What to Expect
Sessions typically last 60 minutes and may include some combination of Chinese, Japanese and American (Trigger-Point) acupuncture styles, as needed.
Most people experience deep relaxation during a session. After the needles are in place it's common for us to leave the room for approximately 20-30 minutes to let you relax. A call button is available should you need immediate attention.
It's a good idea to wear loose fitting or comfortable clothing such as exercise clothing to your acupuncture appointment. We often can treat a patient using only the lower legs and lower arms, but occasionally we need to access other areas. We will provide gowns or other coverings on request.
If you are uncomfortable lying down, or staying in one position for more than approximately 20 minutes, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
We want your experience to be as comfortable as possible.
Please refrain from intense exercise and alcoholic drinks 3-4 hours before and after each treatment.
