Not all acupuncture treatment is the same.
To realize the full benefit of this ancient oriental therapy, you need a practitioner fully qualified in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I have studied TCM extensively and am board-certified not only in acupuncture but also in oriental medicine and Chinese herbology. This training enables me to provide a more integrated, balanced approach to your specific problem, whether it’s pain relief, digestive disorders, or chronic respiratory illness—an approach that other oriental medicine providers may not employ.
Harmony Integrative Medicine is born of the belief that blending the trusted traditions of ancient wisdom with the best of modern biomedicine affords a truly comprehensive path to health. With that in mind, we strive to work closely with the western physicians of our patients to coordinate a balanced health care plan uniquely suited to their needs.
Increasingly, American patients and doctors alike are coming to realize that conventional biomedicine is superb when it comes to surgery, emergency and trauma. However, alternative medicines like Acupuncture and Oriental medicine often are more effective for chronic, degenerative conditions like heart disease, arthritis, endocrine and metabolic disease and for more common ailments such as asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, uro-genital disorders, headaches and allergies, to name a few.
Harmony Integrative Medicine provides advanced acupuncture and herbal medicines using the treatment model practiced in China. This model allows us to offer this medicine to the whole community with significantly reduced fees.
Our practice model is the way acupuncture was designed to be received and the same treatment experience that is practiced in China; that being when acupuncture therapy is administered daily or every other day, for several days in a row, followed by a short break of 1- days, then another course of therapy as needed until the symptoms have been alleviated. This model produces significant relief and resolution in 1-3 weeks rather than the 10-20 weeks or more it generally takes with the once-per-week American model and at a fraction of the cost!
In addition to our lovely private treatment rooms , our patients may choose to relax comfortably in our serene semi-private group setting, fully clothed, on cushioned zero-gravity recliners, at a substantial savings. This setting with soft lighting, music and the sound of soothing fountains makes for an even more effective treatment as the dynamic of Qi flow is improved exponentially.
Using this model we are able to provide truly excellent treatment, yet offer the medicine to more in-need people by reducing the cost per session dramatically.
OUR FEE SCHEDULE: Is based on a seven-day period of time we refer to as a “treatment week”. The first appointment is $90 ($45 examination and consultation and $45 treatment). A second appointment in a treatment week is $35 and subsequent treatments within the week are $30.
We do offer private rooms for those that require them at $65 per treatment.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
An extensive medical history, examination and report of findings will be completed during your initial appointment. An acupuncture treatment may follow this exam or be scheduled for the following day. Acupuncture treatments generally last 40-60 minutes whether in a private room or in the group room. Most patients report a sense of deep relaxation and well being; some even fall asleep during treatment.
Call today to give yourself and loved ones the gift of health and harmony.
