We invite you to use our online schedule whether you are a new or established patient. Once you create your account, you will be prompted to complete our intake forms before your visit. For questions please email or call us: 650-948-9642 email@example.com. We are not in network with any insurance plans.
If you have had recent lab testing or imaging pertinent to your care, please bring those reports with you as well.
We typically see clients one to two times per week for 2 to12 weeks or more. Frequency varies based on each client's needs.
Choosing to take care of yourself is a big part of your over all well-being. A healthy lifestyle includes committing to eating well, moving your body/exercising, and incorporating daily practices to counteract stress. Other supportive services, such as chiropractic, massage, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and visits to your medical doctor are also part of your self-care routine. Acupuncture is a positive addition to each of these, often providing benefits your other supportive service providers will notice as well.
We will review your medical history, lab reports, diet and exercise habits, discuss your health concerns and goals, feel your wrist pulses, look at your tongue, and answer any questions you have before you receive acupuncture. Hair-thin, sterile, single-use disposable needles are inserted as you rest comfortably for thirty to forty five minutes. Most people feel incredibly relaxed during and after acupuncture.
Please have something to eat before our sessions. If you do high intensity exercise daily, it's best to do this before acupuncture. Please don't use alcohol or recreational drugs before our sessions.
We prescribe herbal medicine and nutritional supplements, and explain the benefit you can expect from adding it to your treatment plan. We may also recommend/provide gua sha, myofascial therapy, cupping, electro-acupuncture, acupressure, or moxa, and we will always explain the process to you.
We will briefly discuss your progress, then you will receive acupuncture and/or one of the modalities mentioned above. Your provider will make additional recommendations as needed, and compose your herbal formula.
