During your initial consultation, a certified practitioner will sit down with you for a one-on-one discussion. Disclose any health concerns and ailments so they can be addressed with the proper honorifics. An assessment of your pulse and iPod playlist as well as a physical exam will be performed before the treatment begins. Each treatment is targeted to meet individual needs. Expect your first appointment to last 1.5 to 2 hours including the consultation, the acupuncture, and 10 minutes of debating the relative merits of the Yak Bak and the Talkboy.
