 Treatment Options 

The initial visit includes an evaluation, exam and treatment.  Expect this first visit to last almost 2 hours.  Please bring shorts or wear loose pants.

       Based on the evaluation, the follow-up visits are considered either "Focused Treatments"  or "Comprehensive Treatments".


Focused (Basic) Treatment

This includes conditions such as acute injury, weight control and smoking cessation. The treatment  focuses on one condition and is a​bout 45 minutes. 

Comprehensive Treatment-

These more complex, multiple conditions require a more comprehensive treatment. These also may require additional methods such as cupping, needle puncturing or electro-accupuncture.  The treatment time is about 75 minutes. 


Herbal Medicine

​   Herbal medicine may be recommended as your treatment in conjunction with acupuncture or by itself. 


Insurance

 Acupuncture may be covered by your  insurance provider. Please check your insurance policy for details regarding coverage. We currently are in-network with United Healthcare and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Other insurance plans are pending. 



                      Our Services


To determine if acupuncture is right for you, we offer a free 15 minute consultation. After listening to your main health concerns and responding to some related questions, we will suggest treatment options that may include acupuncture, herbal medicine and other additional approaches.


If you choose to seek treatment, you will then be given a more in-depth evaluation, leading to a treatment plan. This includes a Health History Questionnaire to be completed  on your first visit.  If you wish, you can

download and fill out the attached questionnaire

and bring it with you or fill it out at the office.


How many treatments will I need?
Number of treatments needed depends on what is being treated. Generally, Acute conditions (that have just developed)  require fewer treatments than chronic conditions. Usually treatment is more frequent at the beginning then reduced in frequency working toward maintaining health.
