Acupuncture creates space away from daily stresses for your body’s natural healing response. The needles are small and not particularly painful. Some people feel tingling, traveling sensations, or dull aches. These are signs that the needles are affecting the Qi of the body and having a therapeutic effect. People typically find acupuncture very relaxing.
Tuina massage (“twee-na” ) is rhythmic with smooth, controlled movements. It’s especially beneficial for muscular tension, stress, and pain. It can be combined with acupuncture or used as a primary treatment.
Chinese herbs range from food grade spices like cinnamon and ginger to intense medicinals with strong effects. Single herbs are most often combined into elegant, well-balanced formulas that have been passed down and refined for centuries.
As well as being a board-certified herbalist, I supervise and teach in OCOM's large Chinese herbal medicinary. The herbs that I use in practice are carefully sourced for quality and safety.
Diagnosis & Evaluation
These treatments depend on a good diagnosis in Chinese medical terms. In order to determine the direction of treatment, I may ask questions, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and feel different points on your body. I may also recommend lifestyle changes or seeking care from other kinds of providers when appropriate.
Alert, relaxed movement can do wonders for your health. It reduces stress, increases awareness, and refines your control of your body. Tai Chi and Qigong are traditional exercises that emphasize relaxation and smooth, coordinated motion.
Private Health Insurance
I am an in-network provider with many major insurance companies, including Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, Providence Health Plan, Cigna, Healthnet, Axis, Aetna, and others.
If your insurance covers acupuncture, the cost to you depends on the details of your plan. To determine your benefits, you can call the number on the back of your card and ask the following:
- Does my plan cover acupuncture?
- If so, what is my copay or coinsurance?
- Do I need to meet a deductible before these benefits apply?
- Are there limits to the number of visits or amount billed?
- Do I need a doctor’s referral?
You can also call me (Eliot) at 541.680.5660 and I may be able to look up your benefits for you. I'll ask you for your name and date of birth, the name of your insurance provider, and your subscriber ID and group number.
Automobile Insurance / Worker’s Compensation
If you are recovering from a car accident or work-related injury, payments from your auto insurance or worker’s compensation may cover treatments related to that incident. Acupuncture and massage are an excellent value when using this money.
Healthcare can be overpriced and stressful, but it doesn't have to be. I strive to be fair and transparent in my pricing.
If you don't have insurance that covers acupuncture, you can pay out of pocket at the following prices:
Acupuncture initial visit (75 minutes) - $90
Acupuncture follow-up visit (60 minutes) - $65
Tuina massage (30 minutes) - $35
Tuina massage (60 minutes) - $70
Acupuncture + Tuina (75 minutes) - $100
Herbal Consultation (30-45 minutes) - $25 + cost of herbs ($10-$40/week)
I offer a 40% discount on these prices for people experiencing financial hardship. Please call for more details.
I am proud to be a volunteer provider for the Returning Veterans Project, a nonprofit organization that coordinates free and confidential services to post-9/11 war zone veterans and service members and their families. This means that if you or a close family member is a post-9/11 veteran, depending on availability, I may be able to treat you for free.

I highly recommend Eliot for your acupuncture needs. My husband started seeing him after two herniated discs in his neck. Eliot's expertise, practice, knowledge, and calm atmosphere provided the pain management he needed to deal with a painful health issue without the use of medication. My husband went from a skeptic of acupuncture to a full advocate of its medicinal purposes. He also went from being unable to move his head and dress himself to being fully rotational and able to hike. Eliot was kind, professional, and affordable. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for acupuncture services.
