How to prepare for your first treatment:
- Wear loose and comfortable clothing
- Refrain from drug and alcohol use before and after treatments as this can negatively affect treatment efficacy
- Eat something (can be a small snack) prior to coming in for treatment
- If having cosmetic acupuncture procedure completed, please refrain from wearing makeup (eye makeup is okay) and clean face with your favorite cleanser.
Upon arriving for your first visit, you will be asked to complete a medical history intake form. Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to appointment time to allow proper time to complete these forms. If preferred, you can download these forms directly from Patient Forms, complete at home, and bring to your first visit. Please be sure to choose the appropriate form for the type of treatment you will be receiving (e.g. fertility, weight loss, smoking cessation, general, etc.). All patients must fill out new patient intake form in addition to any other forms needed for specific condition. Treatment cannot occur without the completed forms so please remember to bring them to your first visit.
The initial visit usually lasts between 45-60 minutes depending on the condition. This initial evaluation includes a comprehensive medical history assessment and an acupuncture treatment.
Follow-up visits usually last between 30-45 minutes.
