7 PREP POINTS in COMMUNITY STYLE ACUPUNCTURE


1. Wear loose clothing that can be rolled up to the elbows and knees to allow the practitioner to access the choice acupuncture points.

2. Do not wear any perfume, cologne, oils or scented lotions Many of our patients are allergic or sensitive to smells.

3. Complete the form below (click link) as your required paperwork before your appointment time. You have 3 ways to accomplish this: Either arrive 5 minutes early OR fill out your paperwork before your appointment and bring it with you OR fill it out online and email to the practitioner.

4. Make yourself comfortable. Bring whatever you need from home to make yourself comfortable during treatment. Items such as earplugs or relaxing music (through headphones) may be especially helpful if snoring or other community sounds are prone to disturb you. There could be up to 5 other people getting treated at the same time, spaciously spaced apart, in the same room.

5. Use the restroom BEFORE your appointed time, and be prepared to have your needles retained for 30 minutes. During this time, your acupuncturist will be taking care of those who are already in the room as well as those who will enter after your treatment begins.

6. Come with already digested food in your stomach before treatment, so our treatment doesn't have to compete with your digestion for the circulation of energy.

7. Cancellations: We require 24 hours notice for cancellations.


We need community to keep the community style going, so thank you for your participation!
