General Patient information
If you have current diagnostic test results (blood tests, imaging, etc.) bringing those with you will also assist your practitioner in giving you the best possible treatment.
Eat something good at least an hour before your appointment.
Wear comfortable clothing.
What should I expect at a treatment?
For Acupuncture appointments, your initial appointment will consist of a thorough evaluation of your medical history, diet, as well as physical and emotional state. We work to understand your expectations as well as your body’s needs. Your acupuncturist will then choose the appropriate modalities for you (needles, cupping, moxa, gua-sha, etc.) and begin your treatment. Wear loose fitting clothing that can be rolled up to the elbows and knees. At your first appointment, we will discuss the best treatment plan for your specific condition.
Herbal consults will start similar in form, with a thorough evaluation of your medical history and what is going on in your health. Another major component of herbal consults is your medicinal history. Please have a list of your current medications, including any herbal supplements and vitamins. We will create a custom formula for you and either have it sent to a local pharmacy or delivered to your door, as required.
Tuina Bodywork often includes gentle stretching and shaking of muscles to reduce tension. Tuina Bodywork can be a good substitute for acupuncture for many health issues! It is especially good for those who are sensitive to needles or who have more mild complaints. Also, most Tuina Bodywork treatments can be done without removing any clothing. We just ask that you wear clothing that is comfortable and slightly stretchy.
Reiki Attunement begins with an evaluation that encompasses physical and mental issues. Then we use meditation breathing and movement exercises to bring the body into the space. The practice of Reiki is calming, removing stress and producing a level of wellness for the patient.

What if I can't make my appointment?
Life has a way of keeping us on our toes. We understand that things happen that can prevent you from keeping a previously booked appointment. Because of this, you may reschedule or cancel your appointment up to 24 hours before your appointment time without a fee.
If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged 50% of the service fee.
If you do not contact us to cancel your appointment AND do not show up for your appointment, you will be charged the full service fee. To repeat: no shows will be charged the full service fee.
(These fees may be waved in cases of emergency.)
