Initial Exam & Therapy
Your acupuncturist will review your existing health concerns and medical history. She will walk you step-by-step through the acupuncture treatment including how it works, what to expect, and answer any questions you may have.
You will then receive an acupuncture treatment combined with other healing modalities such as moxibustion, essential oils, manual therapy, electrical stimulation, cupping, gua sha, along with nutritional, lifestyle, or herbal recommendations.
The follow-up therapy starts with a brief check in to see how you are feeling, what changes you may have observed and any questions you might have.
You'll receive a full acupuncture treatment and any herbal formulas and supplement recommendations the practitioner may have. Other modalities may be added at this time.
Your response to treatment often indicates how long the therapy will take.
