Initial appointments include a TCM health evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. A Treatment Plan will be made for you, which is specifically tailored to your case and includes specific recommendations for herbal or nutritional supplements, dietary modification, books, classes, and your acupuncture treatment plan. It is meant to be a guideline to your path to wellness.
Initial Appointment $120
The initial appointment could last between one and a half to two hours. The modalities used, depending on your particular case, could be Acupuncture, Acupressure, Tui Na Massage, Moxibustion, TDP lamp, cupping, and Gua Sha. This cost covers all modalities used, not including supplements.
Follow-up appointments $75 (full-time student $65)
Health status update as well as an acupuncture treatment.
The average length of an appointment is one hour.
Herbs and Nutritional supplements are an additional cost.
Please be sure to have some food in your stomach when you come in for your appointment to reduce the risk of dizziness and fainting.
Payment is always due at the time of service. We accept cash, check, Visa and MasterCard.
More and more insurance policies cover Acupuncture. Check with your insurance company directly to find out if your plan has coverage for Acupuncture. If so, be sure to ask if the coverage includes licensed Doctors of Acupuncture and if the coverage is only for a specific condition. Dr. Dilks is a participating provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield. For all other insurance companies, if you do have coverage, as a courtesy, Emerging Energy Acupuncture will bill for you; however, payment is still required at the time of service, and you may be reimbursed directly from the insurance company. If your insurance company does not cover Acupuncture, call and request that they do.
We encourage you to make your appointment for service in advance. We will not charge for services that are cancelled at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
