FORMS: Please download the following forms: Informed Consent.doc and Health History.doc and complete them before the first visit. The forms can be filled out and emailed back to firstname.lastname@example.org
SPACE: The beauty of house calls is that you can receive acupunture in the comfort of you own home. I have a massage table that I can bring with me if needed. However, most of my clients choose to be treated on a couch or bed instead.
WHAT TO WEAR: Dress comfortably. I recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing that can be rolled up above the knees and elbows to allow access to acupuncture points.
:: during your visit ::
WHAT TO EXPECT?: The initial acupuncture visit lasts 1.5 hours and follow up visits are approximately one hour. We will begin the session with an intake that will help me get a holistic picture and better customize your treatment. Then we will begin the acupuncture treatment during which the needles are gently inserted and you can rest for 20-30 minutes.
Depending on your individual needs, the first set of needles may be followed up with another treatment on the other side of the body, acupressure, massage, cupping, gua sha, or moxa. Many acupuncture treatments often include a combination of a few modalities.
:: after your visit ::
TREATMENT PLAN: Most conditions require a series of treatments to fully address the issue. Because each person and condition is different, treatment plans and recommendations vary. In most cases, people begin with weekly treatments and taper down to treatment every other week or as needed.
Acupuncture is a very effective method of preventive health. Most clients work with me to maintain health on a regular basis instead of waiting to seek treatment after an issue arises. Scheduling standing appointments allows us to incorporate health into your regular routine.
SELF-MAINTENANCE: Clients are often provided with additional exercises and tips to continue between appointments. I have found that continued self-maintenance between appointments facilitates greater and longer-lasting results.

Miranda is such an incredible listener and the best part is – she is intuitive to your symptoms and health issues. Think, psychic but along the lines of what may be bothering you or anticipating something that could happen like a cold based on a few questions or her skilled training. I highly recommend acupuncture to anyone who is willing to give it a try. I simply can’t live without it now!
