BACKUPUNCTURE_Needle-03.png

preparing for your Acupuncture session

Treatments begin with a comprehensive evaluation and may include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions, dietary recommendations, and a host of other modalities. You will be sent complete forms to fill out, though you can always just show up 15 minutes or more before your appointment to fill them out here.

Though you may be treated fully-clothed, please try to wear loose clothing. Or even better, bring shorts, and a tanktop/sport-bra to give the most treatment options. Gowns are also available should you need one.

Make sure to some in without too empty a stomach — acupuncture can make you feel “tranquilized” and low blood sugar can accentuate this effect! It’s also good to cover up your pain areas after a treatment if it’s cold out or you are going to be in heavy air-conditioning.
