Here's How Our Unique Combination of Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Bring The Body To Heal Itself
Our Process Is Simple

1. Free Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation you'll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you're taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you - BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

2. Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack.

Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR Depression.

4.Transitional Care As Things Stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you'll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.

We'll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with "ongoing maintenance" and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

3. Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You'll return for once-weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

  • Less pain and fear of missing out

  • Fewer depressive episodes

  • Improved mental focus

  • More joy and confidence

  • More energy and improved sex drive

You'll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in optimal mental wellbeing.

5. Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

Common Questions & Answers About Our Treatment Program For Depression

How long does it take to see results?

People often feel a positive shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.

What are my chances of success?

Results vary, of course. That being said, over 75% of our patients report improvement in symptoms after just a few sessions and many are able to reduce their medication use (under supervision by the prescribing physician) as their bodies begin to recover. However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.

Does it hurt?

We use single-use, sterile needles that are designed to be placed in the body as gently as possible. Clients feel very little to nothing at all when a needle is inserted. Once the point is reached, the most common sensation is a dull ache or a small electric zing. These sensations are very different from the pain usually associated with hypodermic, hollow, inflexible, large-gauge needles used by most western medical professionals.

How often will I need to come in?

Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

Will I have to keep coming forever?

Often we are asked, once my symptoms improve will I need acupuncture to keep me feeling well? After the initial relief, we focus on building simple skills and habits to help keep you in charge of your wellbeing. Our goal is to help you heal quickly and sustainably so you won't NEED ongoing care.

Can natural medicine REALLY help my problem?

Absolutely. Your body is capable of healing ANY problem, especially when it has the support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We've seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.
