Your First Acupuncture Treatment
The first treatment is 75-90 minutes and consists of 2 sections:
Health History Intake
Your first acupuncture treatment will include a thorough health history designed to uncover all of your underlying imbalances that may be contributing to the problem for which you are seeking help.
This is usually the part where you will become aware of several problematic areas in your health or your life that you did not even know were contributors. Your history is very valuable because it is here that we discover the correct diagnostic pattern to treat.
Please be as open, honest, and forthcoming as possible with your information in this section as it will serve you well later on.
Your Treatment Session
Following the interview, you will also receive your first acupuncture session at this time, lasting about 45 minutes.
In addition to the actual acupuncture component of the treatment, you may also receive a variety of related acupuncture techniques based on your needs such as:
- gua sha
- auricular (ear) therapy
- electronic stimulation
- tui na bodywork
- nutritional and lifestyle counseling
Upon completion of the treatment, I will provide you with a clear health care plan that includes a Corrective Care Plan, a Wellness Care Plan, and a Maintenance Plan. Herbal, dietary, excercise and other recommendations will be discussed at this time.
And as always, questions are welcome! The more you understand about your treatment regimen, the more you will get out of it. Your may feel intimidated before going in for your first session, maybe even a little nervous.
You are always welcome to stop by my acupuncture clinic located in the Denver Tech Center for a free needle demonstration to ease your mind before committing to treatment.
