Before Your Treatment
Please eat sufficiently before your appointment. If you have a morning appointment, make sure you eat breakfast. Please do not brush your tongue before treatment, as the tongue provides important diagnostic information. Also, refrain from using drugs or alcohol at least several hours before and after your treatment. After treatment, take some time to relax and return to your daily routine gradually. The acupuncture treatment continues to rebalance the body in the hours after treatment. To maximize the treatment effect, avoid vigorous exercise, hot tubs, over-eating, drugs, and alcohol for several hours after treatment.
Missed Appointment Policy
If you need to change or cancel your appointment please do so within 24 hours before the appointment time. Failure to do so will result in being charged the full fee for your appointment.
Patients who wish to have their insurance cover all or a portion of their treatment should contact their insurance provider to learn about their coverage of Acupuncture. Aimee Wells Acupuncture is an in-network provider for several insurance plans and we are also willing to work with insurance companies that we are out of network with as well. We are in-network with the following insurance providers:
- Cigna Healthcare
- Beech Street, a Viant Network
- Interplan Health Group
- Coventry Health Care
Aimee Wells Acupuncture is currently out of network for all insurance companies not listed above. Call Aimee Wells Acupuncture at (510) 332-6434 to see if we accept your insurance and to learn more about how we can work with your insurance.
When companies do not cover acupuncture, many patients set up a health savings plan with their employer to set aside tax-free dollars for health services not covered by their traditional insurance.
