Consultation Room

The licensed acupuncturist, Sheila Condit L.Ac., will discuss your wellness concerns and goals, feel your radial pulses for a Medical Pulse Diagnosis, and discuss the diagnosis and propose a treatment strategy. If you are having a treatment she will brief you on your session, then you will be directed to the treatment den to select a recliner.

If you are waiting for Chinese Medicine you can return to the reception area and it will be brought to the front desk.

Plan on being in the clinic 60 minutes for your first visit. Following treatments may not be as long, depending upon your needs. Many people relax into a restful sleep during acupuncture. If you need to wake at a certain time, let us know and we will come and remove your needles.
