What to Expect as a New Channel Wellness Patient

Office Visits typically are 45 minutes in length.  Please arrive promptly on time or a few mintues early for your appointment, and allow 1 hour in your schedule.  

Return visits may be recommended 1 to 3 times per week.  As a rule, the more severely your condition is affecting your life, and the longer you've had the problem, the more frequently you'll need treatments.  Once symptoms are relieved, treatment is less frequent.

You will likely find acupuncture brings deep relaxation as well as relief of symptoms.  For ease and comfort during acupuncture treatments, please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing that allows easy access to your elbows and knees. 

To maximize the effect of your treatments, avoid strenuous physical activity immediately before and after your appointment, and be sure you've had a light meal or snack within the 2 hours before your appointment.
