New Patient


Your first treatment typically lasts up to 90-120 minutes and includes a thorough initial intake and evaluation. Follow up treatments typically last 45 – 90 mins.

It is recommended that you do not come to your appointment on an empty stomach.
In the first 15 minutes or so, we will go over your health history and do a thorough intake of your entire health. we will also ask about things that may not seem related to your chief complaint, such as your sleep, digestion, energy level etc. All of this information allows us to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbal supplements are often used together with acupuncture to have the best results.
