Patient Visit


Tell me about your symptom. Receive acupuncture. Repeat.


Whether you are starting acupuncture for the first time or are looking to start with me as a new practitioner, we can create a treatment plan that heals. With any treatment we are addressing underlying root causes as well as current day-to-day difficulties overcoming the symptoms’ imposition in your life. This is the beauty of holistic medicine reaching various levels of illness and a testament to its far reaching effectiveness.

I would love to consult with you about your condition. I offer all prospective patients a free 10-15 minute phone call. I will field any special accommodations or questions about your symptoms. I will also give you an overview of how acupuncture works, and how it can help you in your specific case.

Consult with your doctor about acupuncture – most doctors are very open to and strongly encourage acupuncture as complementary medicine to whatever health routine you have going on. Bring in X-rays, blood lab results, pharmaceuticals you are taking if you think this would help me in my diagnosis and treatment of your symptom(s).

Tell your story however you want to. There is always a back story! 🙂

My aim as practitioner is to make treatment comfortable and available to you. Acupuncture will enhance your current wellness routine so you enjoy more positive side effects like a fuller, more holistic life.

Receive comprehensive care in the form of multiple oriental modalities and personal coaching. We can use a wider variety of treatments on your torso and back. I treat people for internal medicine as well as pain management.

Cost is $145 for the first consultation and treatment (2 hrs), $95 for all subsequent treatments (1hr). Check or cash preferred with the option of PayPal or Venmo.

Check with your insurance provider what they cover. Currently in the application process with CareFirst Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, and Cigna.

(Community Clinic hours in the Community Room at this location is TBA.)

Home visits: $200

Frequency of Visits                                      

I recommend patients to see me two to three times a week in the first three weeks, then once a week, twice a month, and then going on to once a month or once a season to keep symptoms from reappearing. Like an Rx prescription, symptoms don’t disappear overnight and frequent visits help maintain a state of wellness as the body repairs. Of course this varies with each individual patient, their needs, and their objectives with treatment.

With regular acupuncture, you will experience significant relief in the intensity, duration, and frequency of your symptom(s) if not getting rid of the symptom(s) all together. Possibilities open up, new life opens up, and there is more ease. Things start flowing in life again.
