Your First Visit - MARCOTTE ACUPUNCTURE $20-$40 per treatment in El Cajon, La Mesa. Santee, Lakeside, JamulYour First Visit

Instructions for your first treatment:

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing that rolls easily above your knees and elbows.
  • Eat before you come in. Getting a treatment when you're running on fumes will be less effective. I am using your body's own resources to help you heal.
  • You will have a Health History form to fill out. It will take about 15 minutes.
  • Bring a medication/supplement list if you have one.
  • Prepare to be here for 1.5 hours.
  • If you need to reschedule your appointment, please give me 24 hrs notice.

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment I will ask you to complete a comprehensive intake form. The acupuncture intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Oriental 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, we will discuss your condition, and I will examine your pulse and tongue, which are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points I choose will depend on your condition, but you can expect approximately 20 needles. Once the needles are inserted, I will leave you to lie comfortably for 45-50 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. If you decide acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is how you would like to treat your current health complaint, we will create a Treatment Plan for you.
