Michelle Sigler Acupuncture
Services & Fees
Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique which involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single-use needles into specific points on the body. The needles direct the Qi, or vital energy, to flow freely throughout the body to promote natural healing and balance.
The initial visit usually takes 75-90 minutes and includes a thorough health history interview, physical exam and treatment as well as discussion/recommendations for lifestyle enhancements, nutritional recommendations and herbal formulas. The fee for the initial visit is $100. Follow up visits usually last 45-60 minutes and are $75. A package of 4 follow up sessions is $240.
NADA treatments are different from regular acupuncture treatments. They are based on the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association's protocol of using ear points for support with detox, smoking cessation, PTSD and also for general relaxation. There is no intake or exam with this appointment. NADA treatments are $45 (approx 30 min)
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture increases circulation and collagen production to minimize wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps reduce puffiness and improves skin tone giving you a healthy glow. It's a much safer alternative than more invasive treatments such as surgery or botox. This cosmetic treatment is combined with a full-body acupuncture treatment so that we can address your overall health as well. A new patient visit is $110/90 minutes. A Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment for return patients is $85/60 minutes. A series of 10 treatments 1-2 times per week is optimal.
Acupuncture Packages and Gift Certificates are available.
While I do not file insurance claims, I can provide a "superbill" with diagnostic and procedural codes for you to submit to your insurance company. HSA/FSA cards are accepted. Please check with your health insurance company to see if your plan covers acupuncture.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is a 2,000 year old tradition using naturally occurring substances — including herbs — to enhance one's health and vitality. As opposed to Western medicine, the foundation of this approach is to support the body's natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities. Unlike Western herbology, Chinese herbology rarely uses single herbs, but instead, relies on combining medicinal substances into formulas which are carefully balanced to reduce side effects. Herbal medicine can be used alone or as an adjunct to acupuncture care. Herbal linaments, poultices and plasters may also be used externally for musculoskeletal injuries and other topical applications.
An herbal consultation is included at no charge as part of an acupuncture treatment. An herbal consultation without acupuncture is $50 (not including the cost of the herbs) and takes about 40 minutes. A follow up herbal consult (without acupuncture) is $35 (approx 20 min). Cost of herbs not included.

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy centers in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, the client relaxes on the massage table fully clothed. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to remove blockages and release old energy patterns or beliefs that no longer serve, while balancing and restoring vital life force energy. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain. A Reiki session is $75/hour. Private Reiki classes/attunements are also available.
