Experiencing a Treatment

People describe treatments as surprisingly pain-free, deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experiences. Treatments consist primarily of Acupuncture, Herbs, Lifestyle and Nutritional Counsel. Additional Treatment Modalities are Cupping, Auricular Acupuncture, Electro-Acupuncture, Gua Sha, Moxibustion, and Acupressure.

Creating Your First Treatment:

- Schedule an Appointment Online
- Complete initial medical paperwork online in our "Patient Portal"  Create a "New Account" (located below the login) and the paperwork will become available to you.  This allows me to understand your concerns and prepare for your treatment before your walk in.
- If you prefer a paper version, download and complete both the Consent Forms & Medical Questionnaire, or come fifteen minutes early and complete the paperwork in the clinic. 

Preparing for a Treatment:

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing; such as yoga pants and a t-shirt. Enjoy a light meal or snack, such as a banana, within an hour or two before your treatment.

A typical treatment lasts an hour with a brief interview at the beginning to assess treatment direction. Needle stimulation occurs for 15-30 minutes, but may vary depending on the circumstances. Patients often describe an overall sense of deep relaxation or they may fall asleep. After the treatment, we recommend going home to relax, avoiding any physically demanding activities for the rest of the day.

Course of Treatment:

The treatment course depends on the complexity of the complaint and your core well-being. Patient often experience improvement in 2-10 treatments. Chronic conditions, or those with underlying deep deficiency of health, may require further treatment. Many choose to continue treatment once a month simply as maintenance of overall health.

Creating Health:

Health is an experience we choose to create everyday for ourselves. It's clear that what we choose to engage daily will impact us. The more conscious our choices about what we eat, if we exercise, what emotions we typically feel, how we hold our bodies, our levels of stress, the people we choose to interact with - the clearer our understanding of health. The more responsibility we take for our health, including creating a healthy environment for ourselves, body, mind and spirit - the healthier we become.
