Your First Visit - MARCOTTE ACUPUNCTURE $40-60 sliding scale 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.
  • Please visit the Make An Appointment page and click on the Initial Intake Form link. Print it, fill it out and bring it with you. It will take about 15 minutes to fill out.
  • Bring a medication/supplement list if you have one.
  • Prepare to be here for 1.5 hours.
  • Text me when you are parked and wait for me to give you the ok to come into the office.
  • Please have your mask with you. If you are fully vaccinated, it is my request that you wear your mask in the common areas. It is now proven we can spread the variants to others, whether we know it or not. We are wearing our masks to protect the un-vaccinated, including children.
  • Bring your vaccination card with you.
  • If you are un or partially vaccinated, a mask is required in the treatment areas.
  • If you need to reschedule your appointment, please give me 24 hrs notice.

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.
