What to Expect

What to Expect at Your First Acupuncture Treatment

Your first Acupuncture treatment is an exciting step to getting your health and wellness on track! Here is what to expect at your first appointment.

Our intern and supervisory acupuncturist team are highly trained in this medicine and dedicated to your healing and comfort.

Before Your Acupuncture Appointment

Make sure you drink water before your appointment time to ensure that your body has enough energy.

It is best to wear loose-fitting clothes so our Acupuncturists can easily reach your acupuncture points.

It is also best to show up 5-10 minutes before your appointment time to fill out your patient forms.

Additional Treatments

Depending on your treatment plan, your acupuncturist/intern may suggest other forms of Chinese Medicine including gua sha (scraping therapy), cupping, moxa (heat therapy), or nutrition and herbs to assist acupuncture in your health plan. These treatments are included with an acupuncture treatment at PIHMA. Ask your acupuncturist/intern if any additional treatments may be right for you.
