call for directions
Our first visit is a time for you to ask any questions you might have about acupuncture or my practice. I will spend 30 to 45 minutes asking questions about your medical history, your symptoms, your goals and anything relevant to understanding how to best support you. You will then lay fully clothed on a massage table. I will take your pulses (Chinese diagnostics) and treat you with the insertion of tiny sterilized stainless steel acupuncture needles. You can then rest and afterwards ask any questions you might have about the treatment. Allow about an hour and a half for the first visit and one hour for subsequent visits. Frequency of treatments depends on your unique experience and goals.
This is a time for your body, mind and spirit to integrate new information. It is best to rest if possible, hydrate and act in moderation. Ideally you can find time, not to focus on symptoms , but to quietly listen to your inner voice.
