An initial appointment lasts around 90 minutes. I'll talk over your paperwork with you and we'll discuss what brought you in and address any questions or concerns you may have. Then I usually move on to, "listen" to your pulse and palpate acupuncture channels and areas of concern for diagnostic evaluation. Finally, we proceed with whatever treatment modalities are most highly indicated. This may involve Tui Na (East Asian bodywork), cupping, guasha (scraping) or moxibustion, in addition to acupuncture, scalp acupuncture and electro-acupuncture. 

"When I do acupuncture, the client doesn't always fall asleep, but when they do... I know it was a good treatment!" Lol, Tom

- this is because often part of my job is to "reset" the nervous system to a restful, healing, parasympathetic state
