Initial New Patient Appointment with Marny Culpepper, LAC
Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine that has been around for, literally, thousands of years. It’s founded on the idea that the body is able to heal itself. For some, this is a mind-boggling idea..even though we experience it every day. You cut yourself, there is a scab in a day to repair the damage. A similar principle is at play with acupuncture. Hair-fine needles are inserted along acupuncture meridians to treat energetic imbalances that might lead to chronic disease or pain. Biochemicals released beneath the skin’s surface, from the insertion of the acupuncture needles, may contribute to the results that acupuncture patients experience. This, put simply, is to say that acupuncture gets tangible results clinically and in science-backed studies. Many patients report experiencing the immediate benefits of their acupuncture session. Those benefits can include: relaxation, improved sleep, decreased pain, and optimized digestion.
Marny will conduct a health history intake before giving you acupuncture. The end of your session may include cupping, when indicated. Any time requested for cupping beyond the cupping session provided is considered “extensive” and must be booked as a separate service.
Please come prepared for acupuncture and cupping appointment by having eaten (but not over-stuffed!) and free from alcohol and drugs. Abstain from wearing any perfume or fragrances to the clinic. No special clothing is required though we do suggest you wear undergarments.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Allow 1.5 hours for the initial in-office appointment.
Cost: $150. We do not bill insurance directly for this session, but we can provide you a super-bill to be reimbursed for the acupuncture portion if applicable.
The best way to see results is to have at least 4-6 weekly sessions and then reassess your health and situation.
Follow Up Appointments
Once we have determined your treatment plan, a specific number of follow up appointments will be suggested for you. These appointments are one hour and include acupuncture treatment, an herbal consultation, and if suitable, additional bodywork such as gua sha and cupping.
Cost: $110, Can be billed through insurance
