What to Expect
All initial treatments at Sacred Needle Acupuncture & Healing Arts are 90 minutes long. This gives us enough time to do a thorough health history, listen to your health concerns, create an effective treatment plan and provide an acupuncture treatment.
If this is your first time ever experiencing any type of acupuncture, it's normal to feel a little nervous. You might want to check out the Frequently Asked Questions, or feel free to ask me any questions you might have during the session. During your session, I'm happy to talk you through every step of the treatment so you feel comfortable and there are no surprises.
Make sure that you wear (or bring) comfortable clothes to your session. Athleisure or loose-fitting clothing are great, as these make evaluation, stretching, and treatment easier. If there is a particular area you want treated, plan ahead for how you can feel comfortably clothed while ensuring that I can still reach this area for evaluation and treatment.
Prior to your first session, you will need to complete some paperwork. Read more about paperwork below.
You are welcome to complete your paperwork online before your first session. You will be prompted to complete this paperwork when you schedule your session online.
If you prefer to complete the paperwork in-person, please come to the clinic 15 minutes before your initial treatment so you'll have time to work on this while you decompress with a cup of tea. ☕
You may be wondering what acupuncture is used for, or the most common question I get is, "Will it hurt?" (Short answer: not really!) You can find the answers to these questions and more on the Frequently Asked Questions page.
