About Insurance

Community acupuncture costs less than most insurance co-pays ($25-$40). Because we work on a sliding scale we are not allowed to bill your insurance company–their rules, not ours. We’re happy to provide you with a receipt though, so you can submit the bill yourself. Just ask when you come in.

Help make your experience a good one

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. You can also download the forms in English and Spanish below.

  • Please DO NOT wear perfume, aftershave, scented lotions, or fragrant hair products; some of our patients are highly sensitive to strong scents. (We appreciate your help in making Center Point accessible to everyone.)

  • Please turn off your cell phone.

  • Before your first treatment you’ll meet privately with your acupuncturist  to discuss your health history, address any concerns, and ask a few questions to help determine a course of treatment.

  • Please wear loose clothing so you can roll up your sleeves above your elbows and pant legs above your knees, remove your shoes and socks, then sit back and relax.

The Routine

We treat everyone in a shared space, in recliners. No need to disrobe.

Your first visit starts with a private consultation with your acupuncturist to discuss your needs and suggest a treatment plan that includes how often to come in and when to evaluate your progress. Then you’ll enter the treatment room, choose a recliner, remove your shoes and socks, roll up your pants to your knees, your sleeves to your elbows, lean back and relax.

Conversation in the treatment room happens at a whisper or a low voice–most likely there will be at least one other person having a restful “acu-nap”.

After the needles go in, just relax and let them do the work. You can stay as long as you like; most people stay between 30-60 minutes. When you’re ready to leave, signal by pushing the button that’s connected to the armrest, we’ll come and remove your needles, and off you go.

We have ambient sounds of nature playing in the treatment room. If you prefer your own music please bring your own listening device. (People do snore sometimes so if that bothers you earphones are a good idea.) Feel free to bring your own neck pillows or blankets if you prefer them to ours. We won’t be offended.
