New Patients

Welcome to SAP!  Here is some information to help your first visit go extra smooth.

You can schedule a first time appointment by phone (916) 800 – 2949 or by going to our online appointment scheduler. Scroll down to “Acupuncture: New Patient Visit” and choose “Acupuncture- NEW PATIENT VISIT: 30 to 45 minute rest time”. You will need a credit card handy to prepay $45 for your first appointment. Once you schedule, you’ll get a confirmation email with a link to our New Patient Forms. Please fill these out as soon as possible so that we have time to review them before your first treatment.  You can also use the following link to fill out our New Patient Forms prior to your first visit: NEW PATIENT FORMS

Some House Rules:

  • Please do not wear perfumes or essential oils. We keep the clinic scent free to support those that are sensitive to scents.
  • When you enter the clinic, please:
    • Turn off or silence your cell phone
    • Use some hand sanitizer by the door
  • Once seated, you can store your belongings underneath or behind your chair. We will be moving around the chair and do not want to step on anything precious!

First Visit Treatment Flow

  • Once you are settled in your chair we will chat about any concerns you mentioned in your forms and then we will place your needles.
  • Once your needles are placed you can rest for as long as you like. Most people rest for about 30 – 60 minutes. If you need anything during this time give us a meaningful look as we’re walking through the clinic and we will check in. Please do not get up with needles in.
  • Please allow at least 1 hour for your appointment.
