During our first meeting we will have an extensive intake to review your overall health, primary concerns, and see which services are right for you. Reviewing your health history, along with the acupuncture treatment itself, will take approximately 60 minutes. Prior to your appointment please download the forms on the Initial Treatment page and fill them out so we can get right into the appointment when we first meet. If you are unable to download them, please arrive 15 minutes early to fill them out.
Most appointments following our initial intake will be 50 minutes unless otherwise discussed. If possible please wear loose clothing that is easily pushed up to the knee and/or elbow. Also please make sure to have eaten prior to arriving so your blood sugar is nice and even!
Services may include the following modalities according to your individual needs: acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, gua sha, nutritional counseling and/or herbal consultation. I have extensive training in both Western Clinical Herbalism as well as Traditional Chinese Herbalism.
