Get a Head Start

To get a head start, print and fill out our Initial Paperwork.

Before Your Treatment

Your initial visit will take between an hour and half to two hours. If you would like, you may schedule a free 20 minute consultation prior to your initial visit to ask any questions you may have, or to see if Chinese Medicine is right for you.

  • Please show up 15 minutes before your appointment time to fill out paper work
  • Wear comfortable clothes that can easily slide up to your elbows or knees.
  • Eat something at least an hour before your treatment. Please do not show up on an empty stomach.
  • Bring a list of current medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements that you are taking
  • Please refrain from wearing scented oils, strong perfumes or colognes the day of your treatment.

After Your Treatment

Relax as much as possible for the rest of the day. Eat lightly, and avoid vigorous exercise and alcohol.

Give yourself at least 24 hours after the treatment before determining how your body responded to acupuncture. Sometimes right after treatment people feel exhausted or their pain has increases but when they wake up the next morning they feel better than they have in years.
