// Your first visit
When you arrive for your first appointment, we will begin by discussing your concerns, your goals for treatment and your health history. You will have plenty of time to ask questions. Your session will include pulse reading, diagnosis and an acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture needles are extremely fine, sterile, individually packaged and disposable. Many people say that they experience a deep state of relaxation and renewal after their treatment.
At the conclusion of your session, I will formulate a personalized treatment plan to help you reach your goals. Chinese medicine goes beyond needles, and you may receive nutrition, movement, breathing or another lifestyle suggestion to reinforce the acupuncture and help you retain the benefits of your treatment.
First Appointment Checklist:
