Demetra and patientGetting started: Many people begin acupuncture treatment because they have a health issue or issue they would like to focus on. I suggest making an initial appointment, and then at the conclusion of that we can discuss a treatment plan and set up regular visits for a few weeks or months. You are also welcome to schedule an appointment to get a tune-up, maintain your health, and relax. If you have questions about how acupuncture can help with any kind of problem, please don’t hesitate to ask.  am always available to check in by phone, email, and in person.

Timing: In-home visits last an hour. We will check in about your health and progress, then you will settle in comfortably in one of my zero-gravity reclining chairs or massage table (or you are welcome to be treated in a chair you already have). After needling, I will remain nearby completing my notes while you rest (no need to entertain me!). The acupuncture needles are generally left in place for 20-45 minutes, and then I will remove them and schedule your next appointment before leaving.

Scheduling: Currently, I take appointments Monday through Friday. The earliest appointment is 12:30, the last at 5pm.

The easiest way to schedule with me is to send me an email with a few times (ie, “Monday after 2pm or Tuesday between 1 and 5”) and I will then find a spot for you. As a mobile practice, I do my best to group nearby appointments together, to reduce my driving and keep me on time! I will always do my best to arrive at our scheduled time but thank you for understanding that driving around these hills can sometimes take longer or shorter than planned.

Schedule a group: If you want to set up an appointment at your home along with a friend, neighbor, spouse, or family member, even better! I offer a discount on the sliding scale for two or more people seen together. I can see 1-6 people within a 60-90 minute time frame, and can bring up to six recliner chairs to your space. Just let me know when you are scheduling how many people will be present.

Treatment Cost: The sliding scale is meant to make my services affordable. I trust you to pay what works for you any time I am treating you. The scale is based on travel time from my home on Gualala Ranch, and is as follows:

Gualala Ranch: For one person: $25-50, sliding scale; for two or more people, $20+ each

Seaview Ranch, Navarro Ranch, and Timber Cove (and nearby areas): For one person: $50-75, sliding scale; for two or more people, $40+ each

Jenner, Cazadero Highway, north of Salt Point: For one person: $60-75, sliding scale; for two or more people, $50+ each
