Your body knows what to do; acupuncture helps it remember.
What happens on my first visit?
An in-depth conversation will inform my diagnostics. We will discuss your health history, lifestyle, other therapies and care you currently receiving. Our conversation will cover, quality of life, impediments, and how I can help. I am happy to answer your questions and explain how seemingly unrelated symptoms may tie together.
I Learn More
Chinese Medicine Diagnostic methods, which include looking at your tongue and taking your pulse from various points on your wrists, help to identify and clarify the big picture. These diagnostic methods are an integral part of Chinese medicine that help identify the root causes of your concerns.
I Provide Care
This is where you get to lie down and relax on a temperature-controlled massage table. Once you are comfortable, I will insert fine needles that are sterile, single use and about the diameter of a hair, at specific points throughout the body. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s healing response to restore physiologic function.
We Create a Plan
We will discuss and create a treatment plan that aligns with your health goals. You may be asked to return on a weekly basis until foundational change is underway. You also may be prescribed an herbal formula or provided specific instructions for diet, exercise or other activities. As your treatment progresses, your plan will be modified, and may include additional Chinese medicine modalities or a change to frequency of appointments.
