Better than a massage!! I've been to other places for acupuncture, and nothing compares to Doug. I have several medical issues - including insomnia, migraines, and chronic pain. ALL were relieved in the first few sessions I saw Doug. Seriously. He explains things very thoroughly, makes sure you're comfortable, and is very gentle. I frequently fall asleep (very odd for an insomniac!) and leave more relaxed than after a massage! Give Doug and acupuncture a chance - you won't be sorry.

Questions?

How does acupuncture work?

According to traditional theory, acupuncture regulates the movement of qi and blood in the body, restoring homeostasis and promoting self healing. A typical session involves the gentle application of needles to specific acupuncture points around the body, to the patient's comfort level. Our approach includes clinical therapies, changing habits (e.g. posture/ergonomics, sleep position, repetitive activities) and home care (e.g. therapeutic exercises, stretching, breathwork, heat therapy, and self-massage).

Do you do massage, too?

Massage can be a great addition to any acupuncture treatment whether it’s just for stress relief, relaxation or some stubborn tension in the muscles and connective tissue/fascia. Sometimes there’s just no substitute for hands on therapy. For an additional $40, you can add on a half-hour of medical massage to your acupuncture appointment. 

Do you accept insurance?

Doug accepts most health insurances, including no fault and Medicaid. Unfortunately, he cannot currently accept Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield and associated insurances.  

How long do I need to come for?

Many people find relief within a short period of time. When you come in for treatment, we follow this plan: 

1. Relief Care: The focus in this stage is to “get out of the woods” with pain/symptoms. Treatment is once or twice a week for 3-5 visits, and most patients get some relief from pain with the first visit. 

2. Corrective Care: Here, the pain and/or other symptoms are greatly diminished or gone. Less frequent treatments (10-14 days apart) are needed because there is greater balance and symptom relief that lasts between visits. Here, we maintain a deeper level of healing to prevent backslide and the return of pain/symptoms. 

3. Wellness Care: For the balanced body. This is preventative maintenance care. It can be monthly, every other month or with the change of seasons.
