"Honestly I don’t know how I would have made it through the pregnancy without Andrew's care! He was so much more helpful than my OB and all caregivers combined. He changed my life by helping with the migraines. I was so discouraged after years of medication and doctors ... I honestly never imagined I would be able to come off medicine, or have the quality of life I now experience!"

How we work 

&

What to expect

Scheduling:  please call or email to schedule your Initial Intake and Treatment.  You can also ask all your questions before you even come in!  Once you have scheduled you'll receive an email confirmation with a link to fill out your medical forms and consent forms online (no need to print anything and no forms to fill out when you get here!).

 

First Visit:  ​(90 minutes)  We will show you around our clinic and go through some pre-treatment screening procedures and introductions.  At this point we will also answer any questions you might have.  We will then discuss your symptoms in detail and talk through your goals.  We will go through a thorough health history and ask a lot of questions that are designed to pinpoint the imbalance that is leading to your symptoms.  We will explain how this medicine describes how your symptoms arise from that imbalance, and what we can do about it.  We will create your treatment plan, explain it fully to you and finally we will get to the treatment itself!  This treatment will be designed specifically to address the imbalance we have found and may include acupuncture, herbal medicine, guasha, moxibustion, cupping therapy or massage/bodywork therapy.  There is no additional cost for the extra things we do!

Follow-up Visits:  (60 minutes)  You can book follow-ups while you are in the clinic, online or by emailing.  At each follow-up we will briefly check in to see how our initial treatment felt and how you have felt since, then we'll get right to work.  Adjustments to the treatment plan will be made each time we see you so that your progress is moved forward as much as possible with each visit.  

Payment:  The first session of the week is $80 and any subsequent treatments in the same week are $55.  This includes EVERYTHING that we do in your session.  The cost of herbs includes a small stocking fee but we do not make any profit from anything we prescribe to you.  We accept payment at time of service and are not "in-network" with any insurance providers.  If you have out-of-network acupuncture coverage we can supply you with a "superbill" for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.  Many of our patients get fully reimbursed for their treatments!

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile, single-use, hair-thin needles at specific points on the body. These points are organized along pathways called channels.  Stimulation of these points restores the healthy flow of information along the channels between the various systems that regulate health and balance in the body.  Acupuncture sessions often include massage, herbs and other modalities.  read more here
