Insurance:

Insurance companies offer varying levels of coverage. Medicaid & Medicare do not provide coverage. As more and more insurance companies begin to understand the therapeutic benefit & long term cost savings of acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine, insurance coverage will be expanded. You should check with your health insurance company first in order to see if you have eligibility and coverage for acupuncture.

All patients will be provided with an insurance-compatible Superbill. A Superbill is an invoice for your visit that uses standardized codes for all of the treatments performed.  This process requires the patient to pay the full cost of the treatment out-of-pocket at the time of the visit.  The Superbill can thereafter be submitted to your insurance carrier for full or partial reimbursement depending on your policy.

Acupuncture treatment is covered by many insurance companies, while herbal medicine is not commonly covered.  Flex plans usually cover both.

If you are concerned about whether your insurance coverage includes acupuncture, please contact them directly.

Acupuncture is considered a tax-deductible medical expense by the IRS.

What our patients say:

Tinnitus & Digestion

It has been about 4 weeks since I visited your offices in Edwards to receive CranioSacral Therapy and Acupuncture and to tell you, honestly, I have never felt better!
To be specific – I went to visit you because my Tinnitus was pretty severe. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it is not to have that ringing. And in addition, my entire digestive system is so free of bloating and discomfort. I have had no headaches or sinus pressure.
Kellie, the Chinese Herbs you mixed for me – I even like drinking that twice a day. I do not mind the flavor at all and just know it is helping my entire system to feel so much better.
I want to thank you both for listening to my tales about my body and for being so attentive to helping me feel so much better.
I look forward to seeing you both again about mid December.
My sincere thanks, again.

Anxiety Relief

Under Kellie’s care, my anxiety has gone away and I am able to refocus on life. She takes care of me as a whole person – working on my physical conditions as well as the emotional, internal issues. She listens and provides insight into my body through thorough descriptions and explanations. I feel very comfortable and safe with Kellie and her treatments. Thank you!

Golfer’s Elbow and More

When I first met Kellie I had a very sore right elbow from playing golf. I play 4-5 times per week and the soreness really took its toll, not only on my scoring but also on my enjoyment of playing.
I had two acupuncture treatments from Kellie over the next two weeks. During these two weeks the pain began subsiding and was gone in a span of only three weeks. And all this time I continued to play golf.
During my second treatment Kellie asked me about the dryness of my skin. I shaved every day, but was using nothing on my face afterward. Kellie recommended I apply Pearl Cream after shaving. I tried it and it began working wonders. My skin is much smoother and my family and friends say I look 5-10 years younger after using Pearl Cream for just a couple of months.

Sciatica and Hair Loss

I first found Kellie when I was suffering from what I thought was chronic Sciatica pain. After several sessions and some herbs, the pain dissipated and now I rarely have any flare-ups. During one of my sessions, Kellie asked me about any other concerns I had. I mentioned that my fine, thin hair seemed to be getting worse and I was afraid I would end up bald, not dissimilar from my mother. She started me on some herbs that I take three times a day and my hair is now totally different. After about five months, it is now thicker and has more body than ever. I was delighted with the sciatica treatments, but you know how we women are about our hair….I am thrilled.

Carpal Tunnel pain

I had been having Carpal Tunnel symptoms in my left hand and forearm for about 4 months. I had already seen my other doctor and tried many “traditional” methods, but nothing worked until I tried acupuncture. After just one treatment, Kellie was able to get rid of all the pain and numbness that had traveled up my arm. That was almost 4 years ago, and the pain has never come back.
