Your first visit to Acupuncture @The River of Life Wellness Center will be a relaxing and rewarding experience.   During the first weeks of you will notice the subtle yet relaxing and beneficial outcomes from each treatment. The end result each time is an investment in your future health and longevity.
Dana recommends wearing loose, comfortable clothing which will allow you a comfortable treatment. It is very helpful if you are able to eat fruit or a snack about thirty minutes before your appointment. Also, we ask that you refrain from drinking alcohol the day of your treatment  and to limit exercise for the remainder of the treatment day.

Upon the completion of each session, Dana will discuss future treatment goals with you based on your condition, with an eye on always making choices in your life for improved health.

Dana feels if each of her patients would do three things daily will greatly improve the outcome – stay well hydrated-drink lots of water, rest regular hours  and finally breathe – take time to focus your attention of your breath – focus to breath in with the diaphragm and then breath out be contracting the abdomen.

Your first visit usually lasts 75 minutes. Follow up visits are approximately one hour.
