Waivers, Privacy Policy, Consent and Referral -- Print, Initial and Sign

Welcome Letter -- For your information only

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment you will ask you to complete a comprehensive intake and sign hard copies of the waivers and consent form. The acupuncture intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Eastern medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.

After reviewing your intake form the acupuncturist will discuss your condition, and your pulse and tongue will be examined, which are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points chosen will depend on your condition, but you can expect approximately 10-18 needles. Once the needles are inserted, the acupuncturist will leave you to lie comfortably for approximately 45 minutes with the needles in place. Some patients prefer shorter resting times others longer. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time, so please let us know if there is a particular time you need to wake up.
