Acupuncture for the entire family.
Located on the corner of SW Hall and 10/Farmington in the Hall Street Station Building with ample, free, off-street parking. My office is on the second floor with elevator accessibility (be warned the elevator makes a terrible noise but is perfectly safe!) (4530 SW Hall Blvd. - click to see a map)
Chinese medicine for adults, elderly and children. I work to help individuals of all backgrounds, ages, sizes and abilities to achieve better health and a sense of ease in life. Acupuncture is commonly used for stress-relief, pain-relief, and to assist with a variety of common and uncommon health concerns. It is a time-tested, low risk approach to prevention and healing. I practice from a social justice lens and a HAES (Health at Every Size) informed approach. I am also member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health and staff with the Worlsey Institute.
I am currently able to bill many insurances, accept HSA cards, credit/cash/checks and offer a time of service discount. I am also able to generate super bills.
What to Expect
If you are new to acupuncture, you can expect to be asked a lot of questions about your health, your body, and your daily routine. I will NOT weight you. We will spend about 45 minutes discussing your current and past health status. This allows me to better determine a treatment plan for you that addresses your individual needs. After this, I will take some basic health measurements such as blood pressure and heart rate. I will check your pulse, feeling both of your wrists. At this point, I will begin treatment which usually includes moxa and needling. (See the FAQ section under the Resources tab for more information and the Before/After Your Treatment pages too).
My office building is wheelchair accessible. The door to my office is not. Please let me know if you need assistance around this. My office building does not have gender neutral bathrooms, please let me know if I can support you in this until I find a location that does have this. Our office has one comfy, armless chair in our waiting area.
If you have had acupuncture before, my treatment style may be different than you are used to. Rather than resting alone with the needles for 20 minutes after I've inserted them, I may burn moxa on the point and quickly needle the point without leaving the needle to rest. I may be actively treating you the entire treatment time.
