TIPS TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR FIRST ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT:
1. Please arrive 15 minutes early, to fill out patient paperwork.
2. Wear or bring loose fitting clothing.
3. Please do not come to the appointment on an empty stomach. Eat a light snack before the treatment.
4. Avoid caffeinated beverages, alcohol, and other stimulants.
5. Please inform us if you are taking any blood thinners.
Acupuncture is covered by many health insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider for the amount covered. After your treatment is paid for, a receipt can be issued upon request, which you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED:
The number of treatments needed will depend upon the length and severity of your condition, and your individual response to treatment. Some conditions respond immediately, while others require several visits before changes are observed. In general, 6 – 10 visits are considered one course of treatment, for one issue.
"A common assumption about acupuncture is that it hurts. You are, after all, getting stuck with needles. Fear of pain from acupuncture needles is one of the most common reasons people forgo acupuncture."
