For Your Acupuncture Appointment

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing
  • Eat a light meal 1-2 hours before your appointment
  • Avoid consuming alcohol
  • Be on time, but avoid rushing to your appointment
  • Avoid wearing perfumes and strongly scented lotions
  • Initial Visit
    Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete a Patient History/Health Questionnaire or download the forms from the website, fill them out at your convenience and bring them with you to your appointment. Bring a list of your medications and supplements to your appointment.Your first visit includes an in-depth assessment of your condition and an initial treatment. Plan on 1 ˝ hours for the visit.Dietary and lifestyle recommendations will be provided to enhance the therapeutic value of the acupuncture treatment.

    Treatment
    The number of needles used varies from person to person. Four to 24 needles are inserted at points appropriate to your condition and retained for 20 minutes. In addition to acupuncture, additional modalities, such as cupping, moxibustion or tui na, may be used to complete your treatment.

    Side Effects
    The most common side effect is a profound sense of relaxation. Patients have commented that they take their best naps after their acupuncture treatments. Rare side effects include slight bruising, muscle aches, light-headedness and sleepiness. These should last for a brief amount of time.

    What to Expect After Treatment
    Your relief may be instantaneous, delayed for a few hours or even materialize after one to three days. The relief may last for a few hours on the first visit and then last longer with each successive treatment. Individual response to treatment varies.

    Course of Treatment
    Acute conditions may require only two or three treatments. Chronic conditions usually require more treatments to achieve lasting results. It is important to note that acupuncture’s effect is cumulative. An initial course of three to five treatments is recommended to determine if acupuncture will help chronic conditions. If there has been no response to the acupuncture after four to six treatments, acupuncture will not likely work and other therapies should be investigated.

    Insurance

    I am currently not in any provider networks, but after receiving payment from you I will provide you with a superbill which you can use to get reimbursed from your insurance company. First check with your insurance company to see if acupuncture is covered, and if there are any limitations to the coverage such as needing a doctor's referral or if only certain conditions may be treated. Then check with your insurance company for the appropriate forms for reimbursement. However, I do accept personal injury covered by auto insurance and workers' compensation.
