Why We are Unique and the Best

There are several reasons that make your treatments unique at our clinic and separate us from western medical services and other acupuncture clinics:

 

  1.  You receive an individualized treatment plan that addresses your unique health issues rather than a standard or quick fix solution.  We do an extensive intake and get to know our patients.

2.  Your first visit is 1 to 1.5 hours and follow-up visits are approximately 1 hour.

3.  We take the time to explain and educate you on your diagnosis from the Chinese medical perspective.

4.  In addition to your acupuncture treatment, you receive free nutritional consultation, herbal consultation, cupping, electrical stimulation, Tui Na, exercise recommendations and lifestyle suggestions as needed.

5.  You can contact Scot or Stephanie via email, text or telephone with any questions and he/she will contact you with a timely response to meet your needs.

6.  As a patient you will receive monthly to quarterly email with interesting health issues or topics that look at health from the TCM perspective.  We blog on our website with health articles for educational purposes as well.

7.  If requested, you will receive a patient ledger with your treatments and payments that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

8.  You can pay via cash, check or credit cards.  We accept insurance.  Currently we are in network with United Health Care and Aetna.  However, if you insurance accepts acupuncture we can bill them out-of-network.  There are treatment packages available as well.

9.  All herbs are GMP certified and can be tailored to meet your needs.

    Digital Meridian Imaging: 

    What is AcuGraph?

    The AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging system is a computerized tool used to analyze and document the energetic status of the acupuncture meridians.  I use the system in a short exam by touching a moistened probe to acupuncture points on your hands and feet.  The results are statistically compiled and shown on various types of graphs for analysis.

    The AcuGraph system allows me to measure and analyze the energy balance of each acupuncture meridian.  Armed with this information, I can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible.

    What does my P.I.E score mean?Within the P.I.E. (Personal Integrated Energetics) chart, each wedge of the circle represents one meridian pathway. Those shown in green are balanced and functioning properly.  Colors that do not extend to the edge of the circle identify and classify your meridian energy imbalances.A perfect score of 100 reflects completed balance and unimpeded flow of your Qi energy.  A lower score means there are various imbalances that you and I can address together.
