What to Expect
Creating the Right Treatment Plan for You
Your path to better health begins the moment you reach out to Nicole McLaughlin Acupuncture. You can expect my commitment to you and a holistic approach to your health. Welcome!
At your first visit, you’ll share your health history and define your health priorities. I’ll listen and design a treatment plan with acupuncture and other East Asian Medicine modalities. While treatment plans vary, new patients can expect 6-12 weeks of continuous care. At every follow-up visit, I always want to know what’s going well first. Then you’ll discuss your primary concern and what’s changed — whether things have improved, declined, or stayed the same.
When your primary concern has been resolved, you can reduce treatments to monthly or seasonal maintenance. Otherwise, you can bring up another health concern you’d like to address. If you’re looking for a solution to your health concerns, you’ve come to the right place.
