What should I expect from a first visit?
At your first appointment your condition is assessed and you will be prescribed an acupuncture treatment protocol. A first visit begins with a thorough intake where we will discuss your health history and goals for treatment, followed by a full treatment which may include a combination of acupuncture, acupressure massage, cupping, guasha, and an herbal prescription. At this time your individual treatment plan will be discussed at this time. Acute or new conditions typically resolve within three to six acupuncture treatments. Chronic conditions may require more treatments over time – however our acupuncturist re-evaluates your progress after each treatment to ensure your recovery is as quick as possible.
How many treatments will it take?
The number of treatments necessary to resolve a specific condition will vary depending on the severity of the condition and the underlying constitution of the individual. Chronic conditions take longer to treat, typically 8-10 treatments for significant changes. More recent conditions can often be resolved within 3-6 treatments. It is important to remember that it took your body time to build up imbalances, and it will take time to shift back to greater health. Cultivating patience and self compassion is always helpful when stepping into a healing journey.
