Modalities

Have you ever wondered what are in an acupuncturist's bag of tricks?  What else do we do other than sticking needle in your body? 

Quite a bit, actually.  By the scope of our medical license, acupuncturists are an amazing versatile bunch.  We have at our disposal a wide range of powerful and effective modalities for both internal and external applications.  By internal, I mean herbal medicines; and by external, I mean all the modalities that an acupuncturist perform on the external surface of your body.  I generally prefer to call the external medicine as manual modalities because it first emphasizes the fact that they need to be performed by the hands of the practitioner, second, it differentiates it from something like herbs, which you need to ingest to reap their therapeutic benefits.

Here's a list of the modalities that I employ in my practice.

Spring Special $49 for All Patients

I have a wonderful offer for you!

From now until the end of April, all patients paying out-of-pockets will pay only $49 per acupuncture session with me, regardless whether you are new or returning patients.  That’s a 62% and 48% savings for new and return patients, respectively.  There is no limit on the number of sessions you can use.  If you like the offer and would like to purchase additional sessions for future use, I offer a special four-pack for $196 and that good until the end of 2017.  The offer is limited to service only, any herbal supplements will be extra.

Don’t put off taking care of yourself any longer!  Pass on the words!  When you are ready, hit the Appointment button!
