What to Expect During Your First Visit

As a highly trained and experienced oriental medicine doctor and acupuncture specialist, Dr. McKenney builds compatibility with first-time clients and communicates clearly to determine the steps necessary to position the client for success and optimal well-being.

During the very first visit, Dr. McKenney will gather the information necessary to understand the current state of your health, which will impact the medical decisions moving forward. After a brief discussion, Dr. McKenney will likely perform a non-invasive health assessment, looking for anything that may better assist her in diagnosing future treatments. After the initial intake process, she will have the information needed to help her identify the underlying circumstances that may be causing any undesirable health conditions.

During your initial visit, Dr. McKenney will likely elect to perform an acupuncture treatment and begin addressing your health concerns right away. During this treatment, she will insert very fine needles into specifically targeting stimulation points along the body. Patients often do not feel the insertion or may feel a slight pinch. The needles are retained anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes, a time during which patients usually either fall asleep or enter deep relaxation. For more information on acupuncture, visit our Treatments page.

Following your initial intake session, Dr. McKenney will guide you in beginning a treatment plan. Depending on your unique circumstances, the treatment plan may include continual visits to Path to Wellness for acupuncture, herbal recommendations, modifications in everyday routines or a combination thereof. Regardless of what is involved with your plan, you can rest assured knowing Dr. McKenney tailored treatment specifically to meet your unique needs. Dr. McKenney will play an active role in your customized plan and be available throughout its course (and beyond). Consider Path to Wellness your partner in wellness.
