I care about your health and well being.  My goal is to deliver world class care to you.  If you think that I am the right Acupuncturist for you, then please schedule your Initial Appointment.



A typical Acupuncture treatment will consist of insertion of sterile single-use only filiform needles that are FDA approved at approximately 4 – 12 locations consistent with thousands of years of clinical experience and empirical observation and taking into account findings from recent clinical studies.  Needles are typically retained 15 to 30 minutes.  Variations in treatment depend upon the patient and how the patient presents on that day.

Some treatments could include or consist of adjunctive therapies such as Cupping, Electrical Stimulation (or “E-Stim”), Far Infrared ("FIR") heat therapy, Tui Na (Chinese Therapeutic Massage), Channel Palpation, or Moxibustion.

If your insurance covers acupuncture out-of-pocket I will most likely accept it.  Plans that have some policies that cover acupuncture include Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, and United.  Please send me a photo of your benefits card, and your date of birth by email to so that we can check your coverage.  It may take approximately 24 hours.

Treatments are by appointment only.  

A full fee will be charged for sessions cancelled less than 24 hours in advance.

Prices subject to change without prior notice.  Other terms and conditions may apply.

Please note that Acupuncture may not be appropriate for people with certain medical conditions such as very high or very low blood pressure.  In such cases I reserve the right to refuse treatment based upon my estimation of my capacity to effectively treat a patient without causing harm.
