All patients check in with the receptionist upon arrival.
At this time new patient's complete the Health History forms, if you haven't already completed them.
The receptionist will confirm your contact information, and prepare your patient folder. You will then be directed to the consultation room where you pass your patient folder to your acupuncturist.
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 a treatment room to select a table or 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.
Pick up a herbal formula or scheduling future appointments at the reception desk. Our receptionist informs patients on how to take Chinese Medicine, and provides handouts to take home.
