Contraindications for treatment
Please note that acupuncture is contraindicated if you are altered by alcohol or drugs. You may also wish to delay treatment if you are excessively fatigued or overly hungry until you have had proper rest and nourishment. I reserve the right to refuse treatment to anyone who is deemed ineligible for such treatment.
Initial Consultation: $150.00
Regular session: $125.00
Medicinal Herb Consult: $75.00 Initial visit. $25.00 follow-up visit and/or formula modification.
Medicinal Herb Formula: Herb formulas vary in price and depend on whether your prescription utilizes raw herbs, granules or tablets. Typical weekly herb cost is about $20.

While I do not accept insurance as payment for services, many providers offer out-of-network coverage for acupuncture and alternative health care. I can provide you with an appropriately documented statement to use for reimbursement from your insurance provider.
If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, the courtesy of a 24 hour advance notice is requested. Cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance are assessed at full fees.
Client confidentiality is strictly observed at all times. I do not release records or client information except as approved by an authorized request source as required by law.
If you have any questions along the way please do not hesitate to bring them to my attention. Should you need to reach me between sessions, please leave a message (973-239-4004) with your name and number and an appropriate time to return your call. I will contact you within 24 hours. Please indicate whether there is any urgent matter to attend.
