Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments are necessary to resolve a condition?
The number of treatments you need depends on the complexity of your illness, whether it is a chronic or recent condition, and the condition of your general health.
Chronic conditions which have developed over many years will not usually be remedied over night. The rule-of-thumb is to expect one month of treatment for every year you’ve had the condition.
The usual recommendation is to get an initial series of six to ten treatments which will show how quickly your body changes with treatments.
Are acu therapy treatments covered by insurance?
Many insurance companies cover acupuncture. They are catching on to the financial benefits of keeping patients healthy with low cost, highly effective therapies like Asian medicine instead of paying the high cost of drugs, surgery, and other invasive, potentially dangerous, and expensive tests and therapies. Check with your insurance company to see if they cover acupuncture.
Acupuncture is covered by California workers compensation insurance. Most automobile policies which include medical payments also cover acupuncture. We can provide you with an invoice (called a super bill) to give to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Do you bill insurance as an in-network provider?
No, we are not currently setup as in-network insurance providers, and we do not bill insurance directly. We can provide you with a “super bill” that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Why are Herbal Prescriptions not all-Inclusive, and combined treatments more expensive?
Some combined treatments take more hands-on time than a single treatment. For example, additional time is needed to provide in-depth bodywork and acu therapy in a single treatment session.
Herbal prescriptions require additional diagnostic evaluation, treatment planning, and management. Frequently, the creation of personalized herbal formulas are also necessary and helpful. The additional cost is simply for the additional time and expertise.

“I started on a mission to improve my hypertension, high cholesterol, and blood sugar levels through diet, lifestyle, and weight loss. Dan was a very important resource! He actively supported my efforts, providing encouragement and practical ideas to supplement my research. Dan helped me to stay balanced in my approach, be kind to myself, and have reasonable expectations and timelines. The herbal formulas he prescribed were helpful with no side effects (unlike the prescriptions I was taking). I’ve lost 30 pounds, my lab results are all within normal ranges again, and I feel great!”
