First appointment is 90 min – two hours long

During the initial appointment, which is called the TD, or Traditional Diagnosis a full health history is taken, and other questions are asked to begin to learn about who you are, what enlivens you, and where you might be challenged.  After this conversation we move into the second part of the treatment where I will gather more physical information, take your pulses, which I do by holding your hands and reading six pulses on each wrist, and then, with plenty of warning we will then begin the first treatment.  Your comfort is of ultimate concern.  

All other follow up appointments are 50-60 minutes in length.  I will not leave the room during your appointments, which may come as a surprise to some clients.  Also, the majority of my needles go in and then come right out, which is different from other ways practicing.
