What can I expect at my first visit?
Your first visit will last about 90 min. Once completing the intake we will discuss present concerns, complete a medical history and examination, including traditional tongue and pulse exam, and come up with a course for treatment.
How many treatments will I need, and the frequency?
The number and frequency of the treatments will depend on the condition presented and the progress seen after each session. Acute conditions usually take 5-10 treatments with a commitment of weekly sessions. For more chronic and severe issues, longer treatments are required.
Does it hurt?
Sensations that may be experienced during treatment are individually based. Depending on a patients sensitivity, sensations such as a feeling of heaviness, itching, burning, tingling, and electrical impulse may occur at the place of insertion. These sensations will typically last a few seconds and dissipate. If any time you encounter discomfort please notify me and I will make adjustments accordingly.
