What to Expect

I’m excited to be able to share my practical and general wellness knowledge with you here. Explore my latest news and updates below and get in touch with any questions or requests about topics you’d like me to cover.

Before the Treatment

For your first visit, we'll go over your health history and discuss your main concern(s). Being detailed with the intake form is very helpful and appreciated. Followup appointments will include a shorter intake where we discuss the progress you've made. 

Avoid coming to the appointment on an empty stomach.

During the Treatment

Each followup appointment is scheduled for 50 minutes which includes the time we catch up on how you're feeling. Needles are typically retained for 20-30 minutes each session. You don't have to do anything while receiving treatment - take the opportunity to take a deep breath and relax. Most people fall asleep during the treatment so enjoy your nap!

After the Treatment

Many people find that acupuncture treatment gives them a deep sense of relaxation so they often don't want to do anything afterwards. Try to take it easy for the rest of the day and avoid any intense cardio or heavy weight-lifting. Going for a walk or doing some low impact movement like yoga is fine. Avoid alcohol for the rest of the day.
