1.††† What will happen when you visit?
During the first visit, questions will be asked regarding symptoms, health and lifestyle. I will check your pulses, tongue and conduct a physical exam. This information will be organized to create a diagnosis of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). After the interview, you may receive an acupuncture treatment. The initial visit is about 2 hours. Subsequent treatment sessions are 1 to 2 hours each.
2.††† How many treatments will you need?
After an initial interview, generally a person will come once or twice a week in order to maintain the effect of treatment. As the expected balance is achieved, usually after 10 treatments, treatments are extended to every week, bi-week, monthly and eventually seasonally. Because each person is unique, the frequency of treatment varies with each individual.
3.††† What modalities may be used in the acupuncture treatments?
Acupuncture is one major modality that is used. Acupuncture can be used for a variety of conditions and truly offers a way for one to balance within and harmonize with outside. Acupuncture sessions include a consultation/evaluation, physical examination, acupuncture treatment, and may also incorporate† moxibustion, electro-acupuncture, cupping, massage, TDP far infrared lamp therapy, Chinese herbs , dietary/nutritional and lifestyle recommendations.
4.† Will health insurance cover acupuncture?
Many health insurance companies offer coverage on acupuncture. Health insurance coverage varies a lot. Contact your insurance company to learn if acupuncture is covered.
