Sliding Scale

Western Wind ​provides high quality acupuncture treatment at affordable rates in a supportive community environment.  Most US acupuncturists also see only one patient per hour and charge up to $200+ per treatment but research in the United States (as well as thousands of years of tradition in Asia) has shown that acupuncture is most effective when it is done frequently and regularly.  Our mission is to support your healing by streamlining our treatments to see multiple patients in an hour.

Western Wind Acupuncture does not receive grants, state or federal money, or insurance reimbursement. We exist because patients pay for their treatments – it a sustainable community business model. 

Acupuncture appointments are on a sliding scale of $25-$50 per community treatment, and $60-$85 per private treatment. (There is a $15 fee included for initial appointments)

You decide what you can afford.


The purpose of our sliding scale is to separate the issue of money and treatment; we want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better!  We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and our primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it.

Because we have a sliding scale, we cannot do insurance billing (that’s the insurance companies’ rule).

We utilize a slide scale ($25-$50 community / $60-$85 private) in an effort to make acupuncture accessible to everyone in our community.  Please know that the scale is not intended to be a discount for those with the means, but rather a healing opportunity for those currently without.  How the scale is intended to work: Those who have the means to pay at the higher end of the scale (market rate) do so, and those who currently do not have the means to pay market rate pay at the lower end of the scale.  We trust that you will find a price that feels good for all!
