Services


Meggan Baumgartner utilizes a broad range of traditional Chinese and East Asian therapeutic modalities in her sessions. These are grouped in various combinations in order to provide her patients with the most comprehensive care.

Acupuncture

This is the most basic and common treatment and some form of acupuncture is always included. Depending on the patient's condition, desires and the time available, this treatment may also include one or more of the following: Chinese herbal prescription, nutritional/dietary information, therapeutic massage/bodywork, visualization/relaxation techniques and other adjunct therapies (cupping, moxabustion, gua sha, etc.).

  • Initial assessment and treatment sessions take approximately 90-100 minutes.

  • Follow-up treatments take approximately 50-70 minutes. 

  • Chinese herbs and additional modalities may be offered for an additional cost.

Treatments for Children (newborn to 12 years)

Children can benefit from Chinese medicine as well! One of the cornerstones of traditional Chinese pediatric medicine is a very effective bodywork technique known as Pediatric Tuina. This can be performed by the practitioner, but is also easy for the parents/caregivers to learn and do at home. Chinese herbs can also be safely administered orally or topically for children and our clinic stocks common pediatric formulas. Treatments for children may also include dietary recommendations, adjunct therapies, and even a small amount of acupuncture.

  • Initial assessment and treatment sessions take approximately 50-60 minutes.
  • Follow-up treatments take approximately 30-40 minutes.
  • Chinese herbs and additional modalities may be offered for an additional cost.

Herbal and/or Dietary Consultations

Meggan Baumgartner will talk to you about your health concerns and then, using traditional Chinese diagnostic techniques, tailor an herbal formula and/or dietary recommendations to you. This includes a full health history, assessment and written recommendations. No acupuncture or other modalities are utilized.

  • Initial assessment and consultation takes approximately 60-75 minutes.
  • The cost of herbs, supplements and foods is NOT included.
  • If the patient's condition is stable, herbal refills are provided for the cost of herbs only.

Qigong Classes

Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gung") is a Chinese word that means "energy cultivation" or "energy exercise." Qigong routines have been practiced in China for thousands of years in order to improve health and wellness. Many different styles of qigong exist but most utilize a combination of conscious movement, breath awareness and visualization. Meggan offers a variety of Qigong classes, workshops and presentations throughout the year. The qigong classes range from 3-hour weekend workshops to evening weeknight series. Meggan has been practicing qigong, meditation and yoga for 15 years. She is a certificated qigong teacher through the Ling Gui International Qigong School which is based in Portland, OR.

Meggan is NOT contracted (i.e., is not a preferred provider) with any insurance companies as of JANUARY 1, 2015. Therefore, we do not bill insurance directly for you if your plan covers acupuncture. If you have acupuncture benefits, please plan to pay at time of service. We will provide you with a specialized receipt in order to submit for reimbursement directly from your insurance company. Some (but not all!) health insurance plans provide coverage for acupuncture and related modalities. To find out if you have acupuncture coverage for a non-contracted provider, please call the customer service number on your insurance card.

Additionally, please note:

Any HSA (Health Savings Account) or FLEX medical savings account can be used to pay for for acupuncture services.

Many auto accident insurance policies and worker’s compensation policies will cover acupuncture.

The VA will cover acupuncture as long as there is a referral from one of their medical providers.

Neither Medicaid nor Medicare cover acupuncture services.

The cost of herbs is never covered by insurance.

It is ultimately your responsibility to know your plan's coverage.
