What to Expect
Your first session involves a full consultation to find out about your current problem as well as other aspects of your health. Details of your past medical history, medications, supplements and relevant test results will be useful at this point. Your tongue and pulse will also be examined according to traditional Chinese diagnostics.
Based on this information a treatment plan will be worked out tailored to your individual needs after which you will have your first acupuncture treatment.
It is best to try to wear loose clothing when coming for acupuncture and try not to eat a large meal or drink strong coffee or alcohol just prior to a treatment.
