Acupuncture Prices

The first appointment [both health history and treatment] is 2 hours ~ $175
Follow-up appointments are at the rate of $100 an hour – for musculo-skeletal conditions, the session is usually 1.5 hours – there’s more effectiveness with the combined myo-fascial work and acupuncture combined in that time-frame.

I don’t take insurance, but I can give you a good super-bill for you to submit now. Please keep in mind that the majority of insurance plans only reimburse for pain conditions – yours may be an exception. 11/2016

My office is in Montrose, CA 91208. I will give you the address and parking information when we make our appointment.

I can email you a “fillable online” health intake, which you can return to me before your appointment, or bring with you. The Chinese Medicine oral intake is complex because I am trying to know you on a ‘constitutional’ level as well as addressing today’s issue, so the first appointment time is longer.

Cancellation Policy

It is my policy to allow clients to cancel or reschedule at no cost if they do so at least 24 hours in advance.
Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will warrant half payment for the scheduled appointment. If you don’t call or show up, you owe me the full amount.

However – please DO reschedule if you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a skin rash. There is no fee for rescheduling due to acute illness or a true emergency. Thank you for honoring this policy.

I would like to be very clear that the therapy I provide is non-sexual in nature. I do not welcome any clients whose intentions are sexually oriented.
