How to Prepare for Your First Visit
(If you have not received your Intake Form within 24 hours of scheduling your appointment online, or have any questions regarding scheduling or treatment, please contact Kayleigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
During your consultation, your acupuncturist will take a detailed health history to get to know about you and your health concerns. Additionally, your acupuncturist will perform a physical exam and use diagnostic tools, such as looking at your tongue and feeling your pulse, to determine the root cause of your condition(s). During your consultation, your acupuncturist will go over what to expect from your acupuncture treatment, any risks involved, and discuss your treatment plan. Please be sure to voice any questions or concerns you may have regarding acupuncture in general and your health!
Make the Most of Your Treatments:
- Make sure you eat something before your treatment, but not a large meal.
- Wear loose fitting and comfortable clothes (gowns are available if needed).
- Refrain from overexertion for at least 6 hours after your treatment.
- Drink plenty of water after your treatments.
- Follow your treatment plan, and keep your appointments. Acupuncture has a cumulative effect; each treatment builds on the previous one.
Your acupuncturist may discuss certain lifestyle and dietary changes during your course of treatment that are specific to your underlying imbalances and condition. To see the best results, please follow these guidelines as best you can, and ask for help when needed! Consistency is key!
It is important to remember that Acupuncture is not an instant fix. We are guiding your body to heal itself; sometimes this process is quick, sometimes it is gradual. Results depend on how chronic your condition is, your overall health, and your willingness to heal.
We look forward to helping you feel your best, and achieve optimal wellness through Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine!
It’s actually difficult to remember all the cures I’ve received from Kayleigh Callan, LAc -acupuncturist extraordinaire! I’ve been seeing her for over a year and a half because my husband had such great results. I am a 61-year- old physically active woman; I thought my body was just wearing down and there wasn’t much I could do about it. My main complaints involved my stiff, sore neck and shoulders. I could not move my head more than 45 degrees so looking over my shoulder meant awkwardly moving my upper body. After only a month of weekly treatments, my range of motion was drastically improved and the pain was gone. I also had pain in my elbow that I lived with all day and would wake me up at night. When I told Kayleigh about it, she went to work on her next miracle cure. It is so completely gone that I have to be reminded which arm used to hurt me! A very sore wrist is now almost completely pain free. As you can read in Kayleigh’s professional bio, she specializes in orthopedics but her acupuncture practice goes well beyond that area. In addition to fixing my aches and pains, Kayleigh Callan routinely takes stock of my entire condition at each visit. Not one to usually complain, I have come to understand that she needs to know what is going on in my life and body and so I tell all – and she works on improving the situation at hand. Sleep problems, stress problems, digestion are discussed and addressed with professionalism and a very caring nature. She has even improved a “balding” eyebrow!! Her understanding of how the body works in such an interconnected way is amazing and effective. I am a true fan of Kayleigh Callan and her practice of certified acupuncture. I urge anyone who experiencing medical or emotional symptoms to seek her out. You won’t be disappointed.
