Get ready to relax! Please have something to eat or a snack before your appointment.

You can brush your teeth, but leave your tongue alone –- at least for today. Your tongue is a reflection of what's happening in your body; we look at the color, coating, and shape. Attempt to drink water instead of coffee or colored drink before your visit.

Wear comfortable Clothing. We often need to access spots around your knees or elbows - wearing loose clothing can help.


Your first appointment will take about one hour. This includes the initial intake and the acupuncture treatment. Subsequent visits generally last between 45 minutes to one hour. Many find this a perfect opportunity to take a catnap.
