$15-$45 Sliding Scale, Pay What’s Comfortable!

Yep, you read that right! Acupuncture is most effective when received regularly, and it is our mission to make sure that anyone can afford the kind of frequent treatment that will get them real, lasting results. At the traditional $65-$125(yikes!) per visit charged at many acupuncture practices, even weekly treatment can get unaffordable fast! We charge a sliding scale of $15-$45 per treatment, and don’t bother with any income verification. You choose what you pay! Yes, it works out for us. Really. Still confused? Check out this article.

Please note that there is a one-time additional fee of $10 for your first visit. Thanks for helping us make acupuncture in Fort Myers affordable!

  1. I have had pain in my dominent left arm for 1 yr. It started playing tennis one day and has never gone away. I have not played tennis since but do play golf, it seems to aggravate it tremendously. I believe I have tendonitis. Can acupuncture help me??
    Thank you , Leona Thompson

    • Absolutely! There are a number of things it could be, tendonitis included, most of which acupuncture can be very effective at treating. We would of course need to evaluate you in person to give accurate expectations of treatment requirements and results, but generally anywhere from 4-8 treatments is par for the course with golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, or tendonitis. Because you’ve been dealing with this for over a year, you may need more than that to see lasting results you’re happy with, but we’d have a much better idea after the first few treatments. Thanks, and be well! – Dominic

  2. How about ed?
    Arthritis?
    Energy?
    Relieve stress?
    Auricular therapy?

    • Yes to all of the above, though ED can be caused by a number of different things from the perspective of traditional chinese medicine (TCM), some of which are easier to treat than others. With arthritis, osteoarthritis generally responds more quickly than rheumatoid, which usually requires regular treatment for months to get lasting results. We get great results with both, but rheumatoid arthritis takes a pretty good commitment of time and often dietary changes. Low energy can come from a variety of things, again some easier to treat than others, but usually we see better energy in most patients within the first few treatments, with good lasting results taking anywhere from a few weeks to a few months of treatment, depending on the person. Stress relief is an easy one. Honestly we’d have a hard time not relieving stress.

      We do some auricular therapy, usually for addiction treatment and weight loss, though it can be applied to many different conditions. We don’t do much in the way of diagnosis with the ears like some do, but occasionally we pull that arrow out of our quiver for difficult/strange cases. Hope that helps!

  3. Do you treat food allergies, IBS, depression, ringing in ears? How long does it take?

    • Yes, we help patients with all of the above! For the first two, in addition to acupuncture many of our patients have had excellent results going gluten free, or eliminating grains entirely from their diet. Every condition is different, and each person responds to acupuncture differently, so it is hard to give an accurate expectation of how many treatments one will need. Many people will see some results after the first treatment, though some of the more stubborn cases will take up to 4 treatments before seeing results they are happy with. Generally, the longer one has had a problem, the longer it will take to get them back to feeling like they should. We usually recommend treatment two times per week to start with, which becomes less and less as symptoms improve. If you’d like more detailed answers specific to your case, feel free to send us an email any time, or set up an appointment and talk to us in person. Have a great day!

  4. Do you treat trigeminal neuralgia? Thanks for your time.

    • Yes, absolutely!

  5. Have u dealt with helping women get their menstral cycle normal.. Had a regular period up until 20 then it stopped, doctor has ran all kinds of tests and everything comes back fine, als well as ultra sounds and m.r.i . I am now 27 , from maarch thru may was on birth control and it started stopped it and again no period :(. Trying to get pregnant so this is a proplem

    • Yes, absolutely Chrissi. Your case is certainly rather unique, but helping women regulate their cycles is something we often do.

  6. I have numbness in legs and weakness – I just had 2 epidurals in back and they don’t seem to have worked. I will be leaving 2nd week in Dec. for 3 weeks – would it benefit me to come in before I leave or should I wait and come in when I get back the first of Jan.? I have motor neruopthy in legs and some back problems.

    • Hi Jim! Yes, I would say go ahead and come in as soon as possible. If you were leaving next week, it would make sense to wait until you return, buy since we can have 3 or 4 weeks to try to make some headway before you leave, I would absolutely get started sooner rather than later.

      Your case certainly seems like it will be a difficult one, so please understand that it may take a number of visits before you notice a difference. Once you come in and we are able to get better detail about your case, we will be able to give you a better idea as to what sort of results to expect.

  7. I have been diagnosed with “poly myalgia rheumatica ” in Nov. 2012. It seemed to get better with the steroid prednizone but the past 6 weeks has gotten much worse and I am now on 20 mg of the steroid (which I know is not good for my body) Have you ever treated anyone for this disease?
    Ruth

    • Yes, we have worked with PMR, and acupuncture can be very helpful at managing the pain and inflammation associated with it. Depending on your pain level, we would likely recommend 2-3 treatments per week until things are more manageable, then tapering off as you’re doing better. Hope this helps!

  8. Are you wheelchair accessible? Also have you treated transverse mylitis, ulcerative colitis and chronic pain to name a few? Is it ok that I have many many health conditions? Can you still help me? Also have low back pain and neck pain going to physical therapy 3 times a week and hasn’t helped that at all. Have gone for over a month is there a chance you could help ease all or some of these? Honestly any relief would be a wonderful.

    • Yes, we are absolutely wheelchair accessible. All of those conditions you mention are absolutely things that we work with, and have a good expectation of being able to help you with. Chronic pain, back and neck pain are things we see all the time, and are able to provide a great deal of relief with most cases. More chronic conditions like MS, transverse myelitis, UC, etc are also good candidates for acupuncture treatment, but those usually require ongoing treatments for maintenance.

  9. Experienced peripheral neuropathy at night to the point of getting no sleep. If that didn’t keep me from sleeping, the torn rotator cuff in my shoulder did. Dominic treated me and put some “seeds” on my ears…I haven’t slept this well in a long long time.
    Thanks Dominic!!
