Trying something for the first time can be exciting, and also a little scary because we don't know what to expect. It is completely natural to have questions and fears about receiving acupuncture for the first time. The truth is that acupuncture is a very safe modality of treatment with very little risks. To speak to me directly about any questions you might have, please contact me at 808 633 6581. To offer you a glimpse of what to expect, here is a list of suggestions:


  • Please arrive 5 minutes early to your first appointment. This will ensure you enough time to review and sign the consent form. 

  • Make sure you have eaten food 1-3 hours prior to your appointment time. 

  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing that can easily be pulled up over the knees and elbows.

  • If possible, do not plan any strenuous or stressful activity right after your appointment. Often, you will find that you are very relaxed after treatment. Rest or very light activity is recommended so the body can continue to heal itself afterwards.

  • Remember that you are doing something wonderful for yourself, so enjoy the new experience!
