Patient Information   

To make an appointments at my office in Hatfield, please call 413-247-3388. I am also available in Chicopee at the Abundant Wellness Center on Mondays and Fridays between 2 and 5:30 pm. For directions and to make an appointment at the Abundant Wellness Center in Chicopee, please call 413-592-2828.

Please download my health history questionnaire and complete these forms before arriving for your appointment. If you’re unable to print these forms please arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment in order to complete the paperwork.

The initial acupuncture treatment generally lasts 1.5 hours. Follow up treatments are one hour. Diagnosis includes taking the pulse, palpating the neck and abdomen, looking at your tongue as well as the health history form. Treatment is based on the comprehensive assessment from all the collected information. Sterile, disposable hair thin needles only are used. Sensations felt upon insertion include a slight pinch, tingling or a zing of electrical energy or Qi. Once the needles are in you might feel heat, heaviness or an achy feeling at the site of insertion. This feeling usually dissipates shortly after the needles are removed. Treatments are generally very relaxing, with many people falling asleep during the treatment. Depending on the individual, results may be experienced immediately or may take several treatments to achieve the desired effect. Usually treatments occur 1-2 times per week, depending on the condition.

Please wear comfortable loose clothing, shorts or pants that can be raised above the knee. Women should wear a sports bra and avoid dresses. If you need to undress to reach particular areas a sheet or blanket will be provided.
