How many treatments will it take? And how frequent are the treatments?

The number of treatments that is required varies based on the type of disorder, length of disorder, and each person’s rate of response to QRA acupuncture. In general, acute disorders may require 3-6 treatments to observe effects. For chronic disorders, 10-12 treatments may be required to observe effects. The basic principle is, if it didn’t occur overnight, it will not go away overnight.

How do I prepare for my QRA Acupuncture Treatments?

Please wear loose clothing where you can roll up your sleeves to your elbows and pants up to your knees and make sure you have eaten a light meal or snack prior to arriving for your treatments. Please DO NOT wear perfume or cologne, or strong smelling lotions, as some of our patients have severe allergies and strong smells can trigger an allergy attack and impede their treatments.

Insurance

Short Answer is Yes. 
 
While some insurance companies do cover acupuncture treatments, it is essential to note that the primary purpose of insurance companies is not necessarily to prioritize patient benefit. Instead, they are primarily profit-driven entities. Insurance policies are designed to manage risk and maintain financial solvency, not to ensure all desired treatments are accessible to policyholders.
 
Coverages vary widely based on the insurance company and the specific policy. Acupuncture, often considered an alternative or complementary medicine, might not be covered under many standard insurance policies. This is partly due to the fact that such treatments do not always align with traditional western medical practices, which insurance companies typically prioritize.
 
Therefore, while some patients may find significant relief or health benefits from acupuncture, that does not automatically translate to insurance coverage. Always remember to check the specific terms of your insurance policy and consult with your insurance provider to understand what treatments and services are covered. Insurance is a business, and its primary concern is managing financial risk, not necessarily providing the broadest range of treatment options for policyholders.
 
With that said, we are IN-NETWORK with Aetna, SANA, United Healthcare (UHC), Triwest (Veteran’s Choice).  Please call us if you have one of these insurances and we can call to verify if your specific plan covers acupuncture.
 
We strive to offer the best care and service to our patients, and in pursuit of this, we have decided to operate as an OUT-OF-NETWORK provider with BCBS, Cigna, Humana. These companies often have numerous administrative processes and may not offer the most favorable coverage for patients and reimbursements for providers.
 
Our commitment to provide an exceptional, 5-star service and help our patients achieve their desired results would be challenged if we decided to go in-network with these insurance companies.
 
If your priority is to ensure that your insurance covers acupuncture, we understand and respect that decision. We can assist you by referring you to an excellent clinic that accepts your insurance.
 
However, if your goal is to achieve the best possible results for your health concerns and insurance coverage for acupuncture is secondary, then we are the right clinic for you. We focus on individual care plans to attain the best outcomes for our patients, and we would be thrilled to discuss this further with you. Please give us a call at your earliest convenience.

The ACHIEVE Difference

What separates your Clinic from others?
Aren’t all Acupuncture clinics the same?

Achieve Integrative Health is the Largest Acupuncture & Wellness Clinic in the Austin Metro.  We are the go to acupuncture clinic for Austin’s Top Neurologist and Pain Management Specialists.  Our focus is on Restorative Care, which means we use natural therapies to help restore function back to your organs, so that your body can heal itself by itself without drugs, surgery, and pills so that you can go back to doing the things you love, with whom you want, whenever you want.
 
At Achieve Integrative Health, we know there’s a difference between “time spent” and “experience gained”. While many clinics measure their experience in years, we measure ours in the number of patients we have treated—and the results we’ve achieved together.
 
Yes, time matters—but what matters more is how that time is spent. We pride ourselves on having served a larger volume of patients compared to other acupuncture clinics in the Austin Metro. This means that our practitioners have honed their skills and expanded their expertise across a wider array of health concerns and unique patient needs. 
 
By treating more patients, we’ve encountered a broader spectrum of cases. We’ve seen first-hand the myriad ways that acupuncture can help, from eliminating chronic pain, reversing diabetes to helping women conceive. Although we specialize in helping people with Neurological Problems, Chronic Pain and Supportive Cancer Therapy, this diversity of experience allows us to better understand and tailor treatments to each new patient who walks through our doors.
 
Our extensive experience with a high number of patients also means we have refined our approach to patient care. We know how to listen, adapt, and personalize—ensuring that every individual receives the treatment that’s right for them. This isn’t just a numbers game—it’s about providing superior, personalized care, time and time again.
