  • First treatment: $90 (1.5hr; includes TCM assessment of presenting complaint, review of health history, and acupuncture treatment)

Please note: I do not double-book patients and I prefer to not charge for missed appointments as I understand sometimes "life happens." I ask in return that patients notify me as soon as possible, preferably at least 24 hours prior, if they need to cancel their appointment. I also ask that patients be considerate of other patients' appointments following theirs and arrive no later than 15 minutes.
