What will my acupuncturist do during my visit?
During the initial exam we will take a full health history and you will be asked questions regarding your symptoms, health, nutrition and lifestyle. Your Acupuncturist will check your pulses, look at your tongue and may conduct a physical exam.
Considering all these factors, as well as discussing your stress level and other lifestyle factors, your acupuncturist will put together a comprehensive diagnosis and discern where the imbalances are in your body. After completing the intake and diagnosis, your acupuncturist will formulate a treatment plan and insert needles accordingly. You will then have an opportunity to rest for about 30 minutes.
