Patient Advisory to Consult a Physician:
While Eastern medicine has a great deal to offer as a health care system, it cannot replace the resources available through traditional Western Medical practices. Consequently, we recommend that you consult a physician regarding condition (s) for which you are seeking acupuncture and Eastern medicine.
Informed Consent to Acupuncture Treatment:

I understand that methods of treatment may include but are not limited to: acupuncture, acupressure, therapeutic massage, bioelectrical stimulation, moxibustion, cupping therapy, and reiki. Acupuncture is a safe method of treatment with a history of over 2, 500 years. However, acupuncture may have side effects such as dizziness, fainting, bruising, numbness or tingling near the needling sites that may last a few days on rare occasions. Slight bruising is a possible side effect of acupuncture and cupping therapy. Mild burns and/or scarring are a possible risk of moxibustion. Highly unusual risks of acupuncture may include infections, spontaneous miscarriage, minor nerve damage, and organ puncture. We comply with strict protocols for needle usage and associated healing modalities. I understand while this document describes the possible risks of treatments,
Informed Consent to Herbal Medicine:
Eastern Medicine uses and recommends herbs and nutritional supplements from plant, animal, and mineral sources which are traditionally considered safe in oriental medicinal practices. However, taking large doses may be toxic. Herbs may have an unpleasant smell or taste. Possible side effects from taking herbs are nausea, stomachache, vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, hives, and tingling of the tongue. Some herbs may be inappropriate during pregnancy. I will notify my treating acupuncturist if I am pregnant or suspect that I am pregnant before each treatment begins. I understand that the recommended herbs need to be prepared and consumed according to the instructions provided orally and in writing by the attending acupuncturist. I will immediately notify my acupuncturist of any unanticipated or unpleasant effects associated with the consumption of the herbal recommendations.
I understand that it is my responsibility to inform my treating acupuncturist if I become pregnant or suspect that I
am pregnant before each treatment begins.

I do not expect the acupuncturist to be able to anticipate and explain all possible risks and complications of

treatment. I wish to rely of the acupuncturist to exercise judgment in my best interest during the course of
treatments which are determined based upon the facts clearly presented to the treating acupuncturist prior to
treatment. All of my records will be kept confidential and will not be released to any party without my written

By voluntarily signing below, I show that I have read, or have had read to me, the entire contents of this Patient
