Priced To Make It Easy For You.
We charge a sliding fee scale of $15-$40, – you pay what works for you. We will never ask you about your income or make payment suggestions. You should pay whatever allows you to come in as often as needed to see improvement in your health. For new clients the first treatment is $25-50.
We accept all forms of payment – cash or check are preferred but we do accept all types of cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, AmEx, HSA/FSA). Bring exact change if paying by cash. If you want a receipt for your insurance company, HSA, FSA, or taxes , you must request a receipt at the time of service and keep it for your records. We do not keep track of individual payments, and cannot offer a receipt at year’s end. Thank you for participating in the systems which help us to keep our fees low.
Does My Insurance Plan Cover This?
We do not bill insurance. Most co-pays fall with-in the range of our sliding scale of $15-40. Receipts are available on the payment station which you then submit to your company, and some people have been able to get reimbursed this way.
New to the Clinic?

How Long Is An Appointment?
You tell us, you’re in charge. Treatment time is about an hour, but some people stay longer. You can rest in your chair as long as you wish. Most people stay about 45 minutes but the length of your treatment can be shorter if you have time constraints, or can be longer, if no one is waiting for a chair. Please communicate your needs with your acupuncturist. After treatment most people feel refreshed and energized. Other people don’t feel anything until the next day. There is no right or wrong experience with your own healing.
How Does It Work?
The easiest way to explain it is that acupuncture points stimulate your nervous system to tell your brain to heal certain areas. MRIs have shown that certain acupuncture points stimulate very specific areas of the brain. We gently place very thin needles in specific places that allow the body to relax and self regulate. Acupuncture activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms and triggers the same responses that would be activated after any illness or injury.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, and the treatment is usually painless. Dull, achy, tingling or numb sensations are normal. If you are feeling uncomfortable though, please let your acupuncturist know, we want you to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
