Do you accept insurance?
For auto accident PIP claims with a referral from a primary care practitioner, I can directly bill the insurance provider. For all other claims, such as standard medical insurance, patients pay out of pocket and then I provide an insurance statement with all the necessary coding. This is then submitted by the patient, and reimbursement is sent by the insurance company directly to the patient.
What is the cost for a session?
Day of service rates for all modalities:
60 minutes: $85
75 minutes: $105
90 minutes: $125
Can you do both acupuncture and massage in the same session?
Absolutely! Depending on the patient’s needs and desires, each session can be customized. I have many clients who come in for only acupuncture or only massage; I also often do acupuncture and massage in combination.
How many treatments will I need?
This varies from person to person, and also depends on the condition treated. In general, acute conditions respond more quickly to treatment, while chronic conditions take longer to treat. For an acute condition, 4-6 treatments is often adequate. A chronic condition might necessitate 6-12. Everyone responds differently, however. After the first three sessions, I can usually make a general assessment of what to expect in terms of a broader treatment plan.
How long have you been in practice?
I began my practice as a massage therapist in 1996, and then in 2000 I added Chinese Medicine into my general practice.
