greater sense of ease in life, treatments may be extended to every other week, every three weeks, monthly and eventually seasonally. Strict adherence to patient confidentiality is maintained at all times.
