Most clinic visits are this type. You may choose this option for your first visit, or opt for a longer option depending on your needs.
1 Hour 45 Minutes
If you want more education up front or have extra questions for me, this option gives you an extra half hour chatting / education time plus the full acupuncture session. An Extended Visit requires me to block 2 regular patient visits to provide us purely you-focused time together.
DELUXE FIRST VISIT
2 Hours 30 Minutes
If you want to cover multiple key DIY concepts all up front, or have lots of questions, you'll get an extra hour and a half of chatting / education time plus the full acupuncture session. Due to the length of a Deluxe First Visit, they must be scheduled outside of my regular clinic hours.
$275 - Daytime Visits Only
TIME SENSITIVE VISIT
Need to get in right away? I'm happy to come in during "off" hours to see you when possible.
$160 M - F
PARTNER / SUPPORT ADD-ON VISIT
Sometimes things can feel like they're all on you. If your partner or another support person wants to come to a session with you, they are always welcome to listen to any education for free. Add a seated mini auricular (ear) acupuncture treatment for them in addition to your regular visit so you can both learn and relax together. Additional paperwork must be completed in advance.
HOUSE CALL VISIT
Postpartum? In labor? On bed rest? Let me come to you! I'll spend 90 minutes at your home, birthing center or hospital and drive up to 20 miles each way to bring a treatment (and balance) to you.
$200 M - F
OUT OF TOWN VISIT
Coming from a distance? Working with another acupuncturist, but craving more education? I work with women from around the country and can arrange a 1/2 day or full day consultation and get you all the self-care and education you need in one fell swoop. Partners welcome. On-site overnight accommodations can be arranged.

Take-Home Post Session Add-On
If I cannot stay for the full post-transfer session due to my schedule or you want to save on cost, you may opt for a mini "take-home" treatment instead of a full post treatment. I'll place tiny, painless sticker needles on appropriate points, then you are able to remove them at home. Watch a video featuring these special Pyonex stick-on needles.
Pre-ivf phone class
When I am doing PRE & POST acupuncture for IVF I always build-in extra education including:
What to expect on your transfer day (bladder prep, basic steps, etc.)
Embryology & Implantation 101 (what’s happening when and how!)
Lifestyle Considerations for the 9 day wait (lifting, exercise, caffeine, etc.)
Stress coping skills for the wait and beyond (how not to drive yourself bonkers)
If I am NOT able to do your acupuncture and you would still like to do this 45 minute phone class as an a la carte option to supplement your big day I am happy to do what I can. I do suggest partners listen in on this call when at all possible (it’s nice when both people are on the same page and working together). Please email for availability or ask in person when in the office.
$60 if I am NOT doing your transfer acupuncture
Included in above acupuncture prices and NO extra fee
Pricing / Availability Notes
Established Life Healing Life patients already have their pattern assessments and monitoring covered during regular visits, so you'll see rates for existing patients are slightly lower. While I do my best to help as many women as possible, I do prioritize my regular patient needs and may not be able to accommodate all requests. In other words, all visits are subject to availability.
