During the consultation, we will talk about your health goals and what you have tried so far. We can also answer any questions you have about Chinese medicine and how acupuncture works. If your goals and our skills are a good fit, we will make a plan on how to bring you back to health.
An initial consultation with Aleksandra is required to find out if you are a candidate for Acupuncture and other treatments we offer. She will review your medical history and If you are determined to be a candidate, we can often perform your first procedure the same day
The number of procedures is dependent upon your medical needs and Aleksandra will discuss modalities with you on your first visit to the office after your evaluation.
Once you are evaluated, the doctor will determine basedupon your clinical presentation a treatment plan and adjust as needed over the course of your care.
Please wear comfortable clothing that will give easy access to various parts of your body (abdomen, back, arms and legs), loose shorts and t-shit work well for most of our patients.
I practice many different styles of Acupuncture, all equally effective in their own right. Certain practitioners prefer one over the other, and some will use the style that they feel is most fit for the patient and condition being treated, as I do. Although Acupuncture first started in China, it has, over centuries, spread to many Asian countries and thus there are many different and distinct styles (Japanese, Korean, Classical, Traditional Chinese Medicine style etc.
