What to Expect

  • Comprehensive review of your past and present healthcare needs.
  • We will take your pulse and look at your tongue. These are techniques that give us insight into the past and present health of the individual and help with our diagnosing and treatment plan.
  • We may palpate your abdomen or any areas of pain or tension.
  • If you are coming in for an abdominal massage we will evaluate pelvic and hip, as well as uterine, alignment.
  • After talking about the plan, you will be guided on how to best get ready. For acupuncture, if you are wearing easy to move clothing, usually there is no need to remove anything.
  • For acupuncture, we will insert thin needles into a number of points on the body. Usually people fall asleep! We then leave you to rest for 15-25 minutes.
  • During cupping, ATMAT, and other body work, we will be in the room during the entire treatment time.
  • After your treatment is over we will discuss your treatment plan, talk about self-care, go over any questions, what to expect for follow up with us and schedule your next appointment.
  • Before your next appointment we will send you an email detailing things we talked about during the treatment that pertain to your treatment plan and any recommendations. You'll also get any pertinent self-care hand outs or further recommendations and explanations of your Chinese Medical pattern.
