New Patients - Forms
Important points for before and after your first visit.
Print and bring the following forms filled out with you before your first appointment. Please note that you will need to be buzzed into the building, this is a small office and I do not have a receptionist. I will not be able to answer the door if you are more than 20 minutes early as I am with another client. There is a Starbucks on the corner of Charles and Beacon. Thank you.
Before Your Treatment
After Your Treatment
Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment so you can be on the treatment table at your appointment time. I cannot accomodate clients that are more than 15 minutes late. You will need to reschedule.
Please ring buzzer that says Kim Foster Acupuncture, when you come into building, go to directly to second floor.
Bring work out type shorts and a camisole type top.
Please fill out medical forms and bring them with you or come in 15 minutes early to fill it out.
If you plan on working out before your appointment please drink plenty of water and have had either a meal or snack.
Please DO NOT WORKOUT after your appointment so that you can give your body time to integrate the treatment.
Eat a meal with protein and lots of veggies, drink plenty of water.
For the best results it is recommended that people decrease all inflammatory type foods, beverages and substances. These include dairy, gluten, refined (white sugar), soy, corn, alcohol, marajuana, tobacco. And increase servings of vegetables especially leafy greens and water intake.
Please DO NOT WORKOUT after your appointment so that you can give your body time to integrate the treatment. Gentle stretching is okay.
If you are sore from the Tuina, use a CBD cream, a Chinese Herbal ligament or take a bath with magnesium flakes or epsom salts. You may experience soreness for several days following your treatment. This is normal since we are breaking down the adhesions in the soft tissue.
Call or text the office with any questions or concerns following your treatment.
