Initial Consultation with Treatment (up to 2 hours): $180
30 minute health history review + acupuncture treatment
The initial treatment is our time to explore how your symptoms relate to Chinese Medicine and how you well you respond to acupuncture. We will begin with a face to face 20-30 minute conversation about your health history and current symptoms. I will read your tongue and pulse to even further understand the root cause of your symptoms. We will decided if both sides of your body need to be treated. You will lay face down for a back treatment and face up for a front treatment. I like to start with that back treatment first and then do the front treatment. I will alcohol the points to be needled and then I will use one-time use disposable needles to needle acupuncture points that correspond to your Chinese Medicine diagnosis. I will immediately be able to tell if you are responding to the needles on your back. Not all people respond to needles on the back, but it is important to "test" these points during the first session, so we know for future sessions if we should treat your back. After 20-30 minutes, we will take the needles out and you will flip over, so we can needle the front side of your body. Again, I will immediately be able to tell if you are responding the needles on the front of the body. You may respond to both sides or just one side. Follow-up treatments are 1.5 hours for both sides and 1 hour for one side.

Just cupping (30 minutes): $60
Included with acupuncture session if necessary for best treatment results.
Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and
held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.
Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.
