What is an Acupuncture Health Consultation?
An acupuncture health consultation is an initial appointment where our practitioner, David, conducts an extensive evaluation of your health and medical history. The consultation is an integral aspect of holistic medicine and aims to understand all facets of your health and well-being. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your primary concerns, symptoms, and any specific issues you wish to address through acupuncture treatment.
What Happens During an Acupuncture Health Consultation?
Your acupuncture health consultation at Accurate Acupuncture involves several key steps:
- Discussion of Medical History: You will discuss your medical history and any current health concerns. David will ask a range of questions about your symptoms, focusing on those related to your main complaint while often extending beyond that. Feel free to refrain from answering any questions that cause discomfort.
- Physical Assessment: David will observe your general appearance, assess your pulse, and examine your tongue. These assessments help diagnose your specific issue and determine the most appropriate treatment.
- Diagnosis and Treatment Plan: After discussing his diagnosis, David will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. He will explain the proposed treatment, including the frequency and duration of sessions.
- Treatment Process: If you agree to the recommended treatment plan, the treatment process will begin. Depending on the treatment, this may involve acupuncture, herbal remedies, or other modalities.
The entire consultation lasts approximately an hour, making your first session’s duration vary from 90 minutes to two hours.
Do I Need to Prepare Anything for the Consultation?
You do not need to prepare any specific documents for the consultation. However, it can be helpful to have a general understanding of your medical history, including any previous diagnoses, treatments, and medications. It’s also a good idea to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for the consultation and treatment.
