How many treatments will I need?

A series of 3 initial acupuncture treatments is often prescribed, after which treatment frequency is reduced. Ultimately treatment should be received on a preventative bases every 4-8 weeks to mitigate stress and prevent new issues from arising. 

Holistic wellness coaching sessions generally occur every 2 weeks for the first 3 months, after which we will meet for monthly sessions. Holistic wellness sessions can be done long distance via video conferencing. 

 

Does insurance cover acupuncture?

Many insurance companies cover acupuncture, call your insurance company directly to find out. I’m a solo pracititioner so I do not bill insurance myself, I am able to provide a receipt so you can be reimbursed by your insurance company. Ask your insurance company what information they need on the treatment receipt.

 

Do you accept FSA or HSA?

Yes.

How do I know if I need 90 minute or 60 minute treatments?

All initial patient treatments are 90 minutes, after we set our treatment goals and your systems and health history are assessed we will discuss a treatment plan for you individually. For some conditions, the amount of progress made in 90 minutes vs 60 minutes is significant.
