The first 30 minutes are spent understanding your health history, assessing your present condition(s), and setting goals for your care. We may discuss nutrition, lifestyle, stress, exercise, sleep, and previous lab work. This is followed by treatment tailored to your needs and using appropriate modalities from Japanese and Chinese traditions. Depending on your needs, you may be prescribed herbs or supplements.
Please wear comfortable clothing or bring shorts or loose pants to change into and eat a light snack before treatment. It is best not to be hungry or full. If you have recent lab work, X-rays, etc please bring copies with you so I can include them in your file.
Follow Up Visit
For any patient who has already had an initial visit. After catching up on changes to your health, habits, and goals, you will receive individualized treatment using appropriate modalities from Japanese and Chinese traditions. Depending on your needs, you may be prescribed herbs or supplements. If you have recent lab work, X-rays, etc please bring copies with you so I can include them in your file.
Immune Boost/ Maintain Health
Maintenance sessions use a standard protocol for health maintenance and cold prevention and maximize time to rest during treatment. Note that this session is not individually tailored to symptoms and health goals.
For new patients, a paperwork fee of $15 will be added to create your chart and an additional 15 minutes is included for consultation after treatment to discuss any questions you may have about how acupuncture and herbal medicine can serve your specific needs.
If you need a tailored treatment for a specific health concern, please book a regular new patient or follow up appointment.
