We accept insurance plans that provide benefits for acupuncture performed by out-of-network practitioners. If your plan accepts only in-network practitioners we cannot accept your insurance as payment. However, we do provide upon request insurance receipts that can be submitted directly to your plan for reimbursement to you. Some plans will reimburse small percentages to plan holders.

Most of our clients tell us that our acupuncture is unlike other experiences they've had. Our practitioners use a detailed and ultra-thorough needling style, oftening working with each acupuncture point for several minutes to ensure that all angles and relevant layers of tissue are addressed.
Because of the level of detail applied to both assessment and treatment, we tend to work with our clients for the full length of their session, versus leaving them alone to rest with needles for 20-30min. This allows us to cover multiple angles to any given condition in a single session.
The point of acupuncture is not to create pain, but to open energetic and circulatory blockages in dense, stagnated tissues. Insertion of needles can create sensations, such as tingling, warmth or heat, dull aching (kind of like a mild toothache), traveling sensations - all of which connect to a general sense of relief and release.
The most significant sensation related to acupuncture is relaxation. It's not uncommon to find our clients asleep while still being needled.
For those who are either scared of needles or are ultra sensitive to sensations, we use special body cradling techniques to help them feel safe and create a less active sensation, while still allowing the needles to get the job done.
