I look forward to meeting you.

What to expect?

Acupuncture points may be selected anywhere on the body, including arms, legs, back, or abdomen so please wear loose fitting clothing that may be rolled up over elbows and knees if needed.


A thorough medical intake will be taken during your first visit. This may include past medical history, current medical history, possibly physical examination (including blood pressure), abdominal palpation, pulse and tongue examination. 


The pulse and tongue provide your practitioner a great amount of information regarding the body.  Although this may feel strange to stick your tongue out at your practitioner, this is an important part of the diagnosis. 

Please keep in mind that the First Initial visit will be roughly 45-60 

minutes long and returning visits will be 30-45 minutes long. 

Clinic Forms

Please complete the following forms in there entirety prior to your first visit. If you would prefer to complete the forms at the time of your appointment, please let me know prior to your appointment. Thank you.
