Acupuncture is a safe and relaxing medical procedure wherein very thin needles are methodically inserted both locally and distally on various parts of the body to relieve pain, treat menstrual issues, mental and emotional health, stomach issues and much, much more. At your initial appointment, a thorough intake is completed and then you will receive your first acupuncture treatment. There will be time for you to ask any questions you might have about Chinese Medicine and our practitioners are very skilled at assessing your individual needs for maximum comfort.

SAAT Allergy Treatment
SAAT is a technique developed by Dr. Nader Soliman M.D, which utilizes muscle testing with homeopathy alongside auricular acupuncture to determine what a patient's allergies are, if they have MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome), and to eradicate the body's production of antibodies that are causing the patient's uncomfortable symptoms. Successful treatment with the SAAT technique may completely eradicate a patient's allergy symptoms longterm. You can read more about SAAT allergy treatments with Dr. Molly here.
When you book your first appointment with Annapolis Family Acupuncture, you should receive an email welcoming you to our practice with a link to complete your new patient intake and to sign our release forms. It is extremely helpful if you fill out the forms online prior to your appointment; please allow at least fifteen minutes to complete this extensive intake. If you prefer for some reason to complete them in office, please arrive twenty minutes early to do so, so that it does not cut into your treatment. Our doctors care very much about the thoroughness and integrity of their care for you, and your appointment time is set to accommodate that.
