The first thing that you will need to do to prepare for your treatment is fill out your information on our paperless patient information. The information that you provide will help us to prepare for your upcoming treatment.
Before you arrive for your appointment you should have a snack or small meal. If you do not have food within your system it can cause problems. Acupuncture uses the energy (Qi) of the body and food is part of the process of providing this energy. If you do not have enough energy then your body will pull it from other areas of your body that needs it and the body can have some adverse reactions. So, please eat something before your treatment.
When you arrive at our office for the first time we will ask you to sign a paper that states that all of the information that you have provided is factual. The signature is also used for the consent to treatment as well as to be on file for insurance companies, if there is payment coming from insurance.
Clothing that you wear should be loose clothing. We do supply gowns if needed for you to change. Not all treatments require a person to disrobe and by wearing loose clothing we will be able to access different parts of the body. Another aspect of the loose clothing is for your comfort during the treatment.
