We have a unique two-part new patient procedure. Unlike some of our competitors, we pride ourselves on spending sufficient time with our patients to fully understand their health concerns and to put together a personalized treatment plan. The initial consultation and follow-up session include 2 acupuncture treatments and cost $320. 


The initial consultation consists of a thorough and comprehensive intake where the doctor will go over your medical history and will ask you a series of health and lifestyle questions. Your acupuncturist may perform diagnostic tests that will help lead to a diagnosis. Acupuncture needles will then be inserted into specific areas of the body and left in place for 30 minutes. While the needles are in, it is best to lay still to avoid any unnecessary pain from shifting needles.

If necessary, herbs, cupping, or other modalities may be used to augment the healing process.

We ask that you give us 90 minutes for this session.


At the follow-up visit, we not only check your progress but the doctor will explain the nature of your condition and discuss a personalized care plan that we’ve put together for you. This usually takes 60 minutes. 


Make sure you have eaten something before your treatment, as we will not administer acupuncture on an empty stomach. 

Please make sure to complete the Online Intake Form. Upon confirmation of your appointment, you will receive an email to complete our New Patient Intake Form. Please set-up your Jane account to complete the intake forms before your initial treatment. It may be long, but the more detailed information we receive, the better treatment we can provide you. If you do not have a chance to complete the paperwork, please arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow sufficient time to finish all paperwork. 

Watch our video below about what to expect at the initial visit.
