What to Expect During Your First Visit
Your first visit with an acupuncturist may take an hour or more. The acupuncturist will ask you about your current concerns and do a thorough evaluation of your past medical history as well as a brief physical exam. Once the acupuncturist has enough information she will develop a diagnosis based on the theory of Chinese Medicine and will discuss with you a course of treatment for your condition.
Depending on what points the acupuncturist decides to use, you may be asked to change into a patient gown or shorts so you back, legs, or abdomen are accessable.
The treatment that you receive may be any combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, Chinese massage, cupping, or other non invasive techniques. Acupuncture needles are solid and very fine so insertion causes very little discomfort and is sometimes undetectable by the patient.
Future appointments will generally consist of a brief interview on your current symptoms and any changes that may have occurred so treatment can continue or a new treatment plan can be made.
We recommend 3 treatments about a week apart to start out, you should start to feel better and we can evaluate your need for more treatments and time in between. A full course of treatment is about 10 sessions and, if you are feeling good, treatments can stop at that time. Many people do not need all 10 sessions to get better.
