Your First Visit

Prior to your first acupuncture appointment, you will be asked to complete a comprehensive intake form and sign consent documents online via the patient portal.  You can access the patient portal here.  Contact the office for a registration link if you are unable to get one online.

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 Chinese 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.  Provide as much detail as you can when completing these forms.

At your first visit, we will discuss your health history and treatment plan goals prior to your acupuncture treatment.  Chinese medicine uses two diagnostic methods to evaluate your health condition - tongue and pulse daignosis.  These findings will be discussed with you. 

During your treatment, acupuncture points will be chosen to address your condition.  You can expect between 10-20 needles to be inserted where you will lie comfortably for approximately 30 minutes. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is common for patients to rest deeply during their treatment.

Things to remember the day of your acupuncture appointment:

  • Drink extra water before and after your visit.  Aim for at least 8 glasses per day.
  • Eat a small meal at least 2 hours prior to your visit.
  • Wear loose fitting clothing that can be pulled up to your elbow or knees.
  • If you have physical therapy, chiropractic or massage on the same day, schedule acupuncture after these treatments.
  • If you are coming to the clinic to stop smoking, please make sure your last cigarette is 24 hours prior to your appointment. 
  • For stop smoking, contact the office at least 2 weeks before your treatment so we can email you a list of suggestions that you can implement to help make it easier to quit.
