$40 Acupuncture Treatments!

That's right.  Get acupuncture for what ails you for as much as a few craft beers!  Here is a short list of what acupuncture can very likely help you with:

  • Acute and chronic pain (especially neck, back, shoulder, hip, and knee)
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Digestive issues
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Poor sleep
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Colds and Flu
  • Smoking Cessation

Given the very specialized nature of my practice, and the cost for that specialization, I wanted to offer an affordable healthcare option to the Truckee, Lake Tahoe, and Reno community.   

Distal Point Acupuncture (DPA) is a methodology evolved clinically over a decade of treating pain and other disorders in my clinic.  It is based on a combination of old family acupuncture systems like Tung Style, modern methods like Sports Medicine Acupuncture, TCM, and a dozen years of personal clinical experimentation.  Usually no more than 10 needles are inserted on arms and legs from the knee and elbow down (some cases other easily accessible point are used).  

I can accommodate 3-5 patients per hour in 2 gravity chairs, regular chairs, and the treatment table.  Please register your time slot following the link below and tea will be available while you wait. Treatments will not include many of the services I provide (such as DCT, postural evaluation, postural and corrective exercises, Tui Na, local area treatment methodologies, moxa, e-stim, etc) but will only be distal point acupuncture.  This will be done in a group setting and is not private.  If you have knee pain (for example), please bring shorts so you are comfortable in front of others getting treatment.   If you are not comfortable with other people hearing your health issues, community acupuncture may not be for you and a private treatment may be more suitable.
