Acupuncture Nirvana - holistic medicine for pain

Thanks for visiting!  Welcome to Acupuncture Nirvana.
When you visit, you'll relax on the heated massage tables with shoji screen room dividers surrounding each table for privacy.  Healing music is playing, and you relax and let the acupuncture take your pain and stress away. 
Acupuncture treatments are done for:
  • pain, muscle spasm, and injury
    (neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, ankle pain, knee pain, etc.)
  • tendonitis, carpal tunnel, plantar fascitis
  • stress and anxiety
  • migraines and headaches
  • digestion problems like IBS and Chrones
  • autoimmune issues like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis
  • PMS and cramping
  • pregnancy issues (like carpal tunnel during pregnancy, back pain, induction of birth)
  • infertility
  •  and so much more! 
What does it feel like?
You will feel tingly at first, and then blissfully relaxed. Acupuncture has been proven to stimulate the release of endorphins; your body’s natural happy chemicals.   
You won’t have as many aches and pains. Your breathing, circulation and digestion will improve; your mind will become calmer and more focused; your wounds will heal more quickly; you will have more energy during the day and sleep easier at night.    
There are no chemicals involved aside from those produced by your own body. Also, acupuncture stimulates your body to flush out toxins, which is important to staying healthy. There are no side effects to acupuncture, only side benefits. While you may come in looking to solve a specific problem, you will eventually notice that you are feeling better in other ways as well.

Hi everyone!  In the acupuncture world, there are two major business models for an acupuncture clinic: community acupuncture and private practice acupuncture.

Community 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.

 Private Acupuncture:
This is acupuncture focusing on one patient (so practitioners treat
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.

Acupuncture Nirvana:
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 supplement
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 you need
it.  I have been doing front and back treatments when needed.
I have done many specials this year, and then often renewed the
same discounted price when more sessions were purchased,
even though 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
than 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
offend anyone.  

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!
