First Appointment Overview

90 Min $185
120 Min $200

Having a consultation for your first visit is essential. Not only do we go through your Medical History forms together, but we discuss how the symptoms and issues you are coming in for relate to the world of traditional Chinese medicine. I feel it is important to share how the medicine works, and per my experience, when the person has a better understanding of this abstract healing modality, their consciousness shifts, and healing begins. What I do in my healing practice is extensive, and someone ‘new’ to these types of treatments can be a bit overwhelmed by the depth of information coming at them. Therefore, I offer an extended consultation for more questions.

First Appointment Expectations

The 1st visit will range from 90–120 minutes. Thereafter, most treatments are approximately 75 minutes. Here is what we will cover in your first session:

  • Discuss your medical history
  • Introduction to the Ancient Wisdom of Chinese Medicine
  • Discuss how it works
  • Determine your treatment protocol for follow‑up sessions

After Healing Session

Rest, relax, and follow your body’s own inner wisdom. After each treatment, the body requires some ‘downtime’ in order to acclimate to the intended energy shifts. Just as if you finished a marathon, your body needs time to recuperate. Acupuncture is an energetic workout, and the best results are 12 to 24 hours following the treatment. Patients have reported feeling lighter and more relaxed with increased energy in the hours following their treatment.

Does My Insurance Cover Acupuncture?

It might?! Most insurance companies acknowledge Acupuncture to be a viable medical healing modality and cover varying amounts depending on a few factors, the most important of which is your carrier and individual policy.

The only insurance company I am in-network with is CIGNA, and will take care of the billing services for treatment. Otherwise, I am an out-of-network provider.

Insurance billing can be complicated, especially for out-of-network policies. However, in some cases, it makes sense depending on the details of the policy and is worth a conversation.
