Holistic Primary Care
At Botanarchy Herbs & Acupuncture we practice holistic primary care, incorporating acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, and lifestyle counseling to address the complex & nuanced health issues our society suffers from. Carolyn teaches her patients how to set clear and focused health objectives, and how to increase their efficacy through ritual, lifestyle, and radical self-care.
At your first visit, Carolyn will take a comprehensive health history and perform a Chinese medical diagnostic exam, along with assessing any western lab work that is available. They will create a personalized treatment protocol utilizing a combination of the modalities above, and the session culminates with an acupuncture treatment. Follow up appointments assess how the treatment is progressing and target any new developments, always utilizing a customized blend of holistic modalities.
Initial appointments run 90 minutes, and cost $120. Follow up appointments are 1 hour, and are $80.
Supplements and herbal formulas are charged separately, and are reasonably priced on the premise that everyone should have access to alternative medicine.
