Some things to keep in mind before your appointment

Unless you have scheduled a free initial consultation, your first acupuncture appointment will include a complete treatment with needling. If you’re not sure whether you need/want acupuncture, please schedule an initial consultation (15 to 20 minutes).
Arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork before your first visit.

Wear or bring comfortable clothing that allows access to your arms and legs as well as your abdomen. If you’re coming for an injury, you’ll want to wear something that allows you to move (I have towels and gowns available if necessary).
Bring or forward relevant lab results (or x-ray or MRI results) from your doctor. Although I don’t “diagnose” and treat the same way Western doctors do, this information is very helpful.
Please make sure you’ve eaten within the last two to three hours and are well-hydrated.
Payment (credit card or cash) is due at time of treatment. Acupuncture may be covered by your FSA and HSA accounts and I’m happy to give you proper documentation.

Clinic acupuncture treatments

During a new patient visit, which can take up to two hours, I’ll do a complete health history with highly detailed questions about your menstrual cycle and latest blood/urine tests before inserting the needles. Most patients will also leave with an herbal formula (this is an extra charge) that will change every week or two. If you’re coming for an injury, I will also conduct a physical exam, based on your complaints, and provide take-home exercises and lifestyle recommendations as needed.

Follow-up visits are usually 45 minutes to an hour, during which time I’ll review your progress (including your BBT chart) and address any concerns before inserting the needles and preparing your herbal formula, if you’re taking one. If corrective exercise is part of your treatment plan, your appointment may take longer in order to review exercises.

Acupuncture treatment in the head

Pre- and Post-Transfer IVF Support 

For clients receiving IVF/FET, I will travel to your physician’s office or the hospital to perform acupuncture immediately before and after if allowed. Please let me know as far in advance as you can for this so I can plan. You can also come to my office before and/or afterward if you prefer.

To book a pre/post transfer acupuncture treatment either:

Pilates exercise series

Corrective exercise coaching

Based on your concerns and goals, I’ll assess your posture, strength, range of motion and movement and devise an exercise plan to address any dysfunctions or imbalances. This typically takes 45 minutes to an hour and it’s ideal for the person who sits all day or the recreational athlete who may be experiencing nagging aches and pains or feeling like your body isn’t working the way it should. I am happy to consult with your regular personal trainer or coach to come up with the best plan for you. If you need a personal trainer, I can refer you to my shortlist of elite trainers in the area.

Lifestyle consultation

Based on your concerns and goals, we’ll discuss solutions that include diet, exercise and stress management and potentially acupuncture, herbal medicine and physician or other practitioner referrals. This takes approximately 30 minutes. It’s essentially an expanded initial consultation with more emphasis on your chief complaint.

 

Hiking up

Vim + Vita seasonal “tune-up”

In Chinese medicine, the last 18 days of each season are an ideal time to strengthen and balance your “center” (which corresponds to the earth element) in order to bolster yourself against the changes to come. I’ve found this to be very beneficial for my own health and my clients like having a finite time set aside each quarter to replenish their energy and re-set their focus. The tune-up, which takes about 30 minutes, is not designed to address specific health concerns (although it can help); it’s a time to come in, relax and rejuvenate.
