Appointment, Duration and Payment
Pandemic specific notice: If it is okay with you, we ask: 1. wear your mask (mouth and nose well
covered) throughout the whole session. 2. we tried to set appt so you will encounter the fewest possible
people for your benefit. We are not taking walk in for this reason. 3. if you have some of covin-19
conditions, or contacted someone with the conditions or with positive test in the past 14 days, please
call hospital or your doctor's office and cancel the appt.
Please arrive 5 minutes earlier to your appointment. If you have current condition related X-ray films or
report, or MRI report you may bring them with you. For cancer patients, please bring your doctor's letter
(suggest or prescribe or mention for acupuncture treatment) and blood test reports(see details below).
It is not good time to come for acupuncture if the patient is extremely weak, or newly suffering flu, covin-
19, or easy to bleed for a long time after injection/injury/brush teeth, or is very prone to infections. Please
contact us to discuss or reschedule before you come.
In life threatening conditions you should go emergency room in a hospital or call 911.
If your conditions are severe or walk unstable or have conditions that affect driving, you will need a
companion come with you. If patient is under 18 years old, a relatives or authorized adult of the patient
should come together.
Usually the first visit is the longest in order to allow for a complete history taking and exam - typically 40-
50 minutes. (a few minutes shorter during the Pandemic)
Fee for the initial acupuncture treatment: $82.
Before and after receiving an acupuncture treatment
To avoid light-headaches or dizziness during or after treatment session, please do not arrive to your
appointment with hungry, or right after a large meal. You could keep your routine diet. Try to eat
something little bit before you leaving from your office or home if your initial appointment is in late
afternoon (such as 5 pm or 6 pm). Also try to avoid excessively fatigued or emotionally upset or shortly
after sex, before your treatment.
For better reading of your tongue, please do not brush your tongue on the day of your appointment, not
eat or drink anything that may change the color of your tongue within 3 hours prior to your appointment.
It is recommended to wear loose and comfortable clothes. For some patients (for example, pain in
certain area), better to wear appropriate clothes to make the upper back or middle back or shoulder or
leg area easy to access.
Plan your activities so that after the treatment you can get some rest, or at least not have to be working at
top performance. This is especially important for the first few visits for some patients.
If you are suffering cancer or had chemotherapy or radiotherapy within two years
1.We will need a letter from one of your doctors that states that the acupuncture treatment is in
conjunction with a treatment program/plan prescribed by the doctor, and showing the patient is under
that active care of a medical doctor.
2.We will need your most recent blood test report.
