FAQ

What should I expect? 

During the treatments, clients often report a feeling of “calm & relaxation”, and get a restful and rejuvenating nap.

Treatments build on each other and after a half dozen or a dozen treatments, depending on the condition and how long it has been going on, enough progress has been made that symptoms subside as the underlying cause(s) are corrected and then treatments can be less frequent.  Maintenance treatments can be as infrequent as 4 times a year and are essential for long term well-being.

Acupuncture is perfectly safe and brings with it only pleasant side effects. For example, a client reported, “I had a lower GI problem that I forgot to mention, and now I find that it is resolved as well”!  Thats what I call a pleasant side effect.

For your first visit allow 1.5 hours for evaluation and treatment and arrive 15 minutes earlier in order to fill out health questionnaires. Subsequent visits will take about an hour.

Does Acupuncture hurt? 

Generally there is little to no pain involved with the insertion of the needles & only a momentary sensation. Sometimes there is not even a sensation of any kind with the needle and client wonders if the needle is in. Sometimes, when there is a significant block in a meridian, there is a slight, or even a somewhat significant sensation of pain for a moment as the block is released & balance begins to be restored.

Insurance 

I am a preferred provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield,  United Health, and Cigna

Acupuncture is increasingly covered by various insurance companies these days, and the only way to know if your insurance covers acupuncture is to contact them directly as different policies cover differently.  You can also call us at (202)768-7747 and we can check into your coverage and submit directly your claim, if you are covered.  Alternatively, we accept payment in the form of cash, check, or any of the credit cards.

If you are not in the above mentioned insurance plans yet have acupuncture coverage, at the end of every treatment, you will receive a comprehensive receipt with codes and procedures that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, or to submit to your flex spending plan

Having a great health care system doesn’t have to be a long and winding road, it can however be a beautiful one
