Please arrive 20 minutes before your appointment time so you can read and complete the initial paperwork.
You want to have eaten something within the last 1-2 hours before your appointment. It is best not to be hungry or overly full during acupuncture.
Wear clothing that can easily roll up to the elbows and knees. I practice a style of acupuncture where the points needled are below the elbows and knees to the hands and feet, and occasionally the ear/s.
Out of courtesy to others, please: wear no perfume or cologne; do not have your nails done just before acupuncture. Some people are highly sensitive to fragrances.
If you are a smoker, please refrain from smoking for one hour before your appointment. Smoking can make one more sensitive to the needles.
When you arrive, please turn off your cell phone and all other electronic devices. Doing so helps you focus on the treatment.
