Your First Visit
For Your convenience, before arriving at the clinic you may print and fill out the Acupuncture Health History Form and/or the Massage Health History Form. These Health Forms are completely confidential and will never be disclosed to anyone unless required by law.
What To Expect
Your first appointment will begin with a consultation of your health history, a discussion about your current symptoms and health conditions, and the goals of your treatment. Initial acupuncture treatments include an assessment, diagnosis and treatment, and normally requires a 90-minute session.
Based on the health history consultation, the therapist will outline an initial treatment plan, and will explain what modalities will be performed during the session. Next, your therapist will leave the treatment room and close the door for your privacy, allowing you to undress to your comfort level. After undressing, you may lie down on the massage table and cover yourself with the top sheet.
During your treatment, most parts of your body will be covered with a draped top sheet and a blanket. Your private parts will be covered at all times. Only the body part being treated will be undraped to ensure a comfortable and secure patient experience.
At the end of your treatment, your therapist will leave the room and close the door for your privacy while you get dressed. When you are ready, they will return and discuss self-care techniques and dietary advice to help rebalance the body and boost energy.
After-care of the treatment is to drink water in order to rehydrate and flush away any toxins that may have been released during treatment. An Epsom salt bath is recommended for sore muscles post-treatment.
