Usually, the first visit including Guasha (body detoxing), cupping, acupuncture, herbs, meridian stagnation/blockages checking, etc.   If you have pains, including headaches, you may see the pains relief immediately.  


Before the first visit, you need to submit health questionnaires and patient's information forms online, so these two forms will help Dr. Yang to reviews your full health history as well as current symptoms.  

In the first visit, Dr. Yang will check your body's energy/Qi states, healthy or sick? strong or weak? Dark or light? if necessary, a whole-body energy checkup before any treatment is administered at EHE. Though you may come to EHE with a particular issue or ailment, the underlying cause may likely be something unexpected.  Also, may study your pulse, analyzes your tongue, tests pressure points along your meridians: are there blockages? as Qi moving uninterrupted?  Health lifestyle is the key for recovering, so in the patient's questionnaires, you will be asked to about your lifestyle, like eating habits, sleeping habits (including sleeping environment), etc. and also Inquires about your emotional and mental states, and analyzes potential root causes of emotional disturbances.  

After knowing how your body react during and after the first treatment,  Dr. Yang will have a holistic overview of your total health situation, as well as a thorough understanding of your body's reactions to certain stimuli. She will then discuss what steps she will take with you to get you feeling better physically and emotionally. 

Because of this holistic approach, Dr. Joy Yang has helped many clients recover without additional medications, alternative treatments, or invasive surgeries.
