What to Expect During the Initial Consultation



During the Initial Acupuncture Consultation and Treatment, a full health history will be taken. Your licensed acupuncturist will ask you a series of health and lifestyle questions and perform diagnostic tests that will help lead to a diagnosis. Your acupuncturist will explain the nature of your condition and discuss a treatment plan with you at your following visit.

Acupuncture needles will then be inserted into specific areas of the body and left in place for 30 minutes. While the needles are in, it is best to lay still to avoid any unnecessary pain from shifting needles.

If necessary, herbs, cupping, or other modalities may be used to augment the healing process.

Initial visits costs $175 and will last between 75-90 minutes.

Future visits costs $105 and lasts 60 minutes.
