What to Expect

Please silence your cell phones as they are not allowed for use during treatment sessions.
When you enter the treatment room, please remove socks and shoes and be seated on the table and/or chair.
We Treat in a Community Setting
Treatment duration can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. The treatment room is meant to remain a quiet space for you and others to rest, meditate, sleep, and/or sort it all out. Its atmosphere exists through our patients relaxing together in a therapeutic environment. This type of collective stillness is a rare and valuable thing in our rushed and isolating society. If you would like to speak to your acupuncturist one-on-one at great length, please let us know. We can arrange for time in the office.
Private Sessions versus Community Setting
Private sessions differ from the community setting in several ways. In a private session, you are in a private room so for those that prefer a setting where they can listen to music and focus on meditation or even take a nap, this setting may be more ideal for you. Private sessions also involve the use of additional modalities depending on the patient’s needs. The use of these additional modalities increases the cost. If a patient has multiple issues that needs to be addressed, the private setting offers a more customizable approach to helping one rebalance. This allows more time to cover additional details.
Treatments in a community setting offer a quiet soothing space for focused therapy. This setting has many benefits. Many patients do better in this scenario as the collective energy of everyone working together toward their health and wellness goals proves very beneficial. If a patient has a very focused imbalance such as pain in one area, stress management or addiction therapy, this may be the ideal scenario for therapy. By simplifying the treatments and not using costly, high-tech interventions, we can see more patients within a certain time frame, thus allowing us to offer this safe, effective treatment to others.
Our Commitment to You
We want our community to be welcoming to all different kinds of people. We want to give you the tools to take care of your own health in a safe environment with skilled, experienced practitioners. We will always be available to listen to any advice and/or feedback you may have about The Oasis Institute.
