Welcome to YinOva
We’re happy to be a part of your healing team.
OUR FRONT DESK
We are open seven days a week, with appointment times available all day, including early mornings and evenings after work. When you call to make an appointment, our reception team will be glad to find a time that works in your schedule, as well as to help you choose the practitioner and services that will give you the support you need. If you have a specific question relating to your medical condition, they can connect you with one of our practitioners. Call or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also make an appointment online here.
YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
We don’t keep you waiting, so please get to the Center five minutes before your scheduled appointment so you’ll have time to fill out paperwork. You can relax in our spacious and airy waiting room, and help yourself to tea or water. Your practitioner will meet you there and take you into a treatment room to speak in private. No special clothing is necessary, as whatever you are wearing you will likely remove for treatment. You’ll change in private, and be covered throughout your treatment.
YOUR ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT
Your first appointment generally takes about an hour and 15 minutes, and follow ups about 50 minutes to an hour. This gives you plenty of time to talk with your practitioner and to ask any questions you might have. It also allows time for your practitioner to ask you lots of questions, as well as to examine your tongue and take your pulse in the service of making a Chinese medical diagnosis. Acupuncture points will be chosen according to your diagnosis, and other modalities may also be performed or suggested, including moxa, gua sha, cupping and massage. Your practitioner may also prescribe some Chinese herbs or other supplements. We take great care to explain what we are doing and nothing should hurt or be uncomfortable. In fact, we hear from patients all the time that they love coming for treatment simply because it is so relaxing.
YOUR HERBAL FORMULA
Your practitioner may prescribe an herbal formula for you. A formula may contain a blend of up to 15 herbs, and come prepared as pills, tinctures, or granules so they are easy and convenient to take. Herbs are always chosen to address your specific pattern of symptoms, with an eye toward maximizing both effectiveness and safety. All the herbs we recommend are from companies we know and trust, and are prepared according to strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and so are subject to high levels of quality control. We never use any substance derived from an endangered species or that involves the inflicting of pain on a sentient being.
We accept all major credit cards, checks, and, of course, cash. Our prices are explained here. Gift cards are also available. We offer multi-treatment packages at a discount. We do not process insurance here at the Center, but are glad to provide the appropriate forms for you to submit to your insurance company. Please check ahead of time to see if you have coverage.
