Wear comfortable clothes that make it easy to access elbows and knees

How long are appointments?
For most patients:
First visit - 1 hour and 15 minutes
Return visits - 1 hour
At your first appointment, we will start with some paper work to get a brief health history. After a discussion about your main health concern, we will get you seated in a comfortable recliner. You remove your socks and shoes, but keep the rest of your clothes. We will then insert the acupuncture needles. Most often, the acupuncture points used will be on your lower legs and arms. You stay relaxed and retaining the needles until you feel like you want to get up, (or if you need to leave at a certain time, just let your practitioner know). Once you feel finished with your treatment, get the practitioner's attention by opening your eyes and giving them a meaningful look. They will then be over to pull the needles. The acupuncturist will determine a course of treatment and you will have an idea of the frequency of your visits and when you can expect to see results.
Acupuncture works the best in a series of treatments. While one treatment may bring some relief, to get lasting effects, it takes consistent, frequent acupuncture. How often you receive acupuncture and for how long depends on a few factors. What the condition is, how severe, and how long it has been going on are all part of determining how much acupuncture you will need.
