All first-time visits are 1.5 hours and include a review of your medical history, examination, East-Asian medical diagnosis, and treatment. Follow-up treatments are 45–60 minutes. We will decide together what therapies will best address your concerns. A single treatment may entail multiple therapies, such as acupuncture with cupping, moxa, or gua sha. Nutritional and lifestyle recommendations are always included as needed.
Cosmetic acupuncture is most effective when performed in a series of at least 8 treatments, otherwise the effects can be lost. The greatest effect is seen when performed twice per week, but you may also schedule one treatment per week. The number of treatments needed to achieve the desired results depends on the patient's age, overall health, and condition of her skin. Most patients begin to see noticeable results between the 6th and 8th treatment.
We can apply cosmetic acupuncture to the face, neck, and abdomen.
New patient diagnostic session & treatment: $175 | 2 hours
Follow-up treatments: $150 | 1.5 hours
Maintenance treatments as needed: (recommended every few months to maintain results) $150 | 1 hour
(Prices do not include recommended supplements or skin products.)
Please note: We do not recommend cosmetic acupuncture for people who smoke cigarettes daily. Smoking causes too much damage to the skin for acupuncture to have much effect. Acupuncture can, however, be very helpful as part of a smoking cessation program prior to pursuing cosmetic acupuncture.
I understand that life gets hectic and things happen. Please give me 24 hours notice of cancellation in fairness and courtesy to my time and to allow other patients the opportunity to schedule a healing session. If you cancel under 24 hours in advance but reschedule to another time, you will not be charged. For no-shows and appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours' notice and not rescheduled, you will be charged the full cost of the treatment time.
"Do you take insurance?"
I do not bill insurance companies directly, but I will give you a receipt after your treatment if you want to submit it to your insurance company for reimbursement. Check your insurance company's policy regarding coverage for acupuncture, or call them if you're unsure. Although some Pennsylvania insurers are starting to cover acupuncture, particularly for worker's comp or auto accident claims, most do not. Also, you can use your HSA or FSA to pay for acupuncture. Check with your employer.
