What To Expect
This appointment can run between 20-40 minutes depending on your needs and condition. If you are a Fertility/Reproductive patient we encourage you to bring your partner with you to this appointment. This is your chance to see our office, meet our staff and learn how we may be able to help. We want to learn as much about you, your expectations and goals during this visit.
At your first appointment, we will:
- Listen deeply to your needs and expectations; we want to make sure you are heard!
- Explain how Reproductive Wellness may help
- Give you an initial plan and paperwork to be reviewed on your next appointment
Medical exam, Health History Evaluation and Acupuncture
1 hour Medical exam and Health History Evaluation & 45 minute Acupuncture treatment.
Our unique approach starts with an in-depth evaluation to uncover any underlying factors that may be preventing you from achieving the level of health and wellbeing desired, conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy. Before your first acupuncture treatment with us, we will review the paperwork for a complete Health History Evaluation. We will also test your urine pH and we will monitor your blood pressure. In some cases your practitioner may suggest further testing to identify any hidden imbalances or deficiencies causing any health problem. If lab work is needed it will be discussed during this visit.
Your personalized treatment plan may include:
- Chinese herbs
- A diet plan (that will promote weight loss or gain if needed)
- Lifestyle change
- Emotional support and techniques to manage stress
- Resources and referrals to assist you on your fertility journey (for fertility patients)
We will provide you with a treatment plan so you can know what to expect (approximate numbers of visits, how many times a week, health evaluations,…) In addition to acupuncture, your practitioner will check your progress, adjust your treatment, and discuss any concerns you may have.
We provide you with ongoing lifestyle and diet coaching to help you manage stress and keep on track.
Within a few weeks, you should notice significant changes in your overall sense of well-being, sleep, weight, menstrual cycles and stress.
