What to Expect

Initial Assessment

During the assessment, you may be asked about: your emotions, sleeping patterns, and eating habits. Chinese Medicine considers the whole person, not just one isolated symptom. When put together, the myriad of signs and symptoms reveal patterns of disharmony. Although treatment will focus on your chief complaint, your whole being must be considered in order to develop the most appropriate course of treatment. Chinese Medicine is unique in that it appreciates that illnesses may be identical, but the people suffering from them are individuals.


Needles are typically retained for about 15 to 30 minutes.  Relaxing during this time will maximize the benefits of the treatment.

What to Expect After Treatment

Individual response to treatment varies. Your relief may be immediate, delayed for a few hours, or even develop after one to three days. The relief may last for a few hours on the first visit and then last longer with each successive treatment, or relief may last from the first treatment until your next visit.
