MEDICATIONS: If you’re taking prescription medications, kindly bring the list of medications with you for your first appointment.
TEST RESULTS: If you have recently had testing for your current or pre-existing condition, for example, Xray, CT scan, MRI, Blood Test etc. Please bring the written results with you.
CLOTHING: Wear some comfortable loose clothing.
AGE: For patients age 18 or under a parent or legal guardian must sign the consent form.
AFTER TREATMENT: Relaxing after any acupuncture treatment is suggested. Heavy exercise, sauna, hot tub and swimming is not recommended.
OTHER THERAPIES: If you are being treated by other therapist for the same condition, such as Physiotherapy, Massage therapy or Chiropractic, we recommend you plan only one treatment per day. If you do need to plan two appointments in one day, it works much better if you do the acupuncture first followed by another therapy.
