FAQ – Paperwork

As with a visit to any medical professional,  there will be a bit of paperwork to complete.  I try to keep this as simple as possible.  At the time that you make an appointment for your initial visit I will send you a packet with information booklets about acupuncture and…

FAQ – What Happens in an Initial Visit?

I ask for a two-hour block of time because there is a lot of ground to cover.  We will go through a detailed intake, pulse and tongue diagnosis and your first acupuncture treatment.  Be sure to NOT brush your tongue beforehand nor eat anything which discolors the mouth an hour…

FAQ – What does Acupuncture Cost?

Because of the time involved,  your Initial Visit which lasts two hours costs a flat rate of $110.  Following visits cost $75 and run an hour and a quarter.  I charge by the session, not by how many modalities I use.  So I may add heat,  linements ,  massage,  salves, …

FAQ – Post Acupuncture Care

Please refrain from heavy exercise,  sexual activity and the consumption of alcohol or recreational drugs within 6  hours of treatment,  as they will interfere with its  effectiveness.  Please refrain from entering a shower,  Jacuzzi, sauna or pool for 6 hours after treatment.  Let it set like Jell-O.  In the next…

FAQ – Is Acupuncture Safe?

FAQ – Time

After your Initial visit,  future sessions run about an hour and a quarter.  Please plan to be on time so that you get the most use of your time.  When people are very tardy,  it is not fair to punish the patient who comes next.  I know traffic happens.  Thank…

Nutritional Counseling

Food is the first line of medicine. In Chinese Medicine most foods are associated with one of the Five Elements ( Wood, Fire, Earth, Water and Metal), and as such, have energetic properties which help alleviate certain conditions. These may vary according to the weather. I often suggest foods which…

Ying Yang: Law of Unity and Balance

You’ve all seen it, the cool symbol for yin and yang, the dynamic curve in a circle with the contrasting dots, but many people don’t realize what the symbol means. We use it to illustrate correspondences in nature and in health diagnosis. The line separating the yin and yang is…

Five Elements of Nature

Chinese Medicine had a rich and sophisticated body of medical theory based on the Daoist concepts of Five Elements of nature: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The five Elements described in this theory are simply another way (besides Yin-Yang) of describing human health as a reflection of the natural…

The Art of Chinese Pulse Diagnosis

When a doctor or nurse takes your pulse by placing two fingers on your wrist, they are assessing your heart’s health by counting the number of beats per minute and noticing if you have a regular or irregular heart rate. But in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), pulse reading is far…

Facial Rejuvenation
