Preparing For Your First Treatment

Your first appointment at Waterfront Acupuncture + Wellness will be your longest (up to 90 minutes), as we will extensively discuss your medical history and lifestyle to prepare a treatment plan that’s right for you. Expect about 20-30 minutes of conversation followed by your first treatment. All follow-up treatments will take no longer than one hour. We will briefly discuss your progress since your last visit before your treatment begins.

  • Wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. For most treatments we will need access up to your knees and elbows. Feel free to bring a change of clothes with you.

  • Eat a light meal or snack and be sure you’re hydrated before treatments. Excessive hunger or thirst may lead to dizziness or fatigue, and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment.

  • Familiarize yourself with medications or supplements you are taking before your treatment. A written list of names and dosage information is very helpful.
