ABOUT YOUR APPOINTMENT

Q:  Do I need to do anything to prepare?

A:   We recommend that you try to refrain from smoking or chewing tobacco for 3 hours before your session. 10 hours is the maximum we would want you to go without smoking. Other than that, there is no specific preparation needed beyond a sincere desire to stop smoking.

We will be asking a series of questions regarding your health history, including a list of current or recent medical conditions, and of the medications, supplements and vitamins you are currently taking.

We may ask you to remove some jewelry from your wrists and hands during the session.
There is no need to disrobe any articles of clothing for the session.

Q:  How long will it take?

A:   Your initial appointment will take about an hour. We recommend that you schedule one or two follow-up treatment (included in the cost for up to 3 months) within 1-3 days after the first. Any follow-up appointment will take about 30 minutes.

Q:  Can I drive myself to and from the session?

A:  Yes. Most clients feel very relaxed from their session, and some even feel a very mild sense of elation, but there are no known effects that would interfere with driving.
