New Patients

Welcome to Monarch Acupuncture & Wellness

WE’RE HONORED TO BE PART OF YOUR WELLNESS TEAM

You can download our new patient paperwork here. Please bring this with document with you to your first visit. Or, if you prefer, please arrive 20 minutes prior to your first appointment to complete paperwork in our office.

Getting to know you

Your first visit is 90 minutes, allowing plenty of time for your acupuncturist to to get to know you and to learn about how your body functions. During this time you can also ask us questions and show us any relevant lab work.

At each treatment, your acupuncturist will examine your pulse and observe your tongue, which is an integral part of the Chinese medicine diagnostic system. Think of it as an ancient “x-ray” that gives us a lot of important information about what’s happening under the surface.

We allow plenty of time to walk you through each step of the process, so that you feel informed, safe, and completely relaxed.

YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

Please arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment so you’ll have time to fill out paperwork and settle in (if you’d like to fill your paperwork out in advance, you can find the form here).

You can help yourself to tea or water and relax in our comfortable waiting room. Your acupuncturist will greet you there and bring you into a treatment room to speak privately. No special clothing is necessary. If you need to change, you will be covered throughout your treatment.

ACUPUNCTURE: WHAT TO EXPECT

Acupuncture needles are tiny! About the size of a human hair. Sterile, stainless steel, single use needles will be inserted gently, resulting in sensations that can include mild tingling, heaviness, or perception of temperature change. Frequently there is little to no sensation at all. If your acupuncturist wants to use other therapies, such as cupping, moxibustion, or tui na, these will be explained to you in detail.

You will be left to rest for approximately 25 minutes, and most people become deeply relaxed or fall asleep (also known as a “needle nap”!).
