New Patient FAQ

How does acupuncture work?

This article offers a thorough explanation of how acupuncture influences the body’s systems: https://medschool.ucsd.edu/som/fmph/research/cim/clinicalcare/Pages/About-Acupuncture.aspx

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 am able to provide a superbill 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.

Does acupuncture hurt? How will I feel after the treatment

No. Sensations are to be expected and are a sign that the body is responding to the treatment. However pain is not a part of the process. 

Reactions to treatment vary greatly, some experience immediate relief, for others the symptoms may increase (generally a good sign, that the body is working on healing itself). If you have any questions or concerns whatsoever after treatment contact me. 

 

Do you offer any discounted treatment options?

I offer “buddy treatments” for returning clients. You and a friend will be treated concurrently! It’s a fun and effective way to receive treatment while mitigating cost. The fee for “buddy” treatments are $50 each for 60 minutes, $75 each for 90 minutes. 

I also offer community style group acupuncture/meditation sessions that are $25 and last 60 minutes.
