Acupuncture Treatments

“Every patient is an individual; therefore each acupuncture treatment plan is unique and tailored to your needs.  I am committed to helping people find a natural balance between body, mind and spirit.”

Your first appointment will be longer than subsequent sessions.  This will last approximately 1 1/2 hours – to allow time for a Chinese medical diagnosis.

A detailed understanding is required of your symptoms: past medical and family history, your lifestyle, diet and how well all the systems in your body are functioning.

Assessment will also include examination of the tongue and the pulse on both wrists. A personal acupuncture treatment plan will be put together, based on information ascertained at the first appointment. Subsequent treatments will last approximately 1 hour.

Frequency of treatment varies from person to person.  Sometimes the effects of treatment are rapid and only a few treatments are required.  For other people the effects are more subtle and treatment may be needed over several months.
