Acupuncture is a form of East Asian medicine, rooted and developed in China dating back over 4000 years. It can be used to treat a wide variety of physical, emotional, and mental health conditions. As a catalytic pivot in jumpstarting our body's natural healing processes, Acupuncture works to re-balance and optimize the body's metabolic, biochemical, and neurological systems by increasing blood and fluid circulation to address physical blockages in the body which you may experience as physical pain; emotional and mental blockages; hormonal imbalances; general growth and development inefficiencies; and more. 
The beauty of East Asian Medicine lies in that, by balancing the body's energy and improving circulation, it addresses the root of the pathology of disease(s). You may find that while you are seeking treatment for a main complaint, secondary issues may be resolved as well. 

Acupuncture and other East Asian medicine modalities have proven to be a strong healing component for the modern, holistic health-conscious population. Its therapies are effective for anyone, from infants to geriatrics, seeking balanced wellness.

Other healing concepts and modalities that fall under East Asian medicine include:

  • Herbal therapy and Food as Medicine 
  • Tui Na bodywork, Moxibustion, Cupping, Gua Sha
  • Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation

How should I prepare for an Acupuncture treatment? New Patient paperwork

For your initial visit at ZENJOY, you'll need to bring with you completed New Patient paperwork.  

It is advisable to have eaten at least 2 hours before your scheduled appointment. 

It is advisable to wash up/shower before your scheduled acupuncture appointment.

Be sure to wear loose, comfortable attire.

Does Acupuncture hurt?

Today's acupuncture needles are as thin or even thinner than a hair on your head. Upon insertion, you may feel a sharp pinch that's not any more uncomfortable than a mosquito bite. This sensation does not last. During or after insertion, you may feel a dull, "cramping" pain which in Chinese medical terms is known as De Qi. It is this sensation that we are seeking, the arrival of your body's Qi to the site of needle insertion. This dull sensation may last until and, for a brief period, beyond the treatment.

What can I expect during and after an Acupuncture treatment?

In an initial treatment, the practitioner and patient go over the patient's current and past medical history; assess the current condition of the patient and his/her main complaints that he/she would like to be addressed; then, the practitioner formulates an individualized treatment prescription to achieve the best and desired results for the patient.  

During  the acupuncture treatment, the practitioner administers acupuncture, tuina, cupping, and any other modality fitting with the treatment principle. The patient can expect to rest for 20-30 minutes on the treatment table to allow the body to react to the treatment and re-balance itself accordingly.

After an acupuncture treatment, the practitioner may prescribe an herbal prescription, diet and nutrition prescription, and/or exercises in line with the treatment goals. The practitioner will also review your treatment plan, including estimated number of treatments to achieve the goal.
It is advised that you keep your body covered up, avoid showering, and avoid exerting too much energy for the next 24 hours so as to not counteract effects from the treatment.

Private Session or Community Acupuncture: Which is better for me?

Community Acupuncture offers an open-style, cost-effective and affordable option to receiving East Asian medical care. Acupuncture has cumulative effects. The more regularly you are able to get treatment, the better results you will obtain. The unique benefits of Community Acupuncture are also found in the shared healing energetics given and received as a collective. People may also find comfort in numbers, getting a treatment in the safety and presence of others if the practitioner is not well known to them. As well, there is no need to disrobe in Community Acupuncture. Though Community Acupuncture may be limited to exposed extremities, the treatments are proven to be quite effective in addressing a wide variety of health concerns. If you are seeking to try acupuncture for the first time, this may also be a good route to test the waters.
ZENJOY holds monthly Community Acupuncture events in Edmonds, WA.

Private Acupuncture sessions offer more privacy, luxury, and attention that some patients desire and/or require. A full 60 to 90 minutes is dedicated to assessing your individual health concerns and treating them. 

Contact ZENJOY to book a community or private acupuncture session.

What does a Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation therapy session entail? How often should it be done to see results?

Therapeutic services may include: Deep herbal cleanse and skin exfoliation, herbal steam, facial rejuvenation acupuncture, musculofascial cupping, facial sculpting massage, anti-aging & acne-fighting light therapy, microcurrent muscle tonification, essential oil and herbal moisturizing.

The regeneration of skin cells is optimized through the cleansing and stimulation of facial rejuvenation acutherapy. As you get older, the skin slows its regeneration to an average turnover of 20 days. It is recommended to get a high frequency of sessions (12-24 sessions) initially to begin to see desired effects. You may feel a difference even after the first therapy session. Depending on the patient's skin and constitution, desired results may take longer to achieve. However, the natural results from cosmetic facial rejuvenation prove to last longer-- years over than that of Botox. Thereafter, treatment sessions may be done with extended time between, from monthly maintenance to 3 months and up to a year!

Does ZENJOY accept medical/health insurance?

ZENJOY bills as an Out-Of-Network health provider to any health insurance that covers Acupuncture services. Please call and provide your health insurance information for verification. Prior to you receiving service, we will need your:

  1. Insurance Plan Name
  2. ID #
  3. First and Last Name
  4. Date of Birth 

ZENJOY also accepts HSA and Flex Spending payments for Acupuncture and medical services. Full payment is expected upfront and a superbill receipt will be provided to you.

ZENJOY is currently In-Network with Premera. Simply, medical insurance billing is a costly and time-consuming task. I would rather spend more of my professional time providing quality care to my patients. In this way, I do not feel pressured to conjure treatment protocols to fit the insurance claims and am able to provide the care tailored to fit the individual and their needs. I do believe quality health care should be accessible to all, which is why I offer sessions in both the private and community setting. 

What is the Payment, Cancellation, & Refund Policy?

Payment is due at time of online scheduling or at time of service as a walk-in patient.
Cash, Credit Card, Check, Venmo, Square and Square Cash are all accepted.

There is a 24-hour Notice for Cancellation Policy. For cancellations made with less than 24-hour notice and for no-shows, you will be charged 100% for the scheduled appointment.

Should a patient find difficulty in adhering to the frequency of a treatment program, there is a one (1) year expiration date on the purchased treatment program from the time of purchase to adjust frequency of treatment sessions as needed. Should a refund be requested for unused treatment sessions of a program, it will be refunded as follows:

  1. Refunds are only available for unused Acupuncture treatment sessions, not on herbs or add-on services (such as Electro-stimulation, Moxibustion, Cupping, Gua Sha, Tui Na, etc.) as these services are included complimentary and complementary to the treatment program. Unused herbal medicinal formulas are non-refundable, even though unused, as they are customized to the individual patient based on his/her unique health concerns.
  2. As treatment programs are discounted based on a patient's commitment to a prescribed frequency of clinic treatments, the refund on unused Acupuncture appointment sessions will be based on the standard value of a single regular treatment session at the time of purchase.
