If you are new to acupuncture or simply new to Wood Rabbit Acupuncture, here are some helpful forms and information to make your visit go smoothly.
TO PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT:
Please arrive at the clinic wearing loose-fitting, comfortable clothes. Be sure to have eaten earlier the same day, but avoid heavy or greasy foods.
Most patients move into a deep state of relaxation during the treatment as the body harmonizes. Try to leave yourself some time after the treatment to continue to relax and drink plenty of water in the hours after a treatment.
Some patients notice immediate effects while others see changes over the course of a few days. Be sure to pay attention so that you can report back to your practitioner during the following visit.
As a holistic medical modality, acupuncture treats the whole person. Prior to your initial visit, you will fill out a thorough health history form. Your initial exam will include a comprehensive verbal intake in order for your practitioner to identify and assess symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle. Your acupuncturist might also check your pulse and examine your tongue.
Follow-up treatments last anywhere from 45-60 minutes and are tailored specifically to the needs and sensitivities of each patient.
I value your time and do my best to begin treatments at the scheduled appointment time. Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to ensure that your appointment begins on time and that we will be able to fully take advantage of your allotted time.
FORMS FOR YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT:
In order to maximize the time spent during your appointment on your treatment, it is useful to print and fill out our New Patient forms ahead of time and bring them with you to your appointment. If you are unable to do so, please allow extra time prior to your appointment to fill them out at our office.

CANCELLATION & LATE ARRIVALS POLICY:
We have a firm 24 hour cancellation policy. If you do not cancel your appointment within 24 hours of your scheduled time, a $50 missed appointment fee applies.
Arriving more than 15 minutes past your scheduled appointment time will not allow sufficient time for treatment and results in a missed appointment fee.
