Acupuncture is one of our clinic's most popular treatments, and also its most unique. As such, please observe the following guidelines when receiving treatment:
1. It is best to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes.
During a treatment we might need to access various parts of your body, usually your arms, legs, and back. If you are coming from work, we have hangers for your business clothes and we can provide you with a cover during your treatment.
2. Be sure to eat something during the mealtime prior to your visit.
It is very important to have nourishment in your system during an acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture utilizes your body's energy much like an exercise session would; if your blood sugar is low, you will not respond as quickly to the acupuncture treatments. Please ask for a snack if you need one.
3. Allow plenty of time for your visit.
You will need to spend about 1½ to 2 hours at the clinic during your initial visit. This time allows you to complete initial patient paperwork and allows us to ask many questions, obtain an accurate diagnosis of your condition, and give you an acupuncture treatment. Most of your return visits will last about 1 hour to 1½ hours. Please let us know if you require a quicker treatment.
