Our affordable fees will enable you to get acupuncture, custom herbal medicine, hypnotherapy, nutrition guidance, C.O.R.E. counseling, and a wealth of insight and information accumulated over the course of 30 years working in natural health care. 

We do not accept insurance plans because the cost of processing insurance claims would dramatically increase the cost of services at our clinic.

Acupuncture Fees - New Patients

Your first visit includes a private consultation with examination and evaluation of your health condition, a 20 minute acupuncture treatment appropriate for your condition, and, if appropriate, a prepared herbal medicine recommendation and medicinal food recommendations appropriate for your condition (cost of herbs not included). 


Acupuncture - Follow Up Treatments

Standard or laser acupuncture:  $60

After I evaluate your condition and insert the needles in appropriate locations, mostly on forearms, wrists, legs and feet, you enjoy what I call an "acu-nap" for 20-30 minutes.  Research and clinical experience has determined that 20-30 minutes is the optimal duration for an effective treatment.  Frequent twenty-minute treatments (two or three times weekly) are proven in clinical research to be most effective for improvement of conditions that can be treated by acupunctureThey are standard practice for acupuncture in Chinese acupuncture hospitals and they save you time and money.

Custom Herbal Consultation

For people who only want custom herbal medicine / tea.  Your first visit includes an examination and evaluation of your health condition, from which I can determine the herbal medicine prescription.  The medicine itself may be a prepared (pill) formula or a custom tea formula made from high-quality powdered herbal extracts that dissolve almost instantly in hot water (no cooking necessary). Herbal medicine itself is an additional $10-30 per week supply depending on formula.

First visit:  $40 consultation + herbs ($10-30 per week supply).

Refills (for custom tea formulations):  $10
