First time? No problem!
Asian Medicine practitioners look at the body as a whole, not just one disease or ailment. Your first appointment will take longer than a normal session, typically 90-120 minutes. This allows the practitioner ample time to complete a thorough health history and assess where the problem lies. Your practitioner will work with you to determine a treatment plan that is best for you.
How you can prepare for your first appointment:
Eat at least two hours prior to treatment.
Bring a current list of any medications including both prescribed and over the counter, vitamins and/or herbal supplements.
Wear loose fitting clothing. Wearing clothing that is comfortable and can be rolled up is appropriate.
Friendly Reminder: Treatments will not be performed on individuals who are intoxicated.

Cupping is an ancient healing therapy that some people use to ease pain. A provider places cups on your back, stomach, arms, legs or other parts of your body. Inside the cup, a vacuum or suction force pulls skin upward.
Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine. People have practiced cupping therapy for thousands of years.
Gua Sha Massage
In gua sha, a technician scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. They make these strokes with a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua massage tool.
Moxibustion is a type of therapy that involves burning moxa, a cone or stick made of ground mugwort leaves on or near your body's meridians and acupuncture points.
Practitioners believe that the resulting heat helps stimulate these points and improves the flow of qi (energy) in your body.
Eastern Nutritional Therapy
Food can be medicine or poison depending on our choices. Eastern food therapy takes into account one's imbalances and uses foods that balance and heal those imbalances as a "food prescription."
Eastern Nutritional Therapy also encompasses the way food is prepared and discovers how much "Qi", or energy, a food contains.
The way we eat food can affect how our body processes and utilize energy.
