I see patients all day Tuesday/Thursday and on Wednesday/Friday afternoons.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of medicine that is over 3,000 years old. It emphasizes the interconnection of all the systems within the body, and that balance throughout these systems results in overall health. Traditional Chinese Medicine is unique in that it is a comprehensive system that can be applied to treat any disorder or disease. Regular treatments to maintain health are also used to help prevent disease. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are the two core modalities that constitute Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Initial visits are $90 and follow-up visits are $75. If herbs are needed, the costs are typically around $20 to $40 per week. A discount is offered for students and children under 18.
All clients are responsible for the full cost of their treatment at the time of visit. I accept cash, check, Visa and Mastercard.
I’m in the process of getting in network with certain insurance companies. Please contact me if you are curious about your insurance plan.

For all other insurance companies, I can provide a Superbill upon request. A Superbill is an invoice using standardized treatment codes for the services performed during your visit. The Superbill can be submitted to your insurance carrier for full or partial reimbursement depending on your policy. Clients should always check with their insurance carriers to verify that Superbills are accepted.

Acupuncture needles are hair thin and flexible. There is little sensitivity with the insertion of acupuncture needles. As the needle penetrates the skin there can be a mild sensation of warmth, tingling, numbness, or heaviness but very rarely is there pain. The needles are left in place for twenty to forty minutes. Most people find the experience extremely relaxing and even fall asleep for the duration of the treatment.
