Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment I will ask you to complete a comprehensive intake form. 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, as well as do very gentle/subtle osteopathic palpation/sensing that helps me decide where to do acupuncture.  The acupuncture points I select will depend on your condition, but you can expect 1-3, but usually not more than 6 needles.  Once the needles are inserted, I will monitor your body's response to the acupuncture and usually do additional treatment modalities. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time. 

This would be a good time to mention that if you do not want acupuncture to be a part of your treatment, that's OK!  The other things I have to offer are very effective in treating most health issues, injuries, and/or chronic pain.
