The initial assessment is where we get to know each other, and this is what you can expect:


  • We will ask you A LOT of Questions - this knowledge will help us assess your overall health

  • The questions will relate to your current symptoms, past treatments, patient and family medical history, diet, digestive system, sleeping patterns and emotional health

  • Your pulse will be taken on both wrists

  • We will look at your tongue

  • After this, all the data will be pulled together to come up with a treatment plan

  • We will discuss your treatment options, and chose the most appropriate treatment plan for you

  • You will receive your first treatment (i.e., acupuncture and/or cupping)

  • Write down and bring any questions you have, as we are here to help you

  • For a proper tongue diagnosis:

    • Avoid brushing your tongue before treatment

    • Try not to consume beverages that may stain your tongue, such as coffee and candies

  • Do not eat large meals just before or after your visit, however, a small snack is recommended

  • Be honest when answering questions, all answers are confidential and aide in your treatment

  • Our treatment sessions are minimally 30 minutes in length so please use the bathroom prior

  • Do not consume alcoholic beverages before or after treatment

  • Slowly get up from the table as you could feel slightly light-headed and/or dizzy

  • DRINK PLENTY WARM to HOT WATER to help eliminate toxins out of the body

  • Avoid using Ice and Cold packs as they will slow the progress made during the treatment

  • We recommend that you try to relax after so you can feel the whole benefit of each treatment

  • Pay attention to your Emotions – some people can feel a bit more emotional or more sensitive after so be kind to yourself and allow any emotions to come up so it can then be released

  • Between visits, take note of any changes that may have occurred, so you can report back to your acupuncturist at your next appointment
