What to expect the first treatment
During your first office visit, the acupuncturist will ask you at length about your health condition and lifestyle. The practitioner will want to obtain a complete picture of your treatment needs and behaviors that may contribute to your condition.
Inform the acupuncturist about all treatments or medications you are taking and all medical conditions you have. The first treatment usually takes one and a half hours so please plan accordingly. We tailor the treatment according to each patientís individual comfort level.
