How Your First Acupuncture Appointment is Structured
A Complete Health History –
As a licensed acupuncturist, I want to know the roots of your health concerns and will spend a good deal of time asking you a variety of questions regarding your symptoms and lifestyle habits. such as eating and exercise, in addition to mental health and sleep patterns.
Chinese Medicine-Specific Diagnostics –
Chinese medicine approaches wellness much differently than traditional medicine, so we implement diagnostics, such as a pulse and tongue diagnostic tools. These diagnostics are crucial to your course of treatment, but are non-invasive and completely gentle.
Patient Treatment Plan –
After I’ve taken your medical history and completed the diagnostics, you will receive a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan — there are no guesses or assumptions in our acupuncture clinic, as we are transparent with exactly what we are doing. With the treatment plan, you will then receive an estimate of care and a timeline to which it will be addressed in.
