Initial Consultation/Evaluation (New patient or not-seen for three years)
Spending 15 to 45 minutes (depends on the complexity of your case) with acupuncturist, Gerry Kuo to gather information of the various aspects regarding the source of the illness. Viewing the human body as a whole, we believe each small discomfort/imbalance in the body (if untreated) could lead to many chronic diseases. After the evaluation, you can choose to have an acupuncture treatment or, if applicable, to take herbal treatments or both in order to achieve the best result.
An acupuncture treatment is a 15-minute session where acupuncture needles are inserted into the acupuncture points of your body.
An additional 15-minute session may follow immediately with adjustments to the needles. This is performed to enhance the outcome. (Optional, depending on your condition.)
TCM Herbal Treatment
After the evaluation, following the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles, a prescription of one to three herbal formula(e) will be given to the patient. A one-week supply of herbal powder or herbal pills is approximately $10 per formula. We highly recommend taking herbal supplement to enhance the effect of acupuncture treatment before your next appointment.
Follow-up Evaluation (every two weeks)
Dr. Kuo will spend 10 to 30 minutes to evaluate the effectiveness of the previous treatment(s), determining whether it is necessary to make an adjustment to find the acupuncture and herbal treatments that best suit your current condition.
