If this is your first visit with our doctors or therapists, they will ask you some questions. They need to make sure there aren’t any health conditions present that rule out having treatment, discover what your needs and expectations are, and determine what
techniques to use and how to structure the session.
Before the session begins, the doctor or therapist may offer some advice that will improve the effectiveness of your treatment.
Next you will be asked to remove your clothing. The doctor or therapist will leave the room. You should take off only as much as you are comfortable removing. A sheet or towel is provided for draping during your treatment.
They will uncover only the part of the body being treated, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.
The treatment takes place on a padded table. The doctor or therapist will tell you what position to lie in on the table.
Expect a peaceful and comfrotable environment for the treatment. The doctor or therapist may play traditional Chinese music during the session. If you don’t like music playing, just ask them to lower the volume or turn the music off.
They may use oil, lotion, heat, sterile needles, hot stones, and/or glass cups.
Depending on your needs, he or she will treat either the full body or only specific areas that need attention. If there is anything that does not feel comfortable you have the right to ask them to stop.
After your first session is finished, your doctor or therapist will sit down with you and make a treatment plan and schedule you for future visits. The usual length of the session is from 1 to 2 hours.
Please contact us at 608.240.1600, 24 hours in advance if you need to change your appointment.
Enjoy the benefits of your treatment!
