You Asked, We Answered

View some of our most frequently asked questions below. If we don’t have an answer to your questions, please contact us via our online form.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. An acupuncturist inserts thin, single use sterile needles into the skin at multiple acupuncture points. These needles rebalance the body’s energy, or qi, and prompt the body to release natural chemicals to fight the illness or symptom.

On making your initial appointment there will be a confirmation email sent with your appointment time and date that you have selected. Please take 5-10 minutes to complete this form online prior to your session. Please arrive 5 minutes before your session time. If you do not fill out the new patient form online, please arrive 15 minutes early to your session. During the appointment you and your practitioner will go over the information together and begin the treatment. The treatment will last about 45 minutes to 1 hour. When finished your practitioner will answer any questions that you have as well as go over your treatment plan with you. If you have an outstanding balance this will need to be paid as well as scheduling your next appointment.

Becoming an Acupuncture Member is a great way to stay consistent with your sessions. For $119 per month, enjoy two acupuncture sessions at a discounted rate. These acupuncture sessions must be used before your next month payment is due. For example, if you become an Acupuncture-Member on March 1st, the 1st day of each month will be your “restart” date going forward. Payments are also set up on an automatic payment. You can cancel the membership at any time with a 30 day notice.

Your GPS will take you to the front of the building on Superior Dr NW. You can park in any of the parking spots in the lot in front of the building. Once you enter the building, head down the stair and we are located on the right.

**Please be advised, there is no elevator access down to our office.

We recommend that patients wear clothing that can be moved to access your knees and elbows.

We have other modalities that we can use if you don’t feel comfortable with needles.

​1. Cupping – Is typically done with a plastic or glass cup placed on the skin, then the air inside the cup is suctioned or vacuumed out.

2. Guasha – Is an alternative therapy that involves scraping one’s skin with a massage tool to improve circulation while reducing inflammation/adhesions.

3. Tuina – Is a style of massage that stimulates the flow of circulation to promote balance and harmonize the body.

4. Ear seeds – They are a form of auriculotherapy, which use acupressure points in the ear to stimulate organs and other parts of the body.

5. Acupressure – Putting pressure on specific acupuncture points to help release muscle tension and promote blood circulation.

6. Tuning Forks – Tuning forks can be placed on acupuncture points to stimulate the point much like what needles do.

7. Pointer Plus – Much like a TENS unit the pointer plus sends out controlled electrical pulses through the skin to stimulate muscles and nerves.
