What to Expect 

First Visits the patinet can expect to spend approximately 1.5 hours with Nicole.  Together we will go over your comprehensive health history in detail, I will observe your pulse, tongue, and abdomen, come to a diagnosis, and discuss your treatment plan options.  You will receive your first acupuncture treatment that day and discuss other treatment modalities that may be beneficial, which may include moxibustion, cupping, or medicinal teas.

Follow up visits typically last 1 hour.  Each visit I will re-evaluate your presenting symptoms, objective signs, and make changes as your presentation evolves.
