What Is Acupuncture? 

Acupuncture is like science combined with a little magic.  It can help you feel your pain fade away as a feeling of peace suffuses your every cell.  I provide Acupuncture meant to meet your needs and make your life – just a little easier!!
 

My goal is to make sure Acupuncture is safe, relaxing, gentle, and effective, and I draw on my 16 years’ of experience to customize your treatment to help you on your health journey. 

What Is Acupuncture Good For?

I have a specialty in women’s health & hormonal health – easing difficult periods, supporting fertility, plus making menopause easier, and post menopause a time of vibrant health.  
 
But Acupuncture is also used for all types of conditions.  Acupuncture is the first thing I think of for pain, insomnia, stress & anxiety, the immune system, the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, and healthy-aging.  Feel free to contact me to find out if Acupuncture would be right for you. 
 
 

What Style Of Acupuncture Do You Use?

Less needles and faster, more long-lasting results are what you can expect with the style of Acupuncture I use most, Master Tung’s Acupuncture.  But I also draw on my training and experience in TCM and Japanese styles of acupuncture when needed. 

 
What Can I Expect To Happen During My Acupuncture Treatment? 
We’ll start your treatment by talking.  I’ll get your history and information about your health.  I’ll ask things like – how is your energy level, how do you sleep, and where does it hurt.  
 
Then I’ll check your pulses, at your wrists, and have you stick out your tongue so I can look at it for just a sec –  weird right?  But it’s a great part of the Chinese Medicine Diagnosis!  
 
Then you’ll lie down on a massage table, with your clothes rolled up to your knees and elbows or under a sheet, and I’ll insert a few teeny, tiny acupuncture needles.  We’ll confirm you’re comfortable and pain free – and I’ll leave you to rest with the needles in for anywhere from 15 – 45 minutes.  You’ll have a button you can push to call me at any time, and I’ll be checking on you the whole time.  This is the part when people often fall asleep… 
 

Then I’ll remove the needles and you’ll be on your way. 

 
Does Acupuncture Hurt? 

 

I treated a 12 year old who was so nervous about getting Acupuncture needles his hands were gripping the sides of his table.  Then when I put in the first needle, he burst out in a huge peal of laughter and said, “THAT WAS IT??!!” I said – yup.  And all the tension drained out of his body for the rest of his treatment.  People usually doze off during Acupuncture treatments, because it’s so comfortable and relaxing.

 
What Is Chinese Herbal Medicine? 
 Chinese Herbal Medicine combined with Tonic Herbalism is an incredibly powerful system of healthcare with thousands of years of wisdom & experience behind it.
 
The right combination of herbs can help with everything from symptomatic relief to radically improving your health on the deepest levels and helping you to meet your health and life goals. 
 
I can recommend herbs for you at your Acupuncture visit, or you can schedule an in-office Herbal Consultation (without Acupuncture) for my personalized recommendations and to take advantage of my extensive online herbal pharmacy with the cleanest, highest quality herbs available.   
 
We can use herbs to work on specific challenges or we can go deeper and set up a custom Three Treasures Adaptogenic Herbal Program for you and work at optimizing your diet & lifestyle to get the best results from your herbs. 
 

Plus, I’ll help you keep your herbal combinations updated over time to support changing discomforts when needed then moving onto prevention and helping you achieve Radiant Health, known as health beyond danger

Do You Take Insurance? 

I don’t do any insurance billing directly, and payment is due at time of service via cash, card, or local check.  However, I’m happy to give you a special “superbill” receipt you may be able to use to get reimbursed.

 
How Should I Prepare For My Acupuncture Visit? 
If it’s  your first visit, be sure to fill out your New Patient Paperwork ahead of time.  You’ll receive it via email when you schedule your appointment.  If you’re not able to access online forms, we’ll take care of the paperwork together during your first visit. 
 

The only other thing I recommend is – don’t skip your last meal.  So if your appointment is in the morning – be sure to eat breakfast.  And if your appointment is in the afternoon – don’t skip lunch.  Even a snack is fine.  Just don’t come in without having eaten for more than 4-5 hours.  

 
Does My Acupuncture Appointment Include Herbal Recommendations? 
If you want to work with herbs, I’ll recommend herbal combinations to support the work we’re doing with your acupuncture… But this appointment is devoted to giving you the best Acupuncture experience with the best results possible.  
 
If you want to work with me more in-depth on this, we’ll set up a separate appointment that will be devoted to setting up a custom Three Treasures Adaptogenic Herbal Program for you and optimizing your diet & lifestyle to get the best results from herbs.
