On your first visit, your practitioner will review your new patient intake form and ask detailed questions about your health, history and lifestyle to better understand your underlying constitution and provide a treatment plan specific to you. They might examine your tongue, feel your pulse on both wrists, and perform other diagnostic methods.
Based on the results of this thorough evaluation, your practitioner will propose a treatment plan which can include, acupuncture treatments, herbal remedies, therapeutic massage, medical qigong, and/or dietary therapy. If an herbal prescription is recommended you will receive instructions on how to prepare and take the herbs. It is highly recommended that you follow the treatment plan prescribed to achieve the best results. Your first appointment will last approximately 60-90 minutes.
