When you come in, you’ll be greeted by me or someone else working in my office. We’ll go into the treatment room, where we’ll talk quite a bit about what’s going on in your life. The questions vary based on what’s going on in your life, but they cover sleep, stress, digestion, and emotions. We’ll probably laugh (I like to laugh!), and it will be pretty laid back.
Next, we’ll start the actual acupuncture. The insertion of the needles is quick (about 5 minutes) and then you’ll have time to relax, for about 20 minutes. After that, I’ll take out the needles and we’ll finish of with massage. You’ll be on your way feeling calmer and more centered!
Here’s the full list:
It depends on what we’re working on, but most of my clients come in for 4-8 sessions, then go on a maintenance schedule (when they come in as they need it).
I recommend that you eat a meal 1-4 hours before your session (don’t eat right before, but make sure you’re not hungry). If you have any questions or concerns, discuss them with me prior to beginning the actual acupuncture session – this will help ensure that you are as relaxed as possible for the treatment.
Ok, no problem! Just let me know ahead of time, and we can reschedule at a later date. In order to provide the best quality of care to my clients, I maintain a very strict 24-hour cancellation policy. This means that if you need to change your appointment, you must do so at least 24 hours before your appointment time. If you don’t, you will be charged for the session. You can email me, or respond to your reminder email.
Yes, absolutely! There are different levels to the way acupuncture affects the body.
I’ve had clients come in with nothing “wrong” with them who have been able to create huge leaps in their life (career changes, love life improvements, conquering fears) through our sessions. Contact me for more information on this!
No, you don’t need to tip me! If you had a great session and want to show thanks, the best thing you can do is spread the word. Tell your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors…don’t just tell them about me, but tell them about what acupuncture was like and how you’ve benefitted. People deserve to know all the ways they can heal themselves, wouldn’t you agree?
