WHAT DOES ACUPUNCTURE INVOLVE?
The initial appointment is a combination of consultation and treatment known as the Intake. The Intake session lasts between 60-90 minutes and includes a comprehensive review of the patient’s medical history. Utilizing alternative and traditional diagnostic methods, an individualized, natural treatment protocol is developed for the patient. Follow-up consultations are approximately50 minutes.
Following the Intake, treatment protocol consists of subsequent sessions that include the use of Acupuncture modalities, herbs, dietary recommendations, exercise prescriptions, counseling techniques, body work and stress reduction methods. As the patient progresses with treatment, the protocol is modified to maintain focused health goals.
