Patient Information Policy:
Please read this information carefully,and ask your practitioner if there is anything that you do not understand.
Whilst acupuncture has been shown to be highly effective in correcting energetic imbalances that can lead to certain conditions and to be effective in maintaining overall well-being, practitioners are required to advise that there may be some risks. Although practitioners cannot anticipate all the possible risks and complications that may arise with each individual case, you should be aware that the following side effects can occur. If there are any particular risks that apply in your case, your practitioner will discuss these with you.
What are the possible side effects of acupuncture?
- Drowsiness can occur in a small number of patients, and if affected, you are advised not to drive
- Minor bleeding or bruising can occur as a result of needling
- In less than 3% of patients, symptoms may become worse before they improve for 1-2 days following treatment. This is usually a good sign. Please let your acupuncturist know if your symptoms continue to worsen for more than 2 days.
- Light headedness or fainting can occur in certain patients, particularly in the first treatment
I am delighted to have you as a patient and look forward to providing you with the highest quality care. In order to optimize our relationship please take a minute to read our appointment policy.
Many of my patients are pleased to find out that I am usually on time. This is because a treatment room has been reserved for you. Occasionally, I as a practitioner may run a few minutes over and this is usually due to an unforeseen situation occurring with the patient previous to your treatment. If this occurs I will endeavour to let you know as soon as possible. Similarly, if you are going to be more than 5 minutes late, please call/text 417.631.7506 to let me know.
A 24 hour notice for cancelled or rescheduled appointments is necessary in order to avoid a cancellation fee which is the cost of the full treatment price. This allows me time to schedule another patient who would also benefit from treatment. This appointment policy allows us to develop a mutual consideration and respect for my time and yours.
