*Bridge Wellness does process some insurance for Patients. Many plans do cover Acupuncture.  When requesting your first appointment please let us know if you would like to use insurance and we can check benefits for you where appropriate.

Your first visit will begin with an in-depth assessment of your condition and an initial treatment. As part of your first visit, you will receive a customized treatment plan detailing an appropriate course of treatment for your specific condition. In general, acute conditions of recent onset may only require two or three treatments. Chronic conditions usually require more treatments to achieve sustained results.

We ask that you fill out and bring completed initial intake forms to your first appointment. You can download a pdf form here.

Treatment

Needles are typically retained for about 30-45 minutes. Often people fall asleep during treatment. In addition to acupuncture, treatments may include light massage, heat therapy, herbal prescriptions, nutritional supplements, and diet and lifestyle recommendations.

Preparing for Your Treatment

* Please provide a list of current medications you are taking, including any prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, and vitamins.

* Please provide any lab or medical reports relevant to your condition.

* Eat a light meal a few hours prior to your visit. Acupuncture is not performed on individuals who are fasting. At the same time, please do not overeat or eat any foods that cause your stomach to be upset (for example, rich, greasy, fried, or extremely spicy foods).

*Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Acupuncture points are located all over the body. Many of the acupuncture points that are commonly used are located between the wrists and elbows and the ankles and knees.
