Humans have used acupuncture for thousands of years, in China and around the world, to treat both physical and emotional issues. Current research shows that acupuncture improves pain, anxiety and depression, digestive, autoimmune and women’s health issues.

Acupuncture doesn’t hurt. Most people are surprised to find that acupuncture doesn’t hurt, and is deeply relaxing. I use the smallest needles possible with gentle Japanese acupuncture techniques. You may occasionally feel a sensation when the needle is inserted, but I believe that acupuncture shouldn’t hurt. Please tell me if a needle ever bothers you so that I can adjust or remove it.

Cost? Your first visit is $85, subsequent treatments are $65, and I offer packages of 6 or more treatments for $50 per treatment. I can also offer lower rates on an individual basis for people who come in frequently and can’t afford my regular rates. We can work out a payment plan that works for you.
