Semi-private Acupuncture Visits – Oakland office only

We offer 50 minute acupuncture treatments in a large room with partitions. This is typical of hospital style acupuncture in China and we have elected to offer this in order to make acupuncture more accessible and affordable.

Ask us about reduced rates for group treatment including providing service to support groups and not-for-profit organizations.

Discounts available for acupuncture treatment and consultation paid for at time of service.

Herbal Consultation
Billed at $25 per 15 minute interval (plus the cost of herbs)
We can often accomplish a lot in 15 minutes!

Herbal Dispensary
The cost of herbs and supplements is added to that of your appointment. I stock many Western and Chinese herbs in bulk, liquid and powdered extracts, and capsules, along with a variety of supplements. If I don’t stock a remedy that is important for your treatment, I can arrange for shipping or send you to a local shop for the resources you need. You can see many of our products at Five Flavors Herbs.


Payments are due at the time of service until coverage is verified. Please contact your insurance company to inquire about acupuncture coverage. If you provide me with your insurance information I can make an inquiry within 48 hours. I am willing to submit insurance claims on verified plans or give you a super-bill to send in yourself. I am also willing to bill pre-approved Workers Compensation claims.
