Acupuncture is a process and therefore you should plan to come for a series of treatments.
It is suggested to come twice a week at the start of treatments. If you cannot come twice per week, do not space the treatments out to more than once per week. Treatments build off of each other. Once you are feeling well through a week, we will start to space your appointments out to once every 10 days or two weeks. Appointments continue to be spaced out according to how you are feeling in the time between your appointments.
Acupuncture treatments build off of each other. You may experience some relief after the first treatment, and you might not. You are most likely to experience some kind of positive change in symptoms by the third treatment. For conditions that are very severe or chronic, the treatment process usually takes longer.
Wear loose fitting clothing to your first appointment and don't arrive hungry - allow your body some energy to work with during your treatments.
Before your appointment:
Please verify your benefits by calling your insurance carrier. The phone number is on the back of your insurance card. Each plan varies greatly. Online verifications and information is not always accurate.
