Spirit Gate Acupuncture & Wellness is not contracted with any insurance companies, but we will happily provide you with a super bill and any needed assistance in seeking reimbursement. If you have a PPO, we can verify your insurance benefits and submitclaims on your behalf.
We understand that circumstances may arise that prevent you from keeping an appointment. While we would prefer 48 hours notice, we require at least 24 for a cancellation. This allows other patients that are waiting for a cancellation to be notified. Cancellations without at least 24 hours notice will incur a fee for the full amount of the service.
At our West LA location, there is parking beneath the building. The first 30 minutes are free, and additional time should cost you about $1. At LOOM, there is abundant street and meter parking.
What should I wear?
The goal is for you to be comfortable. Think of something that you would want to take a small nap in. Loose-fitting is likely preferred.
What are the benefits?
Acupuncture is a form of preventative medicine, in order to keep all systems in your body healthy. It reduces stress, improves all systems in the body and is enhanced optimally when Qi is flowing through the body.
What is included?
At the beginning of each appointment, we will meet for an intake or renewal of your symptoms and goals. Along with needling, which is described in detail here, appointments can also include moxibustion, cupping, earseeds and aromatherapy. Each session will vary depending on what is needed to meet your goals and that will optimize your Qi.
"Katya has a way of making you feel like you and your goals through acupuncture are her only priority. I truly appreciate her love of essential oils that she intuitively adds to every session.”
