For your first appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork, or complete your paperwork ahead of time by downloading the two forms at the bottom of this page. The initial treatment is 90 minutes, which includes a comprehensive health history, treatment, and treatment plan. Follow up visits are 60 minutes.

Since the effects of treatments build upon each other, it is recommended to complete a series of treatment for the most effective and long-term results. The number of treatments recommended are determined based on the severity and longevity of the condition. Most patients begin with a series of 6-8 treatments, at which point we will re-evaluate and determine if additional care is necessary.

The frequency of treatments ranges from 1-3 visits per week. Acute conditions resolve much quicker with an intensive frequency, 2-3 treatments per week. Chronic conditions require a longer series of treatments and a frequency of 1 treatment per week is recommended.

Chinese Medicine is wonderful for preventive health care and for maintenance health care. In this case, patients will come in for treatment 1-2 visits per month.
