Your First Visit

Please come to your visit in loose clothing and make sure that you've had something small to eat before your treatment.

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment you will be asked to complete a comprehensive intake form. The intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of both acupuncture and chiropractic medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.

After reviewing your intake form, Dr. Langer will discuss your condition, and give a thorough and comprehensive examination. At this point, you will discuss your treatment plan, whether you prefer acupuncture, chiropractic, or both. Chiropractic care will be gentle and conservative, and you can expect extensive muscle work to ensure quick and lasting results. For acupuncture, your tongue and pulse will be examined, and will determine where the needles will be inserted. Once the needles are inserted, you will be able to lie comfortably for 20-30 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.
