Does it hurt?
If your insurance does not pay for acupuncture treatments please do not pass up the opportunity to restore your health just because a misguided corporate insurance executive has made up a financial decision that has no consideration for your individual circumstances. If you want to feel better we recommend that you to take control of your own health and wellbeing by finding treatment that is truly effective for you.
Other options for reducing the cost of treatments include Flexible Spending Plans and Health Savings Accounts which allow one to use pre-tax dollars for acupuncture and other medical care. Ask your employer if they have a Flex Plan and find out what you need to do to participate. Health Savings Accounts are available to anyone who is enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan. Contact your health insurance company for more information about setting up a Health Savings Account.
Acupuncture treatments, herbs prescribed for
treatment, and transportation costs are all tax deductible medical expenses.
In order to qualify for a deduction your combined total medical and dental
expenses for the year must be more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income. Keep
track of your expenses and see your tax advisor for any additional details

We have also been able to help patients with chronic illnesses and health concerns that have no clear origin or reliable diagnosis. Patients who are committed to a healthy lifestyle often receive ongoing acupuncture treatment for maintenance and health promotion including: reduction in colds and flues, increased vitality and stamina, and reductions in long term health care costs.
At Abundance Acupuncture the practitioners are experts in the style of acupuncture known as “The Balance Method” or “Distal Point Acupuncture.” These techniques have results that are nothing less than miraculous. Pain relief is even faster than drug therapies and often occurs in seconds after needle insertion. In most cases these treatments go far beyond simple pain relief. A series of treatments can completely resolve many conditions.
The acupuncture points we most frequently use are located between the elbows and the fingers and between the knees and the toes. Sometimes points on the scalp and/or the outer ears are also used. This means that our patients rarely need to remove their clothes, the treatments are more comfortable, and extremely effective.

What are the goals of treatment?
Our patients are often surprised to find that the benefits of acupuncture treatments go far beyond the temporary relief of symptoms. Our goal is to make lasting improvements in the overall health and function of our patients. Again and again our patients tell us that acupuncture treatments have given them permanent relief from the suffering caused by the health problems that originally motivated them to seek our help.
Many patients also experience unexpected improvements in their health that they did not even know acupuncture would be able to help. For example, patients have been surprised to find that their excessive appetite has been reduced, their chronic constipation resolved, or that their blood pressure and cholesterol levels are lowered. Most patients feel calmer and more relaxed while also experiencing increased levels of energy. Patients often tell us that they have been able to make positive changes in their lives that they had wanted to make for years. Bill D., for example, says in his testimonial: “I have more energy, less pain, and once again am able to laugh and simply enjoy life more than I have in a long time.”
