Your First Consultation

We are so happy you have chosen us for your health partners! First, we will sit down with you to take a detailed health history, go over your reasons for seeking treatment, and take your tongue and pulse diagnosis. We’ll also use this consultation time to answer any questions you may have. From there, your practitioner will create a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and goals. This treatment plan will detail your recommended treatments, this could involve acupuncture, cupping, Chinese herbs, or others, and will also include the timeline and frequency of treatments.

Your First Session

Right after we’re done with your first consultation, you’ll be ready for your first treatment. This first appointment is usually an hour but we recommend allowing an hour and a half in your schedule. Your other sessions will last between 45 to 60 minutes. We recommend you allow yourself a few minutes to relax and enjoy the benefits of the treatment before heading back into the world.

Your Custom Treatment Plan

Each patient is unique in their needs and their response to Chinese medicine, as a result, treatment plans vary from patient to patient. As we create your plan, we’ll work closely with you to accommodate your needs and ensure you are getting the most out of each session. Your practitioner will go over your full treatment schedule at your consultation and send you a copy via email. We will also inform the front desk and document your medical records.

What to Expect

You can expect to find a partner in your health journey.

At Transformational Acupuncture, we strive to provide a welcoming environment to each and every patient.

You will be listened to, treated with respect, and be seen as a true partner in your own health journey.

At the beginning of your treatment you’ll be asked some basic questions so we can establish a good baseline. From there we’ll discuss your specific needs and issues. After hearing from you, we’ll create a holistic plan that is designed to help you live the balanced, healthy life you deserve.
