What to Expect from Your First Visit

People have many misconceptions about what acupuncture is. We insure you’re completely comfortable with your treatment.

As a new patient, you have many questions. Plan on being with us for 2 hours.

For your first treatment we set aside about two hours. This allows us to resolve a detailed and holistic picture of your health, and understand your health goals and values. We ask that you please arrive on time so that we are able to spend the maximum amount of time on your intake and treatment. Except in special circumstances, follow-up treatments will normally take 45 minutes.

By dressing in comfortable loose-fitting clothing you can often reduce the amount of disrobing or reconfiguration you may have to do. Please be assured that no matter how you dress, your privacy and dignity will always be respected.

For the best experience we highly recommend all new patients print and fill out the initial forms for new patients in advance. This will allow for a more relaxed pace for your intake and treatment process, and for optimal results.

Below you’ll find important information and forms. This information is for you if you’re a first time patients at our clinic.

If you have more questions, feel free to call us at 919-228-8448 or email info [at] bb-acu [dot] com. We’re happy to answer any and all questions that you may have about acupuncture or the process.

Do you know that we’re currently offering free thirty minute face-to-face consultations? Call 919-228-8448 or use our online scheduling system to take advantage.

“I came to Jon-Erik with a sports related rotator cuff issue. The problem was compounded with a looming competition the following weekend that I just could not miss. Having never tried acupuncture before I didn’t know what to expect, and was admittedly skeptical. He listened to me, and was incredibly gentle, and caring. The treatment was a bit scary for me, but he calmed my fears, and got me through it. On the drive home, I realized I had regained some movement in my shoulder, and by the next morning, I felt even better. I’m 100% convinced that Jon is very talented, and practically performed a miracle in the office. Thank-you!”

“I have gotten my daughter back. Today was her 7th treatment and her improvement from debilitating migraines has been evident for 3 weeks now. I completely recommend him. He has done what traditional medicine couldn’t do.”
