Forms, Fees, and Important Tips for New Patients

Thank you for your interest in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  I’m passionate about what I do and believe my mission in life is to help others.  My colleagues and I are experienced in treating a variety of conditions using a combination of time-tested, effective modalities, including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, massage, diet, and qigong therapy.  I use a holistic approach to help restore, promote and maintain health and vitality.



Health Insurance

Patients often ask, “Do you take insurance?” The answer is yes as long as your policy covers acupuncture. Insurance benefits vary depending on your specific policy even within the same company. We are in-network providers for CareFirst, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, and Cigna, but also accept insurance from other companies. Once you’ve scheduled an appointment and filled out the intake forms package, we will check for you. We should have the answer for you within 24-48 hours. If you wish to find out sooner, please call your insurance company directly and ask the following:

(1) Is there is a deductible?
(2) Has it been met? If not, how much remains to be paid?
(3) Is there a yearly maximum on acupuncture coverage?
(4) Is there a lifetime maximum on acupuncture?
(5) Are there restrictions or exceptions to treatment (e.g., can an out-of-network licensed acupuncturist perform the treatment?).


Fees will vary, depending on the types and length of treatments. Typically, an exam & consultation costs $85, and an acupuncture treatment costs $90. So your first visit would be $175. However, you can take advantage of our limited time offer of a FREE COUPON that’s good for one free Initial Exam and save $85. But, please note that the coupon cannot be applied to acupuncture treatments or other services. In other words, with the coupon your first visit will only cost $90.

Get Well & Do Right!

Each year we donate 10% or more of our Clinic profits to one or more charities that benefit veterans who have been injured in combat while serving our country. We also offer free treatments as well as free qigong classes to veterans suffering from the physical, psychological or emotional wounds of war sustained during combat. We are providers for the Veterans Choice Program.

Preparing for your first appointment

Please wear loose clothes. If wearing pants, you should be able to roll them above your knees. While it’s not necessary, you might wish to bring a pair of shorts if you don’t want your clothes wrinkled. You should have breakfast for a morning appointment or lunch for an afternoon appointment. The treatment works better if you have some energy to move around and are not overly hungry or overly full during your appointment. Please don’t wear strong perfumes or colognes because these scents may linger in the waiting area and treatment rooms, and can affect other patients who are allergic or sensitive to them. Please refrain from using your cell phone or talking loudly in the clinic to help us protect your privacy and as well as to maintain a relaxing environment. We also recommend that you don’t engage in any strenuous exercise or heavy physical activity for at least six hours following your appointment to give your body a chance to rest and to optimize the effectiveness of your treatment (which continues to take effect even after you leave our clinic.)  If you wish to be treated for a pain condition, please don’t take any pain medications on the day of your visit because they will dull the effects of the acupuncture treatment. After your visit, we hope you’ll feel better than when you first came in, with a sense of deep calm and relaxation.

Our Location

Our clinic is located at the intersection of Sterling Road and Elden Street (see map and photo of the front of our building.) It’s just a few stop lights from the World Gate Center, one mile from the Dulles Toll Road, and adjacent to the Dulles Crossroads Shopping Center (which has Starbucks, CVS, Fresh World, Guapos, and Mellow Mushroom). Our building is in the middle of a two-story brick condo complex with multiple entrances.There’s another business with a similar name to ours on the other end of the building, so please look for the big ACUPUNCTURE sign on the side of the building – that’s where you’ll find the main entrance to our clinic office.

Book an appointment

If not done so already, please click this link to book an appointment online. You can select a date and time on the online calendar. Once your appointment is confirmed, you’ll receive an email with a password that will enable you to fill out an online forms package for new patients. Completing the forms is easy, efficient, secure, and HIPPA compliant. It includes a Health History Questionnaire, a Consent Form, a Recommendation for Diagnostic Examination, a Fees & Payments Policy, and an Insurance Billing Form. It’s important that you go over each question carefully and check off or fill in every question that applies to you even if you don’t think they are directly related to your health concerns.  Your answers help form the basis of our diagnosis so we can devise the best treatment plan for you.  We treat the whole person by getting to the root of your problems and not just the symptoms.

Please don’t hesitate to email, text or call me if you have any questions.
