Acupuncture – Now Accepting Insurance

Acupuncture helps the body to remember how to work by restoring its systems and organs to a healthier state.  When your body is working optimally, you wake up with more energy to create change, from your work performance, relationships, and even how you view your life.  A body that is working is harmoniously is the foundation for a fuller and happier life.

Acupuncture as part of Chinese medicine is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances in the body that when left untreated can show up as medical conditions.  The treatments work at both the root of the issue – and the branch – how the disharmony is manifesting such as headaches, fibromyalgia, infertility, diabetes, high blood pressure etc.  By treating the root, often several issues are treated at the same time. You may come in for headaches and after several treatments realize that your seasonal allergies have also lessened or resolved.

Acupuncture is a whole body medical approach to bringing balance back to the body.  Side effects are typically reduced inflammation, improved sleep, less anxiety, and overall healthier well-being.

Nanopuncture® is Dr. Shiu’s unique acupuncture system that integrates Western neurological analysis, Eastern medicine knowledge of the tendinomuscular meridians of the body, and Dr. Shiu’s specific neurological acupuncture techniques. The result is a new highly efficient system that can analyze where your nervous system’s circulation is inhibited, as well as directly reset and reboot the patient’s nervous system in various parts of the body, and offer significant neurovascular circulation benefits.

What about the needles?

An acupuncture needle is about the thickness of a strand of hair. Most patients who are needle phobic find after the first few insertions, that they are no longer afraid. The treatments are relaxing and many patients fall asleep during treatment.

Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is incredibly safe and effective when given by a trained and licensed practitioner. The needles our Acupuncturist uses are single-use, sterile needles. All Acupuncturists are trained in clean needle technique. Overall, injuries from acupuncture with a licensed practitioner are very rare.

What is my initial visit like?
During your initial visit, your Acupuncturist will review your medical history and do a Chinese Medicine intake – this is an in-depth questionnaire regarding your main complaint and the different systems of your body. You will also have ample time to ask questions.

How many appointments will I need?
This is the most common question. The general rule is that the longer you have had the condition, the longer it takes to resolve. During the first appointment, our Acupuncturist will let you know the suggested number and frequency of treatments that would be best for you. 

Cancellation Policy

Synergy Wellness Center will ask for a credit card to at the time you schedule your appointment to hold your appointment.  You will not be charged until your appointment is held. In the event that you need to cancel, we ask that you provide at least 24 hours advance notice of the need to cancel in order to avoid a cancelation charge.

If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours advance notice, there will be a 50% cancelation fee.  If you do not attend a scheduled appointment (no call, no show), you will be charged 100% for the appointment. At our discretion, this charge will be either automatically deducted from an existing payment method, and the fee must be paid prior to your next appointment. 

Due to administrative costs related to the insurance claims process, if you have a change in your health insurance, Synergy must be notified 5 days prior to the date of the effective policy change or you will be charged a $150 insurance lapse fee. In order to avoid this charge, please notify Synergy’s office staff (not your practitioner) at 978-333-7426 of any upcoming changes to your insurance.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have revised our Cancellation Policy as follows:

Amid the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, we have modified our cancellation policy to offer greater flexibility to all our clients. We hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule if you are not feeling well, we understand and request for you to please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule. To further support you, there will be no penalties for cancellations.

If you are experiencing a fever, cough, or sore throat, please reschedule your appointment for when you are no longer symptomatic. If you have been to a COVID-19-impacted area or have been in close contact with a person infected with COVID-19, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment for 14 days past the date of contact. Please note, we are requesting that clients wear face coverings when they arrive for their appointments.

Thank you for your understanding.
