The process to determine your response to Acupuncture
The first treatment will involve a medical history assessment and Acupuncture treatment. Please bring a list of all medications and supplements you are currently taking. Please allow for two hours of time for your first appointment (medical history and Acupuncture combined). After your first treatment, a follow up Acupuncture session, typically lasting for 60-75 minutes.
After your first visit we will also give you homework to take home with you and bring back with you for your second visit (don’t worry we don’t grade you :). Your homework is very important as we want to rate your body’s response to the Acupuncture. We want you to start feeling better right away, and this is because Acupuncture builds on momentum.
The power of Acupuncture builds with momentum
When it comes to pain, we recommend three visits within a seven-ten day period to evaluate if Acupuncture is the best fit for your health and wellness goals. Additionally, after the second or third Acupuncture treatment, depending on the health concerns presented, Chinese herbal medicine may also be considered. We do not recommend introducing both Chinese herbal medicine and or Acupuncture during the first three sessions. This is because we want to know which therapy can best help you depending on your health goals. We generally recommend Acupuncture first, but there are always exceptions!
Chinese herbal medicine and Acupuncture can help many many people but it may also not be a fit for everyone. If we find by the third visit that you may need something different in order to best help you, we will do our best in order to refer you to other therapies.
