Please note that there will be a new appointment format for office visits at both locations:

  • Office visits will now be 45 minutes long.

  • Each office visit will be preceded by Pre-Treatment Virtual Check-In to be held by videoconference the day before your office visit. When you book an office visit, please be sure to also schedule a Virtual Check-In for the day prior.

    The Virtual Check-In will take the place of the conversation that we would normally have at the beginning of your acupuncture visit. This way, we will be able to speak freely without masks, see each other's smiles, and reduce time spent talking in a shared indoor space. This will be our chance to discuss how you are doing, what has changed since your last appointment, and what you would like to address in your upcoming acupuncture treatment. In most cases, the virtual check-in will take 15-20 minutes. There is no extra fee for the virtual check-in. It will be combined with the in-person visit and the total fee for both will be the same as for a regular 60-minute appointment.

As I return to offering in-person visits, I will also continue to offer Virtual Wellness Sessions.

These are held online through an encrypted, HIPAA compliant video-conferencing service. Established and new patients may book these sessions online. Click here to learn more about this opportunity to enhance your health and wellbeing from the comfort of your own home.

Please note that, as I am licensed in Washington, DC and Virginia, I can only conduct virtual sessions with patients in those two localities.

If you know of someone in DC or Virginia who is struggling with the stress created by the pandemic or who could use support around self-care practices to manage a chronic health condition, please consider giving them the gift of a virtual wellness session with me.
