It depends on the person. We prefer you spread out these types of treatments with a few days in between. That being said if you are not focused on treating an acute condition you may do these treatments back to back for a day of total bliss.
You may resume your normal activities after an acupuncture treatment. We ask that you don’t do anything out of the ordinary of your typical routine and to listen to your body if it’s telling you to take it easy or go to bed earlier than normal.
Unfortunately at this time Medicare/Medicaid/Tricare don’t cover acupuncture.
It’s best if you wear loose fitting clothes to your acupuncture appointment. You may not have to remove your clothing depending on what we are treating to your level of comfort. We do have sheets to cover you up if it’s required for you to remove your clothing during a session to treat your condition.
Your first appointment will be 60- 80 minutes and follow up appointments will be 40-60 minutes depending on the complexity of the case and the modalities utilized.
Tuina is a manual therapy—a kind of Chinese style massage. We often use this to treat painful conditions. There are special protocols of “tuina” that we use for infants and children in lieu of acupuncture needles. Samantha is the practitioner in our office that works with children. Typically best for kids under 4.
