Call me at 417-353-8868 to schedule an appointment or talk about your questions about how acupuncture can help you.
Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years, in China and around the world, to treat physical and emotional health issues. Current research shows that acupuncture improves pain, anxiety and depression, digestive, autoimmune and women’s health issues.
It doesn’t hurt. Most people are surprised to find that acupuncture doesn’t hurt and that it is deeply relaxing. I use the tiniest needles possible with extra gentle Japanese techniques. You may occasionally feel a mild sensation when a 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 treatment is $85 and subsequent visits are $65. You can pay with cash, check, credit card and Flexible Spending Account. I can give you an invoice to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if your plan covers acupuncture.
What should I know about my first visit? Eat a little something an hour or two before your appointment. It’s best to wear shorts or stretchy pants that roll up easily, because I usually want to do points around your knees and elbows. You’ll fill out some simple paperwork, then we’ll talk about your goals for treatment. You’ll lie down on a comfortable massage table and I’ll insert the needles, usually on your head, ears, arms, legs, and sometimes on your back and/or belly. You may also need to remove or pull up your shirt so that I can put needles and cups on your back. Once the needles are in, you will have a nice nap for about 30 minutes. It’s best if you can schedule your treatment so that you can relax afterwards, rather than rushing back to a busy day.
