What Can I Expect For My First Acupuncture + Shiatsu Appointment?


STEP 1: Complete a comprehensive intake form online

When you make your initial appointment, you will be emailed a link to complete the proper forms.  

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 Oriental medicine takes everything into account.


STEP 2: Meet with Lynn online for your 1-hour initial consultation.

Currently, initial 1-hour consultations are completed online before your initial treatment.  We will go through your health history and review your treatment goals.  Some patients may skip this step and have their initial consult at the clinic with their first treatment.


STEP 3: Come into the clinic for your treatment!

Be sure to come in masked (to comply with CDC recommendations) and wear loose fitting comfortable clothing so I can access points up to your elbows and knees.

Treatments usually involves a combination of acupuncture, shiatsu and moxibustion as well as any other appropriate auxiliary modalities you feel comfortable with. I will walk you through each step! Treatments can be done lying on your back, side, face down, or even seated, depending on your needs.

Each treatment is 60-70 minutes. If you are doing your initial consult in person your appointment will be approximately 90 minutes.
