General Information and What to Expect

If one drinks caffeine, it should be consumed at least two hours prior to treatment to receive the full benefit of pulse assessment and the calming potential of acupuncture.
  • It is highly recommended that a patient not consume alcohol or mood altering substances 24 to 48 hours prior to, or after, an acupuncture treatment. This does not include any medical prescriptions, all medical prescription schedules should be adhered to.
  • It is suggested that one try to set aside some time after treatment to integrate the effects.
  • Appropriate covering will be provided for treatment, so you may wear any clothing you like. Please, always wear undergarments to your appointment.
  • Female patients in reproductive years should inform the practitioner if they are pregnant, lactating, attempting to become pregnant or menstruating.
  • All changes to health status, medications or circumstances in a patient’s life should be shared with the practitioner in order to ensure the most appropriate treatment for that session.
  • HIPPA compliance is in effect and all information is confidential.
  • Please arrive on time but no more than ten minutes early and call if you are running behind schedule; a grace period of ten minutes is extended for New York City life but beyond that, treatment may need to be rescheduled.
  • As much notice as possible of reschedule or cancellation is greatly appreciated.
  • A 48 hour cancellation policy is in effect, barring extenuating circumstances.
  • The best possible professional effort is made to achieve positive treatment outcomes based on the patient signs and symptoms; however, there is no guarantee of a specific outcome due to the diversity of individual human circumstances that exist in all situations.
