Watch this video to know what to expect, and then read below how to prepare for your acupuncture treatment.
Please carefully read through this information to best prepare for your treatment.
New Patients: Please complete all online forms found in your Patient Portal. Or, arrive 30 minutes early to complete. This will ensure adequate time for you to you receive proper treatment.
What to wear
Please wear or bring loose-fitting clothing that can be rolled up or down. Sweat pants, skirts, tank tops, etc. are the most convenient. Feel free to bring such clothes with you and change them when you get to the clinic. Many of the needles may be placed in your extremities, and easy access is helpful for treatment. Sterile cloth sheets are provided for clothing removal as needed.
What about food?
It is important that you are neither hungry nor too full during your acupuncture treatment. Even if you do not feel hungry, you should make sure that you have eaten something within 2-5 hours of the appointment. Acupuncture can be risky if blood sugar is too low.
Notify us if you are feeling sick:
We can help.
Infections and illnesses, such as colds, flu’s, ear infections, and allergies, are easily treated if addressed within the first 24 hours of onset or as soon as possible. If not immediately addressed, these conditions may delay your movement toward healing, and it could be complicated by your current herbal formula. It is essential to let your acupuncturist know of such illnesses.
What about alcohol, marijuana or pain killers?
Please avoid alcohol, marijuana and painkillers before your treatment. These substances can inhibit your body from receiving the full effects of acupuncture and create other problems.
Coffee is best avoided before treatment as it can stimulate your sympathetic nervous system (fight-or-flight), inhibiting relaxation and reducing the effectiveness of treatment.
Please turn off your cell phone.
It will help you relax and receive the full benefits of the treatment. This is your time and no one else’s. Make it count.
What should I bring to my first visit?

Sharing information about acupuncture treatment with your western (MD) physician
I encourage you to be as open as possible about discussing acupuncture or herbal treatments with your physician. It is important that your physician knows that factors other than his/her treatments may be affecting your condition. Ultimately, the patients benefit the most with integrated care. We am happy to talk to and work with any physician who has questions about Chinese medicine or the intended treatment specifically. I do not encourage patients to use Chinese medicine as a substitute for standard physician care. Both medical systems working in tandem often provide optimal results.
Nervous about needles?
People who have high levels of anxiety surrounding acupuncture may benefit from other treatment modalities that we provide, such as Fire Cupping, nutrition & herbal medicine, Laser Therapy, VYBE massage, acupressure or moxibustion. Please inform us of any apprehension you may have regarding acupuncture treatment. If needed, we are happy to refer you to other health practitioners that might better suit your needs. Generally people find acupuncture to be a highly pleasurable experience with minimal, if any, discomfort.
