Your First Visit

Chinese medicine utilizes a variety of modalities for diagnosing and addressing illness. Every treatment begins with a thorough interview and acupuncture treatment. Other modalities such as soft tissue work, herbal recommendations, and moxibustion may be used based on the individual’s needs. Depending on the condition and goals of treatment, I also incorporate diet, exercise, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations in order to work towards optimal health and prevention of future illness.

First visits are approximately one-and-a-half hours long and subsequent visits last approximately one hour. You may be asked to partially disrobe. In this case, towels, gowns, or other appropriate draping will be provided. If you prefer, you may bring loose fitting shorts and/or t-shirt to change into for your treatment.
