What forms of payment do you accept?

Is acupuncture painful?
Not at all! In fact, most patients find acupuncture to be the most relaxing part of their day. Acupuncture needles are extremely thin and inserted very quickly so that almost no pain is felt. At most, you’ll feel a slight twinge or tingle.
I am concerned about the needles – are these safe?
Absolutely. Each acupuncture needle is packaged and for single use only, which ensures every needle is 100% sterile.
How long does a session last?
For new clients, a session usually lasts between 45-60 minutes. Subsequent visits range from 30-45 minutes.
How often should I receive treatments?
Each patient’s recommended treatment time is unique, determined on an individual basis and the condition being treated. Your individual treatment plan will discussed during your visit.
Are there any side-effects to acupuncture?
There are hardly any. In fact, most clients feel relaxed following their acupuncture session! In some cases, you may experience minimal bruising where the point of the needle was, but this should disappear fairly quickly.
Can acupuncture lead to bleeding?
Occasionally when the needle is removed, there might be very minimal blood. However, there should be no bleeding beyond this. It’s safe enough that acupuncture can still be provided to clients on blood thinners.
Are there age limitations to undergo acupuncture?
There are no age limits to receiving acupuncture. We have performed acupuncture safely on babies to seniors over age 90.
Does my insurance cover acupuncture?
Some insurance companies do provide coverage for acupuncture services. Our employees will happily verify your specific plan for you.
What clothing should I wear?
We suggest that you wear comfortable, loose clothing so that elbows, knees, and your abdomen can be accessed easily.
