During the initial 90-minute appointment, I take a thorough health history before we begin treatment. I then insert ultra-thin, single-use, disposable needles into points on the body that correlate with the pattern I observe. There may be a brief, slight sensation upon insertion of the needles, which often subsides into a pleasant state of relaxation. You will be able to rest with the needles for about 30 minutes. If appropriate, I may also treat with cupping, gua sha, or moxibustion.
