Your First Visit with Nigel Bauer
Nigel, our licensed acupuncturist, will welcome you and go over an intake form with you when you arrive. You can also find this form on our website if you’d prefer to fill it out prior to your appointment. Nigel will discuss your health history with you to better meet your needs. You’ll receive some reading material to learn more about what we do.
Nigel starts by palpating the area you’re having problems with. You’ll be able to ask any questions before we begin. This first visit will take about 90 minutes including paperwork and a full treatment session.
On your next visits, you’ll meet Nigel to discuss how you’ve been feeling. Then, you’ll have a regular treatment session lasting about one hour. We find that our patients see great relief within the first three visits.
How Does It Feel?
Acupuncture is not painful and there is very little discomfort involved. If you do feel anything, it will feel similar to a mosquito bite. In places where you have a lot of tension it may be more uncomfortable, but it should not be painful.
Services to Complement Your Care
To complement your acupuncture, Nigel has other tools he may use when needed. You’ll fully discuss them before starting so you’ll know why they’re beneficial to you. These therapies include:
- Herbal remedies
- Massage therapy
- Nutritional advice
- Qi Beauty Facial Treatments
