How to Request a Session

To request a session, patients should first speak with their nurse. The nurse will coordinate the request with the patient's attending physician.
Sessions are scheduled based on availability. Once an order for a session has been entered by the physician, we try to respond to requests within the next 24 hours. Due to limited staff availability at this time, we may not be able to honor all requests.

  • Massage Therapy and Healing Touch: $35 for 30-minute session
  • Acupuncture: $70 for one treatment session
Payment at the time of the treatment is required. We accept cash, checks or Visa and MasterCard.
