Before Your Treatment

  • Please eat something light at least a half hour before your treatment. It is ideal to receive acupuncture when you are not hungry nor very full. 
  • Please do not drink alcohol or caffeine prior to your appointment. 
  • Please do not wear cologne or perfume or other heavy scents to your appointment. We use smell to help diagnose you! 
  • It's best not to be in a big hurry on your way to your appointment. If you need to be late, please call at 503-548-7170 and let us know so we can make arrangements to have you arrive without undue stress. 
  • Wear comfortable, loose clothing to your appointment. We may have you change into a gown in order to reach some points. Others can be reached by simply rolling up loose sleeves or pant legs.
