Traditional Chinese Medicine uses many different methods to help the body return to balance. Some of the modalities include:

  • Acupuncture - made of hair-thin stainless steel, single-use needles are inserted into the skin in order to activate different acupuncture points and channels on the body.
  • Chinese Herbal Medicine - the strength of Chinese medicine in treating internal disease or traumatic injury truly lies in its herbal traditions. TCM uses formulas that have been passed down for millennia which are then adjusted to fit the individual needs of the patient. Chinese herbs may be used externally or taken internally, and come in many forms such as raw herbs which you cook at home, granules which you mix with water, and pills or capsules which you may carry around with you on the go.

  • Moxibustion - Moxa is an aged form of Mugwort, or Artemesia vulgaris. It is burned and held above the skin or on a needle to warm different points on the body.
  • Cupping - also known as "Flash Cupping" or "Fire Cupping", this technique uses glass cups to pull out "chills" from the body. It is most commonly used when a person is just coming down with a cold and has chest or respiratory problems. Cupping is also common in treating neck, shoulder, or back pain and is used with many sports injuries. 
  • Guasha - literally "scraping sand," this technique helps improve blood circulation in the muscle layers. It is commonly used whenever there is muscle pain in the back, neck, shoulders, or torso. Many people ask for a guasha treatment in order to help "detox" their body. 
  • Tui Na - Chinese type massage intended to move qi and blood, and break up any stagnation or congestion in the body. 
  • E-Stim - Electrical stimulation of acupuncture points has been used for years for the treatment of things such as muscle sprain/strain, sciatic pain, muscle cramping, neuropathy, or other forms of pain.

Length: Most treatments last between 45-55 minutes. For the first visit, however, we may spend up to 60-75 minutes since we provide a thorough explanation of Chinese Medicine for those who are unfamiliar with it, do a thorough intake to find any underlying patterns of disharmony in your body, determine your constitutional nature, and develop an individual treatment plan. 

Payment: Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.

Prices: 

  • First office visits (initial exam and treatment): $150 
  • Subsequent visits: $125

Cancellation Policy: Because we generally only schedule one patient at a time, any missed appointment, or showing up 20 minutes past your appointment time will result in a full office visit charge of $75 that will be due before the next visit. In the same spirit, if, for any reason, we make a mistake and miss our appointment, we will credit you $85 towards your next visit. Habitually late patients will not be re-scheduled. 

Insurance: KC Acupuncture is an Out-of-Network provider credentialed with some insurance companies. Many insurance companies in Delaware cover acupuncture services. Most, however, only cover acupuncture for pain-related issues. If this is the reason for your visit, we will be happy to verify your benefits for you to see if you have coverage.

Hours: Kevin sees patients in his Rehoboth Beach office one or two weekends per month. Hours are 3:00-7:00 Saturday afternoons and 8:00-1:00 Sunday mornings. Patients are seen by appointment only. To make an appointment, click here.
