New Patient

How Should I prepare for my fist visit?

  • It is best to wear or bring loose fitting clothing- most of the points are located on the arms and legs so it helps to wear clothing that can be rolled up. If not, towels may be provided.
  • Avoid eating heavy meals 2 hours prior to treatment, but do try to have something light beforehand. You should not come to your appointment on an empty stomach. It is also recommended that you avoid over-exercise, caffeine, nicotine & alcohol shortly before and after treatment.
  • Your acupuncturist will need to examine your tongue as part of the intake, so please avoid brushing or scraping it for at least 48 hours prior to your next appointment. You should also try to avoid intake of colorful beverages or foods that can discolor the tongue.
  • Please print and complete the appropriate forms below and bring them with you to your initial appointment.
