Your first visit combines an in-depth evaluation with a brief, non-invasive physical examination. Our practitioner will ask you about your present health concerns as well as your medical history, lifestyle, and the functioning of various body systems (e.g., sleep, appetite, sight, hearing, etc.)

Following the initial examination or a re-evaluation if this is a subsequent visit or follow-up our practitioner will insert hair-thin needles at prescribed acupuncture points depending on the diagnosis and condition being treated. The needles will be left in place for approximately 15-30 minutes; during that time you do not need to do anything more than lay back and relax.

Acupuncture needles used in our office are the finest stainless steel, pre-sterilized, individually packaged disposable needles. All needles are promptly discharged after use in proper biohazard containers. Acupuncture needles are usually not much thicker than a strand of hair and their insertion is particularly painless. Typically, only a slight prick is felt at first, and then there is another sensation, usually described as a dull ache, when the needle reaches the acupuncture point. This sensation usually lasts for 1 to 2 seconds. Some people are energized by the treatment, while others feel relaxed.

This depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. For acute conditions, fewer treatments are necessary, while chronic conditions generally require more time. I recommend 5-10 consecutive treatments for most patients, at which time we re-evaluate and set up a follow-up schedule that suits the needs of the patient.
