How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms. It creates a signal that goes directly to the brain and communicates something is wrong and the brain responds by sending the appropriate healing responders through your fascia, nerves, hormones, and gases.

How much does acupuncture cost?

The investment for your first appointment is $165. During this appointment a scan will be ran with the Qest4 machine & a Chinese Medical evaluation will be done. If we feel like we're not the best solution for your problem, you will not be charged & I will refer you to a better fit for your condition. Average appointment costs range from $120-165.
