What to expect on your first visit:


Each new patient appointment will have a hour scheduled. This is to ensure that you will have enough time for treatment after the consultation. (The treatment is not required after the consultation but recommended.) The consultation on average is about 30 minutes. If you decide to get acupuncture treatment after the consultation you can expect an additional 30 minutes. 


What to wear:
 

Please wear loose fit clothing if possible. Also, bring a list of questions and name of daily medications/supplements/vitamins. 


What size are the needles used during acupuncture?

The needles are about the width of a piece of hair and very smooth. Most people can feel them lightly but the treatment is so relaxing that 80% of patients fall asleep during the treatment.


Where are the herbs from? Are they safe?

The herbs are grown in China and then go through the FDA when they come into the US. Most herbs have no interaction with your medications but make sure to ask during the consultation.
