  2. Once you have narrowed your search, it is often helpful to schedule an initial consultation with an acupuncturist to begin to feel them out.  It has been found that the results of treatment at any health care facility are not only dependent on the care provided, but also how comfortable the patient feels around the treating acupuncturist.  During the interview, test the waters to see how comfortable you feel with the acupuncturist.  Pay attention to see if they are really listening to your concerns or problems.  If they are truly engaged in your conversation they should answer your questions fully and not show a tendency to change the subject.

"People will ask me about my experience with acupuncture and I love telling them about it. For regular shots I have to look away, but for the acupuncture needles I come in here with total trust. Acupuncture is working great, but more importantly I ‘m learning so many things about food, what to eat and really how to be healthy."

"I started acupuncture in August and have had 25% improvement since the initial intake. Because of my injuries, I missed 8 months of karate with my kids, but now I am going back to classes at nearly full capacity. I was willing to try anything for pain, and this has helped immensely, and I’m thankful for that."

"You are making a difference in my life- in the comfort levels I’m achieving and things I’m able to do. I don’t understand the “hows and whys” of acupuncture, but I’m grateful each day for your knowledge, skills, care, and compassion. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! You’re making my life much easier!"
