What appointment do I need?
Traditional Acupuncture New Patient
Traditional (Balance Method) Acupuncture takes place in our communal room that has six zero gravity chairs. Balance Method Acupuncture can be used for internal/systemic problems like stress, hormone imbalance, digestion, mood disorders, fibromyalgia, and general health and wellbeing as well as pain management. If you are having complicated symptoms or would like to focus on internal problems as well as pain issues this is your style.
TA Maintenance Treatment
This is a follow-up treatment in the community room. This treatment consists of a very quick check-in followed by a traditional acupuncture treatment. Patients can sit 30-60 minutes after the needles are inserted.
TA Extended Treatment
This treatment is also a follow-up treatment in the community room. If you need more one-on-one time with your practitioner for a more detailed check-in or we have chosen to add 1-3 motor-points to your treatment (accessible in a chair) please book this treatment. Required if you have not been seen in over 6 months or we have added motor points to your traditional treatment.
Traveler's Acupuncture does not require a New Patient appointment. It is in the communal room and is intended for travelers from out of town to keep up with their acupuncture. Best for uncomplicated conditions consists of a short consultation and treatment. This treatment does not replace a NEW PATIENT TREATMENT.
Orthopedic Acupuncture New Patient
Orthopedic Acupuncture is done in a private room. If you are interested in Dry Needling or an approach that starts by looking at muscle disfunction and the nervous system then this treatment is for you. Treatments consist of a mix of Trigger Point Acupuncture (Dry Needling), Motor Point Acupuncture, Electro, and Neurofunctional Acupuncture. Some people describe it as a deep tissue massage with needles. Some Patients have a soreness similar to post work out soreness after treatments.
OA Returning Patient
This is a follow-up treatment to the Orthopedic Acupuncture usually about 30min.
