From your first visit to my practice, I will encourage feelings of ease, safety, and a sense of belonging that will continue on to any subsequent visit. Your comfort is my top priority!
After reviewing your health questionnaire, we will discuss your reasons for coming for acupuncture, and your expectations.
As part of my hands-on approach, I will palpate different muscles, acupuncture points, gently feel your abdomen (Hara), check your pulses, and look at your tongue.
Your body will, in a sense, communicate to me what is out of harmony, and I translate these findings into a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis. From this I can create an acupuncture treatment that is specifically designed for you!
Initial Acupuncture visits are generally one hour. Follow up treatments can be half an hour to an hour, depending on your needs.
Clean Needle Technique protocol is followed, and the acupuncture needles are pre-packaged, sterile, and single use. This is done following guidelines by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
