One Space Community Acupuncture
Your First Visit
For your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete paperwork. There is a one-time additional fee of $10 for your initial paperwork and consultation. We prefer cash or check, but credit/debit cards accepted.
We do not bill your insurance company directly, but will be happy to provide you with a “super bill” for reimbursement. Please let us know if you would like to receive this receipt of services.
If you would like to fill out your paperwork ahead of time, you can download the forms here:
- Health History Form (please click to download, fill out the form, print, and bring to your first visit)
On your first visit, you will receive a private consultation where your acupuncturist will review your health history form and discuss your health concerns and objectives with you. A Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) assessment will be done which includes taking your pulse, looking at your tongue, and asking a few questions to help us decide on the right course of treatment. The number of treatments recommended will depend upon your condition and your general health. Next you will be shown into the treatment room to receive your acupuncture treatment.
Please eat about one hour before your treatment, and refrain from any strenuous exercise for about one hour after your treatment; if you haven't yet eaten the day of your treatment, you may feel ill after being needled. Wear loose, comfortable clothing, and please turn off your cell phone before entering the clinic. Please don’t wear perfume or scented lotions; some patients may be sensitive to smells. Please allow approximately 90 minutes for your first visit.
On your return visit, simply check in, pay, and go into the treatment room and choose a recliner. When you are comfortable in your recliner, your acupuncturist will come over to briefly discuss with you any changes in your symptoms. They will check your pulse and tongue and your acupuncture treatment will begin.
You will relax with your needles in for anywhere from 30-90 minutes (at least 30 minutes is recommended).
The soothing atmosphere in a community clinic exists because patients create it by relaxing together. This kind of collective stillness is a rare and precious thing in our busy world. Please help us to maintain that by speaking in whispers and refrain from socializing while in the room.
