Acupuncture sessions are one-on-one sessions where I work closely with you in a private setting. On the first treatment, we will discuss your health history, your reasons for seeking acupuncture care, and your wellness goals. At this point, a personalized treatment plan will be designed for you.
You will relax on a comfortable recliner or a massage table during your session. Each treatment is unique. I typically needle only on various points on your legs, feet, arms, hands, ears or head. In rare occasions, points on the torso may be selected. Moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, infrared, and manual therapy may be recommended and utilized depending on the suitability of the conditions.
A treatment session typically last about 45-60 minutes, up to 75-90 minutes for intake and re-evaluation. After your initial consultation, I will recommend a custom course of treatments, as well as setting goals to work towards to.
PRICING & INSURANCE
If you plan to use your insurance benefits to cover the cost, then please kindly contact me prior to scheduling an appointment, so I can verify with your insurance provider whether your policy will cover acupuncture. With the benefits, you will still be responsible for payment of any deductibles, co-pays, and coinsurance amounts not covered by your insurance provider. If I am unable to verify coverage prior to your treatment, you will be charged for the treatment until verification is obtained.
