When you come in for your first visit please be sure to have eaten before you arrive. Also wear comfortable clothing. The first visit will entail a detailed discussion about your health concerns and your past health history. The first appointment will be approximately 1 1/2 hours. The follow-up treatments range from 45 minutes to 1 hour. Since every person is unique in their own condition, the numbers of treatments will vary.
In addition to acupuncture, your visit may include other treatment modalities such as cupping, moxibustion (burning herbs to heat acupoints), auricular therapy (ear acupuncture), herbal consultations and nutritional counseling.
As the medical community increasingly recognizes the benefits of acupuncture, more insurance providers and PPO’s are covering all or part of the cost of treatments. Health insurance policies vary, and should be reviewed to determine what benefits are provided. If you have insurance that covers Acupuncture the office will bill for you.
Once you have made your first appointment, you will be emailed a health history form. Please fill out the form and bring it with you on your first visit. This information that you provide will be helpful in treating your condition.
