ONLINE SCHEDULING - please select Acupuncture if you are an existing patient, Acupuncture & Bodywork if you need more hands-on time,   or New Patient Acupuncture for first time appointment.  Looking forward to seeing you!

 

Housecalls are available on a limited basis, in Manhattan and in Brooklyn for the Williamsburg/Greenpoint areas.  

Initial Intake Session

Please allow 1.5 to 2 hours for your first session.  The initial session consists of a detailed intake of health history, lifestyle, exercise and dietary issues.  This is followed by a full acupuncture session.  We will establish treatment goals for the acupuncture sessions and estimate total sessions required for resolution of your symptoms.  I will make recommendations of simple activity/exercise,  dietary and herbal therapies that you can easily incorporate into your existing daily routine.  

Follow-up Sessions

Follow up sessions are generally around 1 hour in length.  They may consist of solely acupuncture or may include short periods of body work or any other of the adjunct therapies.  

Pre-session

Please come in having had a light snack in the previous two hours.  Loose comfortable clothing is optional.  Please remember to notify me of any injuries or changes in health and/or medications during the previous week, especially in the 48 hours preceding the treatment.  

Post-session

Allow several hours with limited activities and stress to allow the acupuncture treatment to settle in and fully take effect.  Jumping from acupuncture to a high-stress workday or high-intensity workout can diminish the effects of the treatment
