By appointment only
Your first visit will consist of a consultation and treatment. During your first visit, your acupuncturist will review your medical history and address your health goals. This is continued by observation and questioning to determine the nature of any disharmony according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The analysis includes any physical symptoms that you are exhibiting, lifestyle, sleep patterns and your emotions. Your acupuncturist then determines the best course of treatment for you. Expect to be at your first appointment for about 60-75 minutes.
PREPARATION FOR APPOINTMENT
If you are a first-time patient, please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment to fill out an intake form. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and to have a light snack within two hours of your scheduled time.
WHAT TO EXPECT
An acupuncture treatment will typically last 20-30 minutes, and while some may notice immediate relief, acupuncture works cumulatively within series of treatments to provide long-lasting relief and healing.
Accepted payment is by cash, credit card, check, insurance (out of network benefits), and FSA or HSA accounts.
For insurance patients, please click the link below to verify your insurance coverage prior to your appointment.
Note: Not all insurance plans pay for acupuncture care and I am out of network for plans. In order to best serve you I can verify your insurance benefits before you arrive. Please click on the link below and complete the online form. I will contact you as soon as the benefits are established (usually within 2-3 days).
Note: Medicare currently does cover acupuncture for non-specific low back pain only, however it needs to be performed and billed in the same office as an MD, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant which I am not affiliated with. Medicaid does not cover acupuncture at this time in Illinois.
Veterans/Military of the U.S. Armed Forces, police officers, firefighters, seniors over 65 years of age, and college students will receive a 10% discount on services (excludes care plans) .
