Are You New to Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a wonderful means of addressing health.
If you're new to acupuncture, keep this in mind prior to the first visit:
You may feel tired after your first visit. This is because the body will now be working hard in response to treatment. It's perfectly normal-some people look forward to the deep relaxation!-and across an ongoing series of visits it becomes part of the normal expectation.
- Dress comfortably. We can always gown you as needed during treatment.
- Eat lightly within an hour or two of your appointment. Don't come to an afternoon appointment after only black coffee and dry toast for breakfast!
- If you have concerns, please talk about them.
I'm a process-oriented acupuncturist. This means I will be talking to you as I treat you, checking in about your comfort and the direction the treatment is taking.
Acupuncture is a fascinating process. I hope to convince you of this from the moment we begin our work.
