Welcome Letter: What to Expect at the Clinic
What We Need from You
Acupuncture is an excellent complement to Western medicine. Because Asian medicine has a different approach and priorities, many conditions are easily and well served by Acupuncture and Oriental medicine. We can also provide complementary care for conditions which require a physician’s attention—for instance we often treat patients for the side effects of chemotherapy or assist with preparation for surgery or recovery after surgery.
Because we do not have a lab or hospital access, we are not able to diagnose serious conditions and we do need you to take responsibility for your health. If you have, or think you may have, a potentially serious condition—a malignant growth, serious infection, unexplained weight loss or gain, severe abdominal pain, etc.— you need to see a primary care physician.
We can also provide some excellent referrals.
Preparation & Clinic Etiquette
Your CLINIC VISIT In community practice, patients are treated in comfortable reclining chairs. Treatment protocols emphasize powerful acupuncture points below the elbows and knees, as well as on the head and ears, so you remain fully clothed during treatment. Loose fitting clothing is recommended so you can easily roll up shirt sleeves and pant legs. Expect to spent about 60 minutes at the clinic and 75 minutes if you are new.
We strive to create a peaceful, safe environment in our clinic so patients can fully relax into the healing process! At your first visit, a consultation will be performed to cover your health concerns and relevant history. During this time you will have an opportunity to ask questions or discuss concerns. Traditional diagnostic methods may be used to establish the root cause of your imbalance, including pulse reading and tongue inspection.
After the consultation, remove your socks and shoes and roll your pants and sleeves above your knees and elbows—you remain fully clothed during the treatment. After you are comfortably situated, your acupuncturist will begin the needling treatment. After needles are placed, they are retained for a period of time while you rest. Go ahead and close your eyes. When you open your eyes, your treatment is over. The typical rest period is 30 minutes to 1 hour, but please feel free to stay as long as you like. When you feel you are sufficiently “cooked,” simply make eye contact with the acupuncturist or give a slight cough, and you will be promptly “unpinned.”
On subsequent visits, a brief intake will be performed to gather necessary information. Talking is minimized in order to focus our attention on the acupuncture treatment itself. If you would like to speak to the acupuncturist at length, please schedule a separate consultation for that purpose.
To get the most from your treatment, consider the following.
