Your Admission and First Treatment

When you arrive for your admission appointment, I will review your completed comprehensive intake form. The admission form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Oriental medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.

After reviewing your intake form,  I will examine your pulse and tongue,  check your abdomen, and other areas associated with your main complaint. These are the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points I choose will depend on your condition, but you can expect approximately 10-20 thin, tiny needles. Once the needles are inserted, I will leave you to lie comfortably for 20-30 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.
