What to expect with your FIRST VISIT

It’s natural to have some apprehension about acupuncture and what to expect during your visit if you’ve never experienced acupuncture before. Most patients feel that way. Don’t worry – we will help ease any fears and walk you through the process step by step. Once you experience Modern Acupuncture®, you will only regret not coming in sooner. Below describes what will occur during your first visit and some of our most frequently asked questions.

Before your SESSION

Once you arrive at the clinic, the Zen Advisor will check you in for your session and you will complete the Patient History forms (if you didn’t complete them online), and you will watch a brief introduction video about acupuncture at Modern Acupuncture.

You’re so close to experiencing Zen!

Come in. Lean back in our zero-gravity massage chairs. Relax. Exhale. Enjoy. Leave revitalized.

During your SESSION

Next, the Zen Advisor will walk you to the Zen Lounge and direct you to your relaxation station, where you will sit in a zero-gravity, heated massage recliner and start to relax. The licensed acupuncturist will discuss your wellness concerns, brief you on your acupuncture session, and provide treatment. You don’t have to do a thing except enjoy as you watch beautiful nature scenes from all over the world on our big screen televisions.

Many of our patients fall asleep during treatment because they are so relaxed.

After your SESSION

The licensed acupuncturist will answer your questions, provide you with a treatment plan, and escort you out of the Zen Lounge to the Zen Advisor. You will receive a complimentary delicious tea and the Zen Advisor will discuss the most affordable approach to follow your treatment plan and reach your health goals.

We want to help you discover the best version of yourself.

We believe that acupuncture should be a convenient and approachable part of everyday life. Our treatment plans are flexible, so you can stop in on your schedule.
