You can expect your first appointment to last an hour and a half. During this first session, we do a thorough intake on all your health systems in order to create a personalized treatment plan. We then do a treatment. People often experience a sense of deep relaxation that continues after the treatment. We urge you to eat a small meal or a snack before treatment. Subsequent treatments will last between 35 to 50 minutes, depending on what we are working on. Herbal formulas may be recommended in conjunction to your treatment.
I typically give the patient a framework for treatments during the initial diagnosis. Generally, with acupuncture I expect some kind of change within 5 to 6 treatments, at the end of which your progress is evaluated. With chronic sleep issues however, it may take longer to see a shift. If you’ve been struggling with an issue for ten years it could take significantly longer to see a major shift take place. Our goal is always for you to experience a real change for the better.
