What to expect at your first visit
At Stonington Natural Health Center, our objective is to help you relax, heal, and become healthier and happier.
Your first Acupuncture appointment begins with a half hour health history intake with Dr. Megan Marco in one of our beautiful, calming four-season rooms. You will discuss your health concerns and desired outcomes. Dr. Marco asks you questions, privately and without judgment, from both a Western and Chinese perspective. She generously draws upon her years of experience and training to develop a treatment plan that will promote your best outcomes, healing, and wellness.
After your health history intake, Dr. Marco will begin your Acupuncture treatment. You will be in a soothing and comfortable atmosphere, designed to provide you the most benefits for your health and well-being. Dr. Marco has incorporated her favorite relaxation atmosphere, including soothing music, dimming lights, hot stones, Far Infrared heat lamps to soothe away stress, tension, and pain, and relaxing Balance Method Acupuncture.
Acupuncture points are like the buttons on a circuit board. During your Acupuncture treatment, we are able to activate a specific combination of buttons which sends signals to your brain to rewire the circuitry so your body can heal. Our goal is for you to be incredibly comfortable, relaxed, and heal.
Your initial treatment will be completed with a closing conversation with Dr. Marco. You will discuss your Acupuncture treatment plan, recommended Chinese herbal formulas, and nutrition, as well as answers to any final questions or comments you wish to address.
