Read Our Welcome Letter >

We understand that a first appointment with a new practitioner may seem a little overwhelming, rest assured, we will make every effort to help you feel at ease.

Notes for your visit:

     1.  Please eat a moderate amount of food 1 to 1.5 hours before your appointment.
          Acupuncture moves a lot of energy in your body so eating something prior to your
          appointment will insure your body has energy to move.  If you can’t have a meal,
          a nutritious snack is OK. A bag of chips and a can of pop does not count as a
          nutritious snack.
     2.  Wear loose clothing.  There should be easy access to your legs up to mid-thigh,
          arms including shoulders, abdomen and back.  If you prefer, you can change
          clothes at the clinic.
     3.  Whenever possible, arrange your schedule so you do not have to rush to, or away
          from the clinic.
     4.  If you must leave right away or earlier than the allotted time, please tell us at the
          beginning of the appointment.
     5.  Please tell us as soon as possible if you are uncomfortable with physical touch or
          discussing some activities or parts of the body
     6.  Please do NOT brush or scrape the coating from your tongue on that day. Tongue
          analysis is one of the unique aspects of Chinese medical diagnosis, and seeing the
          tongue in its natural state will greatly assist me in establishing a treatment
     7.  Cell phones and pagers should be turned off to ensure maximum relaxation once
          you have entered the treatment room.
