If this is your first experience with acupuncture, we are so glad you chose us. Please take note of the following before you arrive.


•Prepare your new patient paperwork prior to coming in to your appointment. Either bring the completed form with you or email it to

•If you are unable to print paperwork, please arrive 20 minutes before your appointment to fill it out at the clinic. 

•Make sure you have eaten a healthy snack before your treatment.

•Try not to consume caffeine or alcohol prior to your treatment, as this will inhibit the relaxation process. We want your body in its most natural state!

•Wear loose, comfortable clothing like tank tops, t-shirts, gym shorts and stretchy pants that can be rolled above the elbows and knees.

•Do not wear any perfumes or scented deodorants out of courtesy to those who may be sensitive around you.
