everyone! In the acupuncture world, there are two major business models
for an acupuncture clinic: community acupuncture and private practice acupuncture.
This is acupuncture done in one communal room. Patients rest in
a chair, with acupuncture
done only on the front side of the body, hands, arms, legs, feet, and
head. In Glens Falls thiscosts $20-30 sliding scale (rate is income
based). In Saratoga Springs this costs $45 and in NYC it costs $20-50
sliding scale. This is typically what you would pay for acupuncture only.
This is acupuncture focusing on one patient (so practitioners
1-2 patients per hour). Treatments last one hour, and cost
$65-$125. Acupuncture is performed on both the front and back side of the
body. Private acupuncture often involves herbal consultations, with
herbs paid for as an additional cost.
I have developed Acupuncture Nirvana as a hybrid of both styles. Treatments
are full body, and there is privacy with screens surrounding each patients massage table.
I use cupping,
heat, TENS, acupuncture, and give out herbal and
advice. All for only is $20.
As a comparison, cupping alone costs
$50 at North Country
Holistic. I just add it in if I think
it. I have been doing front and back treatments when needed.
have done many specials this year, and then often renewed the
same discounted price when more sessions were purchased,
there was not a special discount or sale currently
offered. Many of you
pay only $11-12 for each visit.
This is not a sustainable business strategy. I really want to stay in business. However,
I also want to stay true to my vision of healing and providing affordable
acupuncture using an unique style.(a hybrid of community and private practice).
With this in mind, I am instituting a new rate structure that is going
to be in place for the long term:
- $20 per side (front OR back)
- $40 for 2 sides (front AND back)
- $20 for herbal consultations (lasts 15-20 minutes and does not include price of herbs, but I will send you an email so you can buy them through the internet)
- Cupping and heat will be included in treatments, but if you only want cupping and heat, it is $20.
- $10 per side for veterans and
students and anyone who rents a space at the Shirt Factory.
- Once discounts or specials are used, you will return to the regular prices.
The new rates at Acupuncture Nirvana still offer a better value
you can find elsewhere, while ensuring that I can make a
living and stay in
business over the long term.
I truly hope this
makes sense to everyone and does not upset or
I just wanted to explain why I can't keep offering continuous discounts. With this change in mind, I am offering one more special.
December 13-December 25. You can
purchase 2 treatments for $28. You can
purchase up to 10 of these packages for a total of 20
treatments. There will not be a special offered again until July 4, 2015. See below column to purchase the specials. Hopefully this will make the change easier.
Thank you so much for your patronage!! I truly appreciate
you allowing me to be a part of your lives!
