Acupuncture Initial

Acupuncture Initial

This is a comprehensive 60 minute first appointment for patients interested in receiving acupuncture as the only therapy.  The Naturopathic Doctor will not discuss or prescribe any other Naturopathic treatment modalities. Upon booking your appointment, you will receive an email confirmation and a link so you can fill out a health intake form online.  You also have the option of filling out an intake form on paper in person if you prefer.  When you arrive for your appointment, our friendly reception staff will greet you and invite you to sit in our comfortable waiting room.  During the appointment your Naturopathic Doctor will review your health history, including symptoms, past diagnoses, current medications and natural supplements, allergies, diet/exercise/sleep habits and any past medical test results that you have. Your ND will perform any relevant physical exams with your informed consent, including traditional Chinese medicine tongue and pulse diagnosis, and will then give you your first acupuncture treatment. Recommendations for future treatments, including the number of sessions required and their frequency, will be made. Follow up visits should be booked as either “Private Acupuncture Follow Up” or “Community Acupuncture Follow Up” and can be arranged by calling or booking online.

You will receive an acupuncture treatment after a brief check in with your Naturopathic Doctor, including a Traditional Chinese Medicine tongue and pulse assessment.
