Consent for Purposes of Treatment and Health Care Operation

A sensation of light-headedness may occur after acupuncture treatment. I will immediately notify the acupuncturist if I experience any symptoms or problems. I understand that I should not make significant movements while the needles are being inserted, manipulated, retained or removed.

I am relying on the TCM practitioner to exercise judgment during the course of my treatment, trusting that, based upon the known facts, this treatment plan is appropriate and is in my best interest. I understand that acupuncture and other methods used during treatment are not a substitute for treatment by a medical doctor. Also, at any given time throughout the treatment, I may request the practitioner to stop, modify or change the treatment plan. I also understand that results are not guaranteed.
