What to Expect

Whether you’re new to acupuncture, Chinese medicine, or this is simply your first visit to PRH, we look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your journey to healing.

  • Wear loose fitting clothes that can be rolled above elbows and knees. Don’t be starving or stuffed. Please arrive 15 minutes early to your first treatment. Give yourself 1.5 hours max for your first time and 60 min max for your return.


  • Check in at the reception, fill out paper work and have a cup of tea. This is a great time to turn off your phone.

  • Meet with the acupuncturist in a private consultation room to discuss all of your health concerns, goals and growth opportunities. Bring everything into the treatment room. Remove your shoes, roll up your pant legs and shirtsleeves to just above the elbows and knees and lie down in one of our comfortable recliners or tables. Grab whatever you like to get comfortable: blankets, pillows, eye pillows. Please return them after your treatment.


  • Treatment is generally 40 minutes but please be sure to let us know if you need to be up earlier, prefer a shorter treatment time or wish to stay longer. Anytime you need something, simply open your eyes or say excuse me out loud and an acupuncturists will come check on you to make sure you are comfortable.


Please note that if you book online, it might look like your appointment is only 15 or 30 minutes long, but that’s because we treat multiple patients at the same time. Your appointment will actually be about 90 minutes if you are a new patients or about 60 minutes if you are a return patient. The first 15 – 30 minutes are the time that you spend talking with your provider, and the remaining time you will spend resting.
