60-80 mins -- Sliding scale $85-150
Your first appointment begins with a conversation about your past medical history, the state of your overall health & well-being, and what changes you would most like to achieve. This integrated picture allows me to develop a holistic treatment plan that addresses the root causes of your health imbalances as well as the troublesome symptoms.
In addition to acupuncture, there are many tools I draw upon to improve your health. Depending on your condition, I may also use one of the following to strengthen your treatment:
custom herbal formulas
nutritional and supplement recommendations
stretching and postural exercises
50-60 mins-- Sliding scale $65-125 (with cupping, sliding scale is $80-125)
Follow up treatments are important to further fine tune and customize your treatment plan. Usually weekly visits are most effective at the beginning, and once your systems are more balanced, I recommend patients come once a month to maintain good health. Visits can include acupuncture, herbal recommendations, food as medicine counseling & recipes, lifestyle coaching, corrective stretches, moxa and cupping.
Mamie is gentle, patient and completely non-judgmental. Her touch is so light I never feel the needles going in, and can always count on a good nap during each appointment. She is very flexible and has squeezed me in several times to treat a migraine as it's developing and like magic, it dissipates.
I had a broken clavicle and it hurt. Mamie, in 25 minutes, could make the acute pain subside. I saw her several times over three weeks and the pain didn't resurface. I totally recommend her.
20-30 minutes -- $30-50
Cupping is a highly effective way to relax chronically tight muscles with lasting results. It can be used to release tight neck and shoulders, hamstrings, calf muscles, IT band and much more. Many of my athlete patients report that their performance has improved greatly with cupping.
