Stress Relief Treatments

Acupuncture is one of the best ways to relieve stress by calming the mind and helping the body to relax and restore its natural balance. During this 60-minute appointment, you practitioner will focus on general stress relief rather than reviewing your health history and other health concerns.

Immune-Strenghtening Treatments

With all the pressure we put on ourselves on a daily basis, compounded by the frequent New England weather changes, its no wonder many of us are susceptible to frequent and perpetual colds, coughs, sore throats, allergies and dips in our over-all energy levels. With the 60-minute Immune-Strengthening acupuncture treatments, we will focus on strengthening the foundation of your immune system to help keep you healthy and balanced throughout all the changing seasons. During these appointments, you practitioner will focus on general immune strengthening rather than reviewing your health history and other health concerns.

SCHEDULING Appointments

Patients are seen by appointment only. Please call or email in advance to schedule an appointment. We highly suggest that patients schedule weekly appointments in advance to ensure you are able to reserve times that are most convenient for you.

Payment and Insurance

Payment in full is required at the time of treatment (we are unable to bill insurance as we are out of network providers). For your convenience, we accept cash, check, all debit/credit cards, flexible spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA). Any checks that are returned will be subject to a $25 fee which will require immediate payment.

If your insurance will cover acupuncture, we will gladly provide you with the information you may need for reimbursement so that you can submit your claim directly to your insurance company for self-reimbursement.

We are unable to submit claims to your insurance company as we are considered out of network providers.

Discounts
Discounts are available when 4 60-minute follow-up acupuncture sessions are purchased in advance.
Cancellation and Late Policy

A 24-hour cancellation policy applies to your appointment in order to allow those on the waitlist sufficient time to reserve any newly available appointments. You may email or leave a message on our voicemail system at any time of day to cancel your appointment, and it will date and time stamp your call.

If you are unable to cancel your appointment 24-hours in advance, a cancellation charge for the full treatment fee will charged to the credit card you have provided us on file.

Please do your best to arrive on time for your appointment. If you find that you are running late, please call the clinic to let your practitioner know and we will do our best to accommodate you, depending on schedule availability. If you arrive 15 minutes or later for your appointment, that will be considered a missed appointment.

I have been seeing  Sharon for almost 4 years, including through my pregnancy and postpartum care. I can’t put into words how grateful I am for Sharon’s care and expertise. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and kind. It doesn’t matter what symptoms I’m experiencing, she knows just how to handle them from headaches all the way to insomnia. She is so good for the body and the soul! You will not regret seeing her!
