What to expect at your first visit
At Stonington Natural Health Center, our objective is to help you feel relaxed, enjoy your visit, and heal, while you are taking steps toward a healthier, happier you.
Your first Acupuncture appointment will begin with a half hour health history intake with Dr. Megan Marco in one of our calming four-season rooms. You will be able to 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 wealth of experience and training to develop a health plan that will promote your best outcomes, healing, and wellness for you.
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 in her favorite relaxation atmosphere, including soothing music, dimming lights, hot stones, and Far Infrared heat lamps to soothe away stress, tension, and pain. Acupuncture points are like the buttons on a circuit board. During an 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 relaxed by the Acupuncture.
Your initial treatment will be completed with a closing conversation with Dr. Marco. Your Acupuncture treatment plan and recommended Chinese herbal formulas and nutrition will be discussed, as well as answers to any final questions or comments you wish to address.
