Insurance Sucks . . . Affordable Acupuncture Rocks

Are you concerned about healthcare in America, and where it’s headed?  Well I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately!  Let me introduce you to a great healthcare option — Acupuncture, and better yet – Affordable Acupuncture!

Health Insurance Sucks, the premiums are getting higher and higher and coverage less and less.  The good news is in many cases, you can rely less on insurance and prescription medications, and more on holistic healthcare like Acupuncture, and diet, nutrition and lifestyle changes to help you feel better.

I am one of the fortunate that Obama Care helped – and for now I have a decent policy.   I’ve used that policy for getting diagnostics this year, as I see the benefit of western medicine diagnostics especially when they are not particularly invasive.  However, after getting the diagnostics I feel I need, most often I then turn to the holistic healthcare model of care for gently and naturally guiding my body back into balance when needed and helping me stay healthy and strong.  We are lucky here in Austin as it is a city rich in holistic healthcare resources, and Affordable Acupuncture at Acupuncture Together is one of them!
We don’t take insurance at Acupuncture Together, because our rates of $25.00 per treatment are generally less than a co-pay, even if your plan covers acupuncture.  Sometimes acupuncture is cost prohibitive, then you are left unable to go enough to actually heal at a deep level.  At Acupuncture Together, we use the business model called community acupuncture so you can afford to get as many treatments as you need to heal.  Many HSA’s and FSA’s allow you to get acupuncture and we take those debit and credit cards as well.  We can help you resolve your health issues and feel better, see some of the many ways Acupuncture can help below:

In many cases digestive symptoms, headaches, and even pain are due to stress, anxiety, overwork or depression.  Acupuncture helps bring your body back to a state of relaxation, so instead of the usual “here take this pill it will fix things — but be notified it could cause several other problems,” we say Try Acupuncture!  Acupuncture reminds your body what it is innately able to do – Heal, and it supports your body to do just that and stay in balance!

So remember, Affordable Acupuncture is a great option for many common healthcare issues.  At Acupuncture Together we also help guide our patients when they are interested towards healthier diet, nutrition and lifestyle through Charlotte’s Herbal and Holistic Healthcare Consults!   When you feel the need for an MD by all means it’s important to go . . . however, when you feel your body needs more natural healing support which gets to the root of the issue and re-balances your body systems  remember Acupuncture Together.   Our bodies are so smart and able to reprogram, adjust, and compensate as necessary when supported through a healing process holistically.  Healing works best when we tend to our diet, and nutrition, get plenty of rest, exercise and give our body gentle and loving support to guide it on its way.

That said, what will you do to care for yourself after your doctor checkup, and diagnostics?  We are here to help and would love to introduce you to the ancient medicine healing modality of Acupuncture, it’s still around because it works!  Read more about our clinic here.
