During Your First Acupuncture Visit

In this 90-minute session, we will explore together how Traditional Chinese Medicine can help you.


After reviewing your health history, medications, and current symptoms, Rebecca will perform an assessment and formulate a treatment plan. Your personalized plan of care will generally include 4 – 6 acupuncture treatments, once or twice a week. Bodywork, Chinese herbs, and dietary recommendations may be helpful as well. Your questions and concerns will be addressed.


During the treatment, Rebecca will place very thin, solid, sterile needles at specific points on your body. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle is inserted, followed by warmth or heaviness. Many patients state they do not even notice the needles being inserted. You will then rest with the needles in place for about 30 minutes, and may even drift off to sleep. Bodywork may be used to address your symptoms as well.

After the Treatment

Following the treatment, Rebecca will provide instructions for any Chinese herbal formulas, supplements, or dietary recommendations, and book your next appointment.

Follow-up Visits

This 60-minute session will continue to address your health goals. A brief discussion of any changes is followed by an acupuncture treatment, bodywork as needed, and a refill of your herbal formula. Deep relaxation during these sessions will set you on the path to healing.
