How will we work together?

Here are the three easy steps for starting your acupuncture care:

  1. Call me, or email me. We’ll discuss how I can help you.

  2. Come in for your initial visit. I’ll listen to your concerns, discuss all aspects of your health, diagnose and treat you, and provide you with a plan for your care.

  3. Enjoy a series of sessions. You’ll find relief from your discomforts, relax your mind, and leave feeling refreshed and in control.

How long are appointments?

Your initial appointment will be 90 minutes long so that I can learn about your health history. This first appointment will serve as the basis for your future care, and will include: discussion of your concerns, diagnosis, treatment with acupuncture (along with herbs, cupping, and/or moxibustion, if appropriate for you), and a treatment plan.

Follow-up appointments will be 60 minutes long, and will include both consultation and treatment.

For pediatric care, appointments are typically 30 minutes long if the parent has filled out the health history questionnaire ahead of time; I may request an hour for more complex cases. All pediatric follow-up appointments will be 30 minutes long, including both consultation and treatment.

What if I'm afraid of needles?

I was too, initially. But generally, people find that these hair-thin needles don't create pain. If acupuncture does not feel right for you, we can use a combination of cupping, moxibustion, and herbal formulas to address your health needs.



Adult acupuncture treatments are $95 per visit. Your initial appointment will last 90 minutes, for $150.

Pediatric acupuncture treatments are $65 per visit. Initial appointments are also $65, unless I request an hour-long, $95 appointment to address a more complex pediatric health condition.

Chinese herbs are provided at additional cost.

I provide herbal consults for $95 for the initial visit and $30 for follow-up visits, plus the cost of herbs.

You may purchase a discount package of 10 visits for the price of 9.

I accept flexible spending account (FSA) and health savings account (HSA) cards and I can provide you with a receipt. I do not take insurance; I can give you a superbill for you to submit to your insurer.
