First Visit


Welcome to Communi-Qi Acupuncture.  Whether this is your first time receiving acupuncture or you’re a long time acupuncture veteran, we are glad you’re here!  

Upon arriving at CQA, we will review and discuss your Health history and goals based on your Intake Forms.  These forms are available online & sent to you via email with your appointment confirmation or at the front desk. Please share with us any concerns your might have about your health. 

It is important for us to be informed of all medications and supplements you are taking.  Please update us with changes. This allows us to adjust your treatments accordingly.

Help yourself to tea or water. 

Upon entering a treatment room, please turn your phone to silent and keep your voices low. Our rooms are set up to be calm, peaceful and relaxing.  Relaxing improves your treatment outcomes. Look over the Etiquette and Before & After section for further details.
Get comfortable in one of the reclining chairs for Community or a Table in the Private Rooms.  Roll up your sleeves to your elbows and pant legs to your knees. Blankets and pillows are available. Your practitioner will be with you shortly.


Your provider may use diagnostic tools like looking at your tongue, taking your pulse or pressing on your abdomen. These are important diagnostic tools that Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners utilize to locate and address your health needs. These observations combined with your health history and goals allow us to develop a Chinese medicine diagnosis and choose the appropriate course of treatment.  

An Initial Acupuncture Appointment can last anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 ½ hours.
Booking an appointment online is quick and easy! Scheduling is ALWAYS recommended.  You will need at least 2 hour in advance to book an appointment online. Same day appointments are often available. If it is within 2 hour of your treatment, please call to check availability. 

Your practitioner will work with you to develop what is the best course of treatment for achieving your health goals.   

We look forward to working with you
