General Questions - 1
What should you expect during your first visit?
During your first visit, I usually carry out an in-depth interview and exam that includes asking numerous
questions about your primary complaint, as well as a complete health history, and relevant aspects of your
health.  That helps to build up a complete picture and to put your illness into a holistic context.  After the first visit,
a customized treatment will be formulated.
During your treatment, you will lie either face up or face down in a comfortable position on a massage table,
listening to relaxing music and receiving therapy.

How many treatments will you need?
That depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint.  You may need only a single treatment
for an acute condition.  A series of five to twelve treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Some
degenerative conditions may require many treatments over time.

How painful is it?
The needles are generally painless and most people only feel a tapping sensation.

Are the needles clean?
Only sterile disposable needles are used. This eliminates the possibility of transmitting a communicable
disease by a contaminated needle.

What if I fear needles?
If you fear needles, perhaps Acupressure, Electro-acupuncture, Tui Na massage, cupping, magnets, or
herbs would work better for you.

Why do they want to look at my tongue?
The tongue is a map of your body, reflecting the general health or your organ and meridian systems.
Your acupuncturist will look at the color, shape, and coating of your tongue.

Why do they want to feel my pulses?
There are 12 main positions on your wrists that your acupuncturist will feel. Each position corresponds to an
organ and meridian system. Your acupuncturist will be looking for 28 pulse qualities that relfect the balance of Qi
and your general sate of health. If there are any imbalances they will appear in your pulse.
