What you need to know before, during and after your treatment

Before your treatment

  • To prepare for your treatment, it's a good idea to eat something, preferably nutritious.
  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that can be rolled up above the knees and elbows.
  • Come in 15 minutes before your first session to complete your intake paperwork.
  • Feel free to ask your acupuncturist any questions you may have before your treatment - and anytime during the treatment.

During your treatment

  • To help you budget your time, for your initial acupuncture session you can expect to be at Healing Foundations for up to 90 minutes to include the intake process.  
  • Follow up acupuncture treatments are 45-60 minutes.
  • Acupuncture treatments may include modalities such as electrical stimulation, cupping or gua sha.
  • Herbal and Chinese nutritional counseling can be done in conjunction with your treatments or as separate sessions.

After your treatment

  • Please follow through with your treatment plan.
  • To maximize benefits and promote healing, be consistent with your appointments.
  • Frequency of treatments depends not only on the length and severity of the condition but also on how you respond to the treatment.
