Acupuncture treatments include a comprehensive health history and intake, as well as the appropriate treatment to support you and your current health condition. This may include complementary modalities of traditional Chinese medicine, such as moxibustion, gua sha, cupping, tui na, or electrical stimulation, and may include herbal, nutrition, and lifestyle recommendations. Learn more here!

Herbal consultations, without acupuncture, are also available.


Energy Medicine Services + Rates

 

All energy medicine sessions can be done either in person or remotely, using Zoom. You can purchase remote healing sessions through my online store.

Healing Touch

60 minutes / $60

5 session package* / $275

10 session package* / $500

*Please note that packages are available only to existing clients. If you are interested in pursuing a series of Healing Touch sessions, or if you are interested in giving the gift of healing to a friend, let's start with an initial session to see if we are a good fit. If we both decide we would like to work together in support of your healing process, you will then be welcome to purchase a package any time after the initial session. Learn more about Healing Touch here!

Breathwork

60-75 minutes / $120

Breathwork is a guided, active meditation that moves energy and supports the release of emotions and patterns using a specific type of breathing pattern. I may use smudging tools and essential oils as needed, while I guide and support you during the session. Learn more about Breathwork here!


For supplements, I use a wide (but curated and particular) range of brands, some of which are available from health food stores, other which are only available through healthcare practitioners. Most of the Western herbs, adaptogens, vitamin and mineral supplements, and nutritional products that I suggest are available through my online dispensary (through Wellevate/Emerson Ecologics) which is open to the public. Feel free to create an account and peruse my product selection for a better sense of what I draw upon.

WHERE CAN I FIND QUALITY SUPPLEMENTS?


YOUR FIRST Acupuncture VISIT

WHAT TO EXPECT

At your first visit, we will review your health history, discuss your current condition and health goals, and plan an individualized treatment plan that includes acupuncture and / or herbal medicine (and may include other modalities of Chinese medicine that are relevant and clinically beneficial for you at this time); then, you will receive an acupuncture treatment that supports the treatment plan.  The needles are usually in for 20-45 minutes, depending on the condition, and most people find it incredibly relaxing and use the time to meditate or nap.  The first visit is 90 minutes, and follow up appointments are 60 minutes.

Before you arrive

After you have made your appointment, you will have access to the secure, HIPAA-compliant Patient Portal, where the health history and intake form is available to complete at your convenience.  No problem if you don't get to it ahead of time : you can also fill it out when you arrive, in which case, please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time.

Please bring the names of any medical doctors and other health practitioners that you are currently working with, and the results of any recent medical tests (blood work, x-rays / MRIs, etc) that are relevant to your current health goals.  Please also bring a complete list of all prescription medications, herbal medications, nutritional supplements, and homeopathic remedies that you are currently taking.

What to wear

Many of the most powerful acupuncture points are located on the limbs below the elbows and the knees; that said, I also often treat using points on the abdomen or back.  Please wear loose, comfortable clothing (pants and shirts that roll up easily) or be prepared to change out of those skinny jeans!


CANCELLATION + RESCHEDULING POLICY

I have a 24-hour cancellation policy; you will be charged in full for any changes made to your appointment (including rescheduling and cancellation) within 24 hours.  Thank you for letting me know as soon as possible if you need to reschedule an appointment. 


Insurance

It is my pleasure to accept health insurance; I am an out-of-network provider for *most* insurance plans with acupuncture coverage! Policies and coverage can vary widely, so just fill out this form -- I'll check with your insurance company for you and get back to you within 48 hours with details about your acupuncture coverage!
