Why We Are Changing June 1:
Part of the wonder of acupuncture is the relief and help it provides for things that are going wrong in a person's health.
Examining tongue and pulse, asking questions, treating both front and back are part of a thorough acupuncture treatment, creating the best results possible.
Picking one side only, just doing a few points...these things can assist one's health, but they aren't using this medicine to it's fullest capacity.
While low cost treatments can help, they are done quickly, and they lack the thoroughness of a more extensive treatment. The low cost experience can often miss out on diagnosing the person as a whole and therefore, treating accordingly.
The fact is, the acupuncturist only gets a few minutes with you. As a result, they do not have the opportunity to spend more time than that because they have to move on to the next patient.
I have been practicing 7 years as an acupuncturist. I want my clinic to emphasize quality treatments, not just low cost ones. This is a form of medicine that can help many things, and I want to use it to it's fullest to help improve the quality of your life, as well as your acupuncture experience.
I have provided treatments for the most common, simple problems with the most common, simple treatments. This is what community acupuncture does well. This is what is appropriate for an acupuncturist in their first few years or newly graduated.
I am looking to develop my business to the next level of care and service. I want to be your go to acupuncturist. When you are really sick, anxious, in pain...I want to be the one who provides you the best treatments tailored specifically to you.
I have thought long and hard as to how to accomplish this.
I currently treat a patient for a half hour. I will be extending that to between an hour to an hour and a half.
With this additional time, I will be treating both the front and the back, as well as providing cupping and heat.
I will create treatment plans and progress reports, that I will give each patient, to explain what my findings are and how many treatments they may need.
When you come in for a treatment, we will be working to improve your blood circulation, strengthen your immunity, decrease your stress levels, harmonize your digestion, detoxify your kidneys and liver, and reduce your pain...in addition to whatever else you came in for.
With this in mind, we are switching from being a fast paced, community type clinic, to providing a more quality therapeutic experience.
To facilitate this, I will begin accepting insurance effective June 1, 2016.
I have endeavored to gain approval from all insurance companies. However, should your insurance not cover acupuncture, the cash rate for all of this is $45.
Treatments of this type are usually $60-$100. Even community acupuncture, which is a simple one sided treatment, is done for $20-40 at Adirondack Acupuncture, and $20-30 at The Acupuncture Studio.
I feel this price is offering you high quality acupuncture treatments at a price that is significantly less than the going rate for what we are providing.
Thank you for sticking with us while we improve our business model. We are so thankful to be part of your life!
