Length of first treatment?
During the initial visit, there is an extensive ‘intake’ of patient information to create a composite diagnosis. This involves questions about one’s physical, mental, and emotional state; careful analysis of the tongue and pulses; palpation of the abdomen; and examination of the skin, body odors, voice posture, and movement. First treatment last about 75 minutes. Follow up treatments lasts about 1 hour.
What to wear?
It is best to wear comfortable loose clothing for the acupuncture treatment. (i.e. shorts, a comfortable T-shirt, tank top, etc.) Also please refrain from drink or eating anything that may stain your tongue prior to your appointment. It’s best to eat a light meal an hour or so prior to your visit.
