What should I expect from my first session?

Your initial visit will last 90 mins all other sessions will be 60 mins. During your initial visit in order for me to fully understand what you are experiencing, in detail, I will go over your health history, ask questions about your daily routines, and talk about what you are hoping to achieve from your treatments. After that, based on the questions you answered, I will come up with your own personal acupuncture treatment that you will receive before ending our session.
