General Q & A:

What does a typical Initial Office Visit consist of?
Initial Assessment: Your first visit involves assessing the problem, educating you about the problem and often providing an acupuncture and/or herbal treatment at the same time. The appointment will consist of a detailed history and Traditional Oriental Medicine assessment, often providing you with a treatment program to get you started. All your questions related to your condition(s) will be answered as clearly as possible.
Schedule yourself from an hour to one and a half hour depending on the problem.

How should I prepare for my appointment?
Because the tongue is routinely examined as part of Chinese diagnosis, please do not brush the tongue or discolor it with hard candy, cough drops, tea or coffee within three hours of your appointment.
For best results from your acupuncture treatment, eat moderately within three hours of your treatment. Please do not come on an empty stomach or overly full.

What should I wear?
Loose clothing is best, especially pants. If it is necessary to remove constrictive clothing, sheets are available for coverage.

Should I avoid anything after acupuncture?
Avoid strenuous activity, baths, hot tubs and preferably any strong substances such as nicotine or alcohol for three hours after the treatment. Soup or a warm cup of tea is very beneficial after a treatment.

Will I get Herbs?
Most patients are prescribed herbs in one form or another. Chinese herbs are usually in the form of pills, powders, liniments, plasters or raw, which are boiled into a decoction.
We will discuss which type is best for you in terms of effectiveness and convenience.

If I have a Cold or Flu, what should I do?
Don’t wait until your next appointment. Call so you can get advice over the phone or be seen if necessary. The sooner a cold or flu is treated, the better it responds.
